Monica Lewinsky Speaks Against Cyber-Bullying

“He popped all my buttons, and he ripped my blouse/He Monica Lewinsky-ed all on my gown.” –  Beyonce, “Partition”

It seems like instead of clapping back Monica Lewinsky has decided to take a stance against cyber-bullying, using her infamous affair with former president Bill Clinton as her platform.

Recently the public figure, who is already known for her oral skills, made her first public speech at the Forbes Under 30 Summit in Philadelphia on the topic of cyber-bullying and the Internet’s ability to destroy reputations with one click of a button. She claimed her situation was a form of identity theft, and uses statistics to point out the increase in Internet-spurred suicides due to cyber-bullying.

To lighten the mood Lewinsky jokingly references how her claim to fame has landed her in rap lyrics of some of the most notable artists including Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, and Lil’ Wayne just to name a few, and tells the audience that she simply made the mistake of falling in love with her boss as a 22-year-old intern.

Cyber-bullying is a serious issue, especially with more social networking sites and tools becoming available everyday. It’s good to see that Lewinsky is choosing to use her voice for a greater cause.
