'Master of None' star Aziz Ansari accused of sexual assault

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".

She also said that Aziz forced her into having oral sex. "In a second, his hand was on my breast". The two initially kissed, but when Grace asked him to " slow down" Aziz instead responded by saying "Where do you want me to f**k you?" "I want to make sure you're aware so maybe the next girl doesn't have to cry on the ride home".

The accusations against actor comes as no surprise considering several big names in Hollywood, ever since the Harvey Weinstein scandal, have been called out for their sexual misconducts in the past.

Grace went on to explain that she continued to give off more non-verbal cues that she was not comfortbale with the way things were going to no avail.

While Ansari hasn't responded yet, there has been a higher number of people outraging over Ansari's misconduct on social media. Grace wrote in response, "Last night might have been fun for you, but it wasn't fun for me". Ansari purportedly replied, "Clearly, I misread things in the moment and I'm truly sorry".

Grace told the website she was shocked by Ansari's behaviour, as he has had a reputation for being a "woke" guy who respects women.

There will be others that disagree with that, but he has the opportunity to prove it against Liverpool this weekend. Who should Man City sign? Liverpool have scored 50 Premier League goals at an average of more than two per game.

Grace says she never met with Ansari again, and it wasn't until the actor received a Golden Globe award earlier this month for his Master Of None series that it began to affect as it originally did.

He has built a career on comedy that focuses on issues of race and sexual consent, which has earned him considerable praise from prominent female voices.

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.

Grace told the publication, "It was actually painful to watch him win and accept an award".

Recalling the events of the night, Grace recounts how the successful TV actor and a self-proclaimed feminist, took the young photographer back to his place after a short dinner and allegedly made sexual advances on her. She went on to say, "And absolutely cringe-worthy that he was wearing the Time's Up pin". I was not listened to and ignored.

The Independent has reached out to Ansari's representatives for comment.
