Kate Upton has publicly accused Paul Marciano, the co-founder of the Guess fashion line, of sexual misconduct in two separate social media posts.
On Wednesday, the 25-year-old Sports Illustrated model took to Twitter to name Marciano and lament his ability to still have power in the industry in the midst of the growing “#MeToo” movement sparked by allegations against Harvey Weinstein that led to the fall of many men in positions of power since October 2017.
“It’s disappointing that such an iconic women’s brand @GUESS is still empowering Paul Marciano as their creative director #metoo.”
Soon after, she posted a screencap of her tweet on Instagram accompanied by another caption.
“He shouldn’t be allowed to use his power in the industry to sexually and emotionally harass women #metoo,” she wrote.
Upton did not give further details that would explain why she feels he is guilty of any misconduct. It’s worth noting that, despite her use of the “#MeToo” hashtag, Upton did not specify that she was the victim of any misconduct.
