Aziz Ansari Is Facing Allegations From A Sexual Encounter In 2017

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".

The screenshot showing Ansari texted her, "It was fun meeting you last night".

According to the article, the two met when Grace approached him after she noticed Ansari taking pictures at the 2017 Emmy awards after-party with an old film camera.

Aziz Ansari has yet to respond to the accusations. After going to the bathroom to collect herself, she returned to tell him that she didn't want to feel forced, to which he allegedly responded kindly, telling her to take a seat and "chill".


The allegations, though still unproven, do raise serious questions over the future of the Golden Globe-winning show, Master of None. "He got the cheque and then it was bada-boom, bada-bing, we're out of there", she told Babe. She claims he nearly immediately began kissing, fondling and undressing her and then said he was going to grab a condom. This coincidence helped them hit things off and saw Grace later typing in her number in the actor's phone at his suggestion.

Sharing details of her story with the site, Grace said Ansari repeatedly pulled her hand towards his genitals despite her giving verbal and non-verbal signals to indicate she was not consenting. She allegedly told him to "relax for a sec", and they resumed kissing, eventually performing oral sex on one another. The next day, Ansari reportedly sent Grace a text message saying it was "fun" to meet her. It was at that time that her memories of the alleged incident flooded back.

The woman says she chose to come forward after she saw Ansari wear a Times Up pin at the Golden Globes, where he won Best Actor.

"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. "It was by far the worst experience with a man I've ever had".
