Los Angeles: Monica Lewinsky, who famously had an affair with former President Bill Clinton in 1998, has condemned the online publication of stolen nude celebrity photographs last week.

While the 41-year-old has never dealt with a nude photo scandal, Lewinsky still felt "compassion" for Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and the numerous other female celebs that fell victim to the recent nude photo leak, reported E! online.

In her second piece as contributor for Vanity Fair, Lewinsky begs the question of whether or not people have crossed the double yellow line when it comes to nude traffic.

After recalling a time when there were purported photos of the former White House intern in her lingerie, Lewinsky wrote, "In the last week or two, as new batches of nude celebrity pictures have circulated around the Web again violating the privacy of the women depicted I was reminded of the few moments of sheer panic I had undergone before I realised my photos were not real.

I felt compassion for these young women." "Like so many others, I feel outrage as a fellow victim, as a civilised individual, and as a woman¿when other women are so easily and publicly violated.

And I have found myself wondering: Have we become a world of pathetic voyeurs? Are we turning into scruffy old men in dirty raincoats slouched in the back row at the Gotham City theatre?" she wrote.
