Golden Globe Winner Aziz Ansari Accused Of Sexual Assault

Golden Globe Winner Aziz Ansari Accused Of Sexual Assault

A 23-year-old NY photographer has spoken out about a distressing experience with comedy actor Aziz Ansari, saying he sexually harassed her after a date, on "the worst night of her life". 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 chose 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.

Watching Ansari up on the stage gave courage to the woman to talk about her encounter with the actor. According to Grace, Ansari turned the compliment into an invitation.

She describes how Ansari allegedly kept persisting in his attempts to have sex with her, "going to grab a condom within minutes of their first kiss" and sticking his fingers down her throat before performing a sex act on her.

He then allegedly motioned for her to perform a sex act on him.

Grace claims that after she told Ansari that she wanted to slow down, he kept asking, "Where do you want me to f*** you?"

Even as the 22-year-old photographer was busy processing what had just happened to her, the day after their date, Ansari reached out to Grace. She shared a screenshot of her text messages with Ansari after the awful encounter.

Grace, who was miserable after the date replied back and wrote, " Last night might've been fun for you, but it wasn't for me. "I want to make sure you're aware so maybe the next girl doesn't have to cry on the ride home".

Grace says she never met with Ansari again, and it wasn't until the actor received a Golden Globe award earlier this month for his Master Of None series that it began to affect as it originally did. "It was actually painful to watch him win and accept an award". She went on to say, "And absolutely cringe-worthy that he was wearing the Time's Up pin". 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.

Ansari has not yet responded to these allegations.

The allegations, though still unproven, do raise serious questions over the future of the Golden Globe-winning show, Master of None.

Ansari, 34, who shot to global fame with the popularity of his Netflix comedy Master of None, has been accused of coercing the photographer into having oral sex with him.
