Monica Lewinsky has the internet howling with an emoji that poked fun at herself in the best way.
On Saturday, the former White House intern shared a tweet by UberFacts which asked, “What’s the most high-risk, low-reward thing you’ve ever done?” which Lewinsky answered with a side-eye emoji.
Many of her 1 million followers appreciated her humor, calling it “honestly the most refreshing thing on this platform” and hilarious. “You went from patient zero for online bullying to national treasure and great American hero with grace and aplomb,” someone tweeted.
“You are a shining example of womanhood,” applauded another. “The all time-most epic tweet that will never ever be topped. Well done,” wrote one.
Lewinsky’s answer stood out among others, which described rescuing a turtle on a road and incurring thousands of dollars of debt to pay for graduate school.
In 1998, Lewinsky’s affair with then-President Bill Clinton and the impeachment hearing that led to his acquittal, put the college grad in the global spotlight — first, as a national joke, then, an anti-bullying activist and now a writer.
