After Harvey Weinstein, Golden Globe Award-winning comedian and writer Aziz Ansari, who is popularly known for his role in Master of None, has been accused of sexual assault by a woman when she reportedly went on a date with him a year ago. It turned out to be the worst night of her life.
Grace says that things escalated when they returned to Ansari's apartment, saying he quickly began touching her.
Aziz has not responded to the allegations. The victim further spoke of how she didn't want to engage in intercourse with him, and politely started refusing him, which he soon agreed but would continue prodding her to do so.

"When Ansari told her he was going to grab a condom within minutes of their first kiss, Grace voiced her hesitation explicitly". The woman says she asked him to slow down, but he continued and performed oral sex on her.
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.
When they walked back in, she complimented his marble countertops.
Grace went on to share screenshots of the text conversation she and Ansari had the following day after he told her he had "fun meeting you last night". Refinery29 called him a "certified woke bae" in 2016.
As Grace explains, the text exchange was the last time she interacted with Ansari but seeing the actor win at the Golden Globes and wear the "Time's Up" pin while accepting the award brought the events from the horrific night back to her mind.
In an article published by the online publication, Babe, a 23-year-old Brooklyn-based photographer has come forward with details of the alleged incident that took place almost four months ago in New York City. And absolutely cringe-worthy that he was wearing the Time's Up pin. And I did. I think I just felt really pressured. I was not listened to and ignored.
The Independent has reached out to Ansari's representatives for comment.
