Television personality Monica Lewinsky joined the guessing game about the most iconic event of the '90s, which has gone viral on Twitter, by deciding not to play.


As a participant in one of the most publicized extramarital affairs in history, Monica Lewinsky only has to bat an eyelid to attract whispers of her reputation as "the other woman."

However, this 47-year-old television personality, activist, and fashion designer did more than that in response to a viral tweet about the 90s.

One Twitter user began a hilarious Twitter poll on Sunday when he threw out a thought-provoking question to netizens.

He asked which of the famous events that happened in the '90s would have made the rounds most on the platform if it happened in today's world.

In response, the former White House intern, who made headlines in 1995 for her alleged affair with former United States president, Bill Clinton replied:

"Not playing."


Her two-word reaction spoke volumes, easily winning the polls by a landslide by putting forward what is arguably the most memorable event of them all.

Lewinsky's affair with Clinton, her admission of it, and subsequent denial garnered so much publicity in the late nineties. The resulting legal feud made the activist one of the most talked-about people in the world at the time.

In 2018, she began fostering "Defy the Name," a campaign against cyber-bullying.


Notably, the absence of social media made the public outrage restricted to news outlets and the then-POTUS denied allegations of an affair with Lewinsky.

However, the facts eventually came out during a separate trial for another case in 1998, leading to an impeachment trial. Lewinsky has since been open about her adventures in the White House.

She once recalled how she fell in love with Clinton at 22 and how their affair progressed thereon. Having endured her worst days in the limelight, she was determined to move forward, explaining:

"I hope that participating, by telling the truth about a time in my life, a time in our history, I can help ensure that what happened to me never happens to another young person...again."


To achieve that, the television personality detailed her story in a six-part documentary called "The Clinton Affair," released in 2018.

Aside from filming documentaries, Lewinsky has engaged in other inspiring and community-uplifting projects over the years. In 2018, she began fostering "Defy the Name," a campaign against cyber-bullying.

Years prior, she ventured into television, hosting several shows and making appearances on-screen. She obtained a degree from the London School of Economics before making her big move to New York City, leaving Washington DC and the "Clinton Scandal" behind.

But not even the distance and the years well-spent could erase the stain of Lewinsky's past. As the saying goes: the internet never forgets.
