  • Aziz Ansari Issues Statement Claiming Sex Was “Completely Consensual”

The comedian-actor Aziz Ansari, a self-declared feminist has been accused of sexual assault by a NY photographer. It was at that time that her memories of the alleged incident flooded back.

Ansari's accuser who identified referred to as "Grace" told the publication, Babe, that she made a decision to share her story when she saw Ansari wearing the "Time's Up" pin at the Sunday's ceremony, where he crowned the much-prestigious "Best Actor" award.

The accusations against actor comes as no surprise considering several big names in Hollywood, ever since the Harvey Weinstein scandal, have been called out for their sexual misconducts in the past.

Although she was excited for the date with the Parks and Recreation star, the photographer says the night turned out to be the opposite of a good time.

The Independent has reached out to Ansari's representatives for comment.

"It was fun meeting you last night". "Last night might've been fun for you, but it wasn't for me", she started.

Following a sexual encounter which allegedly involved Grace's repeated attempts to halt his advances, Ansari reportedly kept trying to initiate further contact, despite Grace noting that "she used verbal and non-verbal cues to indicate how uncomfortable and distressed she was".

Moscow considers Trump's Iran nuclear deal comments as 'extremely negative'
Last year, Trump "decertified" the deal , giving lawmakers a 60-day window to reimpose sanctions on Iran. The Iranian foreign ministry has said it would not accept "any changes, now or in the future".


"I cried the whole ride home", Grace said of her trip back to her apartment.

Ashamed of ignoring the obvious signs of discomfort, Ansari apologised along the lines, "Clearly, I misread things in the moment and I'm truly sorry".

The Instagram handle by the username "babedotnet" also shared the screenshots of their flirtatious WhatsApp conversation that happened over the following week after Ansari and Grace exchanged their phone numbers at the after-party.

Ansari has not yet responded to these allegations.

"It was actually painful to watch him win and accept an award", she said. I think that started a new fire, and it kind of made it more real [.] I believe that I was taken advantage of by Aziz.

Netflix, which recently axed Kevin Spacey from the award-winning show, House of Cards, over allegations of sexual misconduct and pulled the plug on a comedy special from Louis CK after he was accused of sexual misconduct with women, could very well put Master of None through the sharp end of the same axe or terminate Ansari's contract with the production house. Now, the latest person to be accused of improper behaviour is comedian and noted feminism activist Aziz Ansari.

Either, way, the story only represents trouble for Master of None and for Ansari who had just begun to make a mark in the industry.
