Monica Lewinsky has weighed in on the high-profile Johnny Depp and Amber Heard defamation trial.
The former White House intern, who had an affair with former president Bill Clinton between 1995 and 1996, has warned of the case’s ‘larger implications’.
In an op-ed for Vanity Fair on May 31, Lewinsky penned: “Unless you’re a troglodyte, you’ve been exposed to something about the Depp v Heard trial in the past few weeks.

“Like many, I have averted my eyes – with guilty fascination – even as I’ve kept track of the defamation conflagration.”
The 48-year-old went on to address the ‘vitriolic discourse’ and memes that she has seen about Heard, writing: “I wasn’t surprised that the memes about Amber Heard far outnumbered those about Johnny Depp.
“I wasn’t surprised that the cruel and vitriolic discourse was predominantly aimed at the woman. And I shouldn’t have been surprised (but I was) that shortly after my search, I began to be served suggested posts on the trial.”
The trial came to a conclusion last week but a verdict has yet to be reached.
At the time, she claimed: “I just want Johnny to leave me alone.
“I am harassed, humiliated, threatened every single day. Even just walking into this courtroom. Sitting here in front of the world. Having the worst parts of my life, things I lived through, used to humiliate me.
“People want to kill me and they tell me so every day.”
She continued with her claims, adding: “People want to put my baby in the microwave, and they tell me that.”
