Monica Lewinsky discussed cancel culture in the official trailer for her upcoming documentary “15 Minutes of Shame.”

“Imagine waking up with the whole world talking about you because your mistake, your secret, has now been made public. Trust me: I know a little something about this. I was Patient Zero of having a reputation destroyed because of the internet — and I would not be the last,” the 48-year-old activist said during the trailer.

The activist appeared on the “Today” show in earlier this month to discuss her project.

“It’s not just people in power who have voices. That’s one of the beauties and the beasts of social media,” Lewinsky explained. “More people can be heard.” 

She added: “We’re living in a culture and world now where we’re drowning in shame. We’re taking a 360 look at this culture of public shaming, public humiliation culture, and trying to ask the question, ‘Where are we going?’”

“I think the takeaway of anyone watching this who is struggling or feels like they’ve been shamed is that you can get through it,” she concluded.

Lewinsky produced the HBO Max project with director Max Joseph. It’s set to be released on Oct. 7.
