Bernie Sanders supporter and actress Rosario Dawson said at a Sanders rally Saturday that supporters of the Vermont senator are being bullied and that she stands with Monica Lewinsky against bullying.

“We are literally under attack for not just supporting the other candidate,” Dawson said. “Now I’m with Monica Lewinsky with this this, bullying is bad. She’s actually dedicated her life now to talking about that.”

Lewinsky, infamous for her affair with President Bill Clinton, has become an anti-bullying activist. She gave a TED talk titled “The Price of Shame” in which she said, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.”

“Now as a campaign strategy we are being bullied,” Dawson continued to say. The Hillary Clinton campaign in recent days has accused Sen. Sanders of “lashing out with personal, negative” and dangerous attacks.
