Monica Lewinsky storms off-stage interview after 'off-limits' Clinton question

Before the interview, Lewinsky delivered a speech where she spoke about the 1998 scandal involving Clinton while she was a White House intern. In February she wrote a personal essay for Vanity Fair on the 20th anniversary of the investigation into the affair, in which she admitted that she suffers from PTSD over the fallout from the investigation and publicity, and that the #MeToo movement had changed her perspective on the affair and its aftermath.

"I'm so sorry, I'm not going to be able to do this", Lewinsky responded, before placing her microphone down and leaving the stage.

Later, Lewinsky took to Twitter to explain that the reason she left had to do with Levi's "blatant disregard" of the "clear parameters" that had been set up ahead of time. The confused hosts then rushed opposition lawmaker Yair Lapid onstage to keep the event moving along. "There is no way I'll be interesting enough in the next few minutes but we'll do our best".

During a meeting the day before, Ms Levi had put the question to her and Ms Lewinsky told her it was "off limits".

'I left because it is more important than ever for women to stand up for themselves and not allow others to control their narrative'.

Lewinsky said that when the story broke, she "was shunned from nearly every community which I belonged to, including my religious community".

Last week, it was reported that Bell had told his teammates he would report on Labor Day but Bell quickly refuted that report. Bell and Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown arguably are the best players at their respective positions.

"I'm very sorry that this talk had to end this way", she said.

Levi's employer, the Israeli News Company, said it did its utmost to abide by all agreements made with Lewinsky. "Do you still expect that apology - the personal apology?"

"The question asked was legitimate, worthy and respectful and in no way deviated from Ms. Lewinsky's requests", said company spokesman Alon Shani.

Clinton came under criticism from members of his own party in June after forcefully defending the fact that he never personally apologized to Lewinsky.

Monica Lewinsky walked out of in interview after she was asked about former President Bill Clinton.

In an embarrassing blunder earlier this year, lifestyle magazine Town and Country invited Lewinsky to one of its events, only to uninvite her when they realised they'd also invited Clinton.
