Lewinsky herself has been mercilessly bullied in the public eye. In March 2015, Lewinsky said during a TED Talk that she lost her reputation and dignity because of the scandal. “Not a day goes by that I am not reminded of my mistake, and I regret that mistake deeply,” she said at the time.

The former Celebrity Apprentice host, 70, meanwhile, alluded to Lewinsky’s cheating scandal while campaigning against Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton during the election.
As previously reported, Modern Family star Julie Bowen was criticized for joking about Donald and Melania Trump’s son via Twitter last week. “I think Barron is on his Gameboy. Can’t say I blame him,” she captioned one photo of the boy looking down during the swearing-in ceremony. Bowen, 46, went on to joke about a photo that showed Barron looking upset. “Barron, a voting majority shares your horror,” she wrote.
