Monica Lewinsky walked off stage during an interview Monday at a conference in Israel — after the interviewer asked her a question about former President Bill Clinton.
Lewinsky was sitting for the question-and-answer session after speaking about the pros and cons of the Internet at a conference organized by the Israel Television News Company on Monday. The interviewer asked if Lewinsky was still waiting for a “personal apology” from Clinton, Haaretz reported.
“Recently in an interview with NBC News, former President Clinton was rather irate when he was asked if he ever apologized to you personally,” news anchor Yonit Levi said. “Do you still expect that apology, the personal apology?”
Lewinsky, 44, replied, “I’m so sorry, I’m not going to be able to do this,” before storming off stage.
Lewinsky became a household name after her affair with Clinton in the 1990s when she was working as a White House intern in her early-20s. Often ridiculed, she became an anti-bullying advocate and activist.
