Award-winning comedian and actor, Aziz Ansari has been accused of sexual misconduct by a woman, who has chosen to remain anonymous. The allegation came forward through “babe.net,” where Katie Way detailed the night “Grace” (a pseudonym) was sexually assaulted. This sparked a string of tweets, and we have the details below.

Recent Golden Globe winner, Aziz Ansari released a statement regarding the allegations made against him, saying that he believed it was consensual, but is deeply apologetic for not understanding the situation. While there are many who, after reading Grace’s account, support the victim, many are standing up for the actor instead.

According to the report posted on “babe.net,” Grace, 23, is a photographer who attended the 2017 Emmy Awards after-party, where she met Aziz Ansari. She noticed that he, like her, was taking pictures with the same camera from the ’80s. The two got to talking, which led to flirting, and ultimately, she put her phone number in Ansari’s phone.

When she landed back in New York, she already had a text from the actor. After a week of “flirtatious banter,” he asked her out on a date, to which she agreed. “Grace said it was surreal to be meeting up with Ansari, a successful comedian and major celebrity, and she was ‘excited’ for their date.”

She wore “a tank-top dress and jeans” to fit the “‘cocktail chic’ dress-code” he suggested, and had drinks at his Manhattan apartment before going to dinner at a restaurant she believed he was eager to leave.

They went back to his place, where Grace commented on his marble countertops. To that, she said, he replied “How about you hop up and take a seat?” before kissing her, and touching her breasts.

Ansari allegedly undressed Grace before removing his clothing. When he was looking for a condom “within minutes of their first kiss,” she “said something like, ‘Whoa, let’s relax for a sec, let’s chill.’”

“Most of my discomfort was expressed in me pulling away and mumbling. I know that my hand stopped moving at some points,” Grace told Babe. She admits that she does not know if Ansari was aware of her hesitation. He reportedly performed oral sex on her and, after his request, she did the same to him. Still, she recounted, he asked her to take things further:

“I wasn’t really even thinking of that, I didn’t want to be engaged in that with him. But he kept asking, so I said, ‘Next time.’ And he goes, ‘Oh, you mean second date?’ and I go, ‘Oh, yeah, sure,’ and he goes, ‘Well, if I poured you another glass of wine now, would it count as our second date?’”

Ansari allegedly continued to attempt to pressure Grace, and when she continued to deny his advances, suggested they “chill, but this time with our clothes on.”
