Former White House intern Monica Lewinsky was disinvited from speaking at an event after ex-President Bill Clinton was also invited.
Lewinsky was scheduled to speak at a Town & Country magazine philanthropy summit when she received word her presence was no longer welcome.
“dear world: please don’t invite me to an event (esp one about social change) and –then after i’ve accepted– uninvite me because bill clinton then decided to attend/was invited. It’s 2018,” Lewinsky wrote.
The notorious intern, who’s become an anti-bullying activist, added that an article in Town & Country wouldn’t be a suitable consolation.
p.s. …and definitely, please don't try to ameliorate the situation by insulting me with an offer of an article in your mag.

A representative for Clinton said they were unaware of Monica’s dis-invite.
“President Clinton was invited to address the Town & Country Philanthropy Summit. He gladly accepted. Neither he nor his staff knew anything about the invitation or it being rescinded,” tweeted Clinton’s Press Secretary Angel Ureña.
