Model and actress Cara Delevingne is joining the long list of Harvey Weinstein accusers.

She says in a lengthy Instagram post that Weinstein brought up sexual subjects during more than one business meeting and also tried to get Delevingne to kiss a woman in front of him.

She says she did not participate and left the room. She says she subsequently appeared in a Weinstein Co. film and adds that she “felt awful that I did the movie.”

She says she was afraid to speak out at the time of the incident because she feared she may have somehow been responsible and didn’t want to hurt his family.

Delevingne says in a second post on Wednesday that abuse of women by powerful men happens in every industry. She urged victims to speak out.

A message sent to a Weinstein spokeswoman was not immediately returned.
