Regranned from entertainmentninfo - Aziz Ansari accused of sexual misconduct #FACTS
JAN. 14, 2018. A photographer claims that “ #MasterofNone
” creator AzizAnsari pressured her into sex after the two allegedly met at the 2017 #EmmyAwards
The 23-year-old Brooklyn woman, identified only as Grace, told Babe that she met #Ansari
at an after-party in #LosAngeles
A rep for Ansari did not immediately return a request for comment.
A week after the #Emmys
, where Ansari won for outstanding writing, Grace claims she and Ansari went on a date in #Manhattan
. After dinner at an oyster bar, she said they went back to his #Tribeca
apartment. “In a second, his hand was on my breast,” Grace told #Babe
In graphic detail, she described the alleged encounter, which she claims included oral sex and digital penetration. “He probably moved my hand to his d--k five to seven times,” she said. “He really kept doing it after I moved it away.” Grace also claimed that he pressured her into giving him oral sex. She finally left after more “gross, forceful kisses.” “I know I was physically giving off cues that I wasn’t interested,” she told Babe. “I don’t think that was noticed at all, or if it was, it was ignored.” In a screenshot of text messages allegedly sent between the two, Ansari texted Grace about their “fun” night. In her response, she told him that she felt “uncomfortable” and “uneasy.” Ansari reportedly apologized. “All I can say is, it would never be my intention to make you or anyone feel the way you described,” he allegedly texted her back. “Clearly, I misread things in the moment and I’m truly sorry,” Ansari’s alleged text said.
Grace said that she was encouraged to come forward after seeing Ansari wearing a Time’s Up pin at the #GoldenGlobes
earlier in the month.
The pin, worn by many men at the annual awards show, represented support of the initiative launched by more than 300 actresses that aims to fight sexual harassment and assault in the workplace.
Ansari won best actor in a musical or comedy at the Globes. #NINFONETWORK #ENTERTAINMENTNINFO #VEHICLENINFO #FOODNINFO #BUZZFEED #HUFFPOSTGRAM #NYC #LA #OMAGAZINE
