‘Orange is the New Black’ Cast Apologizes to Monica Lewinsky


The stars of Netflix’s hit prison drama Orange Is The New Black have apologized to Monica Lewinsky over an onscreen joke about the former White House intern.

The gag featured a crude reference to her affair with former President Bill Clinton, and Lewinsky, who is a big fan of the show, revealed how it upset her in a new column for Vanity Fair magazine.

She writes, “I did what I usually do in these situations where the culture throws me a shard of my former self. After the cringing embarrassment, the whiff of shame, and the sense that I am no longer an agent running my own life, I shuddered, I got up off the sofa, and I turned it off.”

Orange Is The New Black star Taylor Schilling has now said sorry for the jibe, telling E! Online, “I apologize, Monica Lewinsky, for the show – honestly. If you were offended, nobody wants to offend anyone.”

Kate Mulgrew, who also appears in the series, adds, “I think if you’ve been subject to everything that she’s been subjected to, you’d be sensitive about that, too.”
