Absolutely one of the bravest and strongest Ted Talks to date. 

Lewinsky courageously uses her own case study of public shaming to outline the human toll internet trolling can take. 

"Public shaming as a blood sport has to stop," says Monica Lewinsky. In 1998, she says, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.”

Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become constant -- and can turn deadly. In a brave talk, she takes a hard look at our online culture of humiliation, and asks for a different way.
