Woman alleges Aziz Ansari assaulted her after date

A Brooklyn-based photographer gave a first-person account of how her date with Ansari turned into one of her nightmares. "I'm in a gown, and I walked up to Aziz and said, 'What'd you just shoot with?','" the woman said, noticing both she and Ansari were using the same retro camera.

While many females are raising their voices against the sexual misconduct they have faced in the past year, the women known as "Grace" shared her poor experience with the digital publication Babe. While she explains that she was initially "excited" for the date, the night would terminate with her in tears.

Grace claimed that following an initial meeting at Ansari's apartment, and a whirlwind dinner at a NY restaurant, the pair travelled back to his apartment where he reportedly began "undressing her, then he undressed himself".

She says this was a common theme throughout their encounter: he would charge forward, attempting to initiate sex, and she'd try to put the brakes on.

She also says that he persistently followed her around the apartment as she tried to withdraw, kept trying to put her hand on his dick, and ignored her non-verbal cues that she was uninterested, like when she says she stopped moving her lips while they were kissing and "went cold".

Grace said that she asked him to slow down and told him that she was uncomfortable. 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.


"I remember saying, 'You guys are all the same, you guys are all the f-ing same.' Ansari asked her what she meant". "He got the cheque and then it was bada-boom, bada-bing, we're out of there", she told Babe. "You ignored clear non-verbal clues; you kept going with advances", the photographer expressed. It was at that time that her memories of the alleged incident flooded back. She told him that she didn't want to feel "forced", or she would "hate" him.

The following day, Grace allegedly sent Ansari a text message explaining how uncomfortable he had made her the previous night. He wrote, "I'm sad to hear this". "Last night might've been fun for you, but it wasn't for me", she started.

Ansari or his representation have not commented on the accusations yet. Ansari purportedly replied, "Clearly, I misread things in the moment and I'm truly sorry".

While Ansari hasn't responded yet, there has been a higher number of people outraging over Ansari's misconduct on social media.

Grace said she never saw Ansari again, that is until she saw him win a Best Actor award at the 2018 Golden Globes.
