Town & Country magazine apologized to Monica Lewinsky in a tweet on Thursday after reportedly uninviting her from an event because former President Bill Clinton decided to attend.

On Wednesday, Lewinsky cryptically called out the magazine on Twitter for rescinding her invitation to the Town & Country Philanthropy Summit, which she said was centered on “social change.”

“Emily Post would def not approve,” she said, referencing the author famous for writing about etiquette.

According to Town & Country’s Twitter, Clinton was invited to introduce guest speaker Emma Gonzalez, who has become well-known for her advocacy work for gun control following an attack at her high school in Florida in February when a former student opened fire and killed 17 people.

Clinton’s press secretary said on Twitter Wednesday that the former president was unaware of Lewinsky’s “invitation or it being rescinded.”
