Actor and stand-up comedian Aziz Ansari, who recently won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television Series - Musical and Comedy, has been accused of sexual misconduct by a Brooklyn, New York based photographer.
Grace said that she first met Aziz during the after party of Emmys 2017, where they shared numbers and later chose to go on a date.
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.
Ansari's accuser who identified referred to as "Grace" told the publication, Babe, that she chose to share her story when she saw Ansari wearing the "Time's Up" pin at the Sunday's ceremony, where he crowned the much-prestigious "Best Actor" award. Recounting her meeting she said: "I stood up, and I'm like tipsy at this point and feeling really confident".More news: Cahill suffers injury in Chelsea clash with Leicester
Grace claims she responded: "Last night might've been fun for you, but it wasn't for me. You had to have noticed I was uncomfortable". She then said that they walked back to his apartment in Franklin Street, and started kissing.
The Independent has reached out to Ansari's representatives for comment. "You ignored clear non-verbal clues; you kept going with advances". She continued, "I want to make sure you're aware so maybe the next girl doesn't have to cry on the ride home".
An article in Babe reports the 23-year-old photographer, named only as "Grace" to protect her anonymity, describing in uncomfortable detail an encounter which allegedly took place last year after they met at an Emmy Awards afterparty.
The Instagram handle by the username "babedotnet" also shared the screenshots of their flirtatious WhatsApp conversation that happened over the following week after Ansari and Grace exchanged their phone numbers at the after-party. Clearly, I misread things in the moment and I'm truly sorry. And absolutely cringe-worthy that he was wearing the Time's Up pin.More news: Signet Jewelers (SIG) Earns Daily News Impact Rating of 0.10
