Uma Thurman has posted footage of the car crash that took place on the set of Kill Bill to Instagram, just days after highlighting the incident during a recent interview, along with a statement defending director Quentin Tarantino and blaming Harvey Weinstein for the ensuing cover-up.

Speaking to The New York Times, the actor alleged Tarantino persuaded her to partake in the dangerous "stunt" despite knowing there were possible risks.

Following the article's publication, Thurman posted footage of herself driving the car onto Instagram — which she previously described as a “death-box” — adding a new statement about the incident.

“I post this clip to memorialise its full exposure in the NYT by Maureen Dowd. The circumstances of this event were negligent to the point of criminality. I do not believe though with malicious intent,” she wrote alongside the footage.

“Quentin Tarantino was deeply regretful and remains remorseful about this sorry event, and gave me the footage years later so I could expose it and let it see the light of day, regardless of it most likely being an event for which justice will never be possible."

“He also did so with full knowledge it could cause him personal harm, and I am proud of him for doing the right thing and for his courage.

“THE COVER UP after the fact is UNFORGIVABLE. For this, I hold Lawrence Bender [producer], E. Bennett Walsh [executive producer], and the notorious Harvey Weinstein [producer] solely responsible. They lied, destroyed evidence, and continue to lie about the permanent harm they caused and then chose to suppress."

“The cover-up did have malicious intent, and shame on these three for all eternity. CAA [Creative Artists Agency, talent agency] never sent anyone to Mexico. I hope they look after other clients more respectfully if they in fact want to do the job for which they take money with any decency.”
