A week ago, The New York Times published a story detailing decades of sexual harassment and abuse by Harvey Weinstein. Since the article's publication, several celebrities including Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie have come forward to share their own stories Weinstein's disgusting behavior. Actress and model Cara Delevingne is another addition to the list of women Weinstein harassed. She recently opened up about two separate incidents with him.
As people continue to come forward and share their experiences of sexual harassment at the hands of Harvey Weinstein, one thing is becoming clear: This scandal runs deep and it will have a lasting impact on all of Hollywood.

Delevingne released the following statement to Huffington Post's Yashar Ali:
I just received this statement from @Caradelevingne detailing her experience with Harvey Weinstein. Thank you, Cara. https://t.co/SA1D05lYH4— Yashar Ali 🐘 (@Yashar Ali 🐘)1507742327.0
Delevingne is openly bisexual and has previously dated singer Annie Clark (also known as St. Vincent).
via: GettyFor Weinstein to insist that Delevingne would "never make it as an actress in Hollywood" because of who she dates is absolutely ridiculous and despicable. Weinstein's behavior in her second story is even more reprehensible: "A year or two later, I went to a meeting with [Weinstein] in the lobby of a hotel with a director about an upcoming film. The director left the meeting and Harvey asked me to stay and chat with him. [...] He then invited me to his room. I quickly declined and asked his assistant if my car was outside. She said it wasn't and wouldn't be for a bit and I should go to his room. At that moment I felt very powerless and scared but didn't want to act that way hoping that I was wrong about the situation. When I arrived I was relieved to find another woman in his room and thought immediately I was safe. He asked us to kiss and she began some sort of advances upon his direction. I swiftly got up and asked him if he knew that I could sing. And I began to sing... I thought it would make the situation better...more professional...like an audition...I was so nervous."
