The model-turned-actress lost in excess of 50,000 followers when she published a post condemning the rapper. 

After watching Surviving R Kellythe new documentary detailing three decades of allegations of abuse, predatory behaviour and pedophilia made against the artist, model and actress Cara Delevingne took to Instagram to share her dismay at the longevity of the artist's career, despite dozens of claims. 

"I am so shocked and outraged at how long this has gone on," she wrote.

"My heart goes out to all the victims of his emotional and physical abuse and their families. This man is a predator that feeds off power and in my opinion is far worse than Harvey Weinstein and needs to be held accountable. I am not trying to compare the two, my point is, Harvey is being investigated and R Kelly is not.

"We have ourselves to blame in this situation, I knew of the allegations but failed to try and understand the severity of the situation. I still continued to listen to his music. Stop separating art from the artist, just because he sings like an angel, doesn’t mean he is one."

Kelly has strongly denied all accusations.

I finished the Surviving R Kelly documentary last night and I am so shocked and outraged at how long this has gone on. My heart goes out to all the victims of his emotional and physical abuse and their families. This man is a predator that feeds of power and in my opinion is far worse than Harvey Weinstein and needs to be held accountable. I am not trying to compare the two, my point is, Harvey is being investigated and R Kelly is not. We have ourselves to blame in this situation, I knew of the allegations but failed to try and understand the severity of the situation. I still continued to listen to his music. Stop separating art from the artist, just because he sings like an angel, doesn’t mean he is one. I still want to applaud @johnlegend @keke @vincestaples @chancetherapper @jadapinkettsmith @ladygaga for continuing the conversation. I really hope that more musicians stand up against this monster #MuteRKelly #MeToo #blackgirlslivesmatter

In her post, Delevingne also commended those who've spoken out; singling out John Legend, Jada Pinkett Smith and Lady Gaga among others. 

The post appeared to invoke a mixed reaction, as – despite continued encouragement – Delevingne seemingly lost 50,000 Instagram users in the immediate aftermath.

Delevingne answered this with another post, declaring that she would not stop communicating her opinions.

This is me realizing I lost more than 50,000 followers yesterday after posting about @rkelly Every time I say something real, something I truly believe, something others may think of as controversial, something that makes people think and ask questions, I lose followers. The followers I lose clearly don’t agree with what I have to say, people that support the ideas and actions of others who are moving backwards and not forwards. In 2019, I want to be more confrontational. Confrontation IS NOT VIOLENCE btw, it’s communication. Something I still struggle with. I have always been taught to avoid confrontation at all costs, which caused me to be silent most of my life, silence causes suppression and suppression causes sickness. Not anymore! Goodbye silence and backwards followers, hello confrontation and forward thinkers. It’s going to be a loud year xxx #MuteRKelly

"Every time I say something real, something I truly believe, something others may think of as controversial, something that makes people think and ask questions, I lose followers,” said Delevingne.

"The followers I lose clearly don’t agree with what I have to say, people that support the ideas and actions of others who are moving backwards and not forwards.

"In 2019, I want to be more confrontational. Confrontation is not violence by the way, it’s communication. Something I still struggle with. I have always been taught to avoid confrontation at all costs, which caused me to be silent most of my life, silence causes suppression and suppression causes sickness. Not anymore! Goodbye silence and backwards followers, hello confrontation and forward thinkers. It’s going to be a loud year."

Surviving R Kelly aired in the US earlier this month and follows the stories of those the accused singer allegedly abused. New investigations have been launched on the back of the Lifetime documentary.

On Wednesday Lady Gaga apologised for working with R Kelly, and said she would be removing their duet Do What U Want from streaming services.

Gaga called the stories "horrifying" and "indefensible", adding: "I stand behind these women 1000%."
