Golden Globe winner Aziz Ansari has been accused of sexual assault by a Brooklyn photographer, who says she is now speaking out because she resents the fact that he wore a “Time’s Up” pin at the awards.
The woman says she went back to his apartment, let him take off her clothes and gave him oral pleasures. But, didn’t feel good about the encounter afterwards.
Via Page Six:
The unidentified woman told the site Babe.net that she let the “Master of None’’ star take off her clothes and gave him oral sex at his Tribeca apartment this past fall — but the evening left her “uncomfortable” and she felt coerced.
The woman, identified only as a 22-year-old Brooklyn photographer named “Grace,’’ said she went to the apartment of the Netflix funnyman, 34, after a dinner date Sept. 25. They had met at an Emmys after-party the week before, she said.
The accuser said she initially liked him but quickly became disgusted when the sweet-faced comedian turned aggressive.
“Most of my discomfort was expressed in me pulling away and mumbling,” she told Babe.net, adding that she gave Ansari both “verbal and non-verbal cues” to say she was upset.
Still, the woman said, she remained in the apartment, and when Ansari asked for oral sex, she complied. Afterward, they watched an episode of “Seinfeld” before she left in a cab.
The next day, she said the former “Parks and Recreation” star texted her, “Hey — it was fun meeting you last night.”
She says she responded: “Last night might have been fun for you, but it wasn’t for me. You ignored clear non-verbal cues; you kept going with advances.
“I want to make sure you’re aware so maybe the next girl doesn’t have to cry on the ride home.”
Ansari allegedly responded, “I’m so sad to hear this. Clearly, I misread things in the moment and I’m truly sorry.”

Men are going to have to start videotaping their interactions and encounters with women because….sheesh.
