Aziz Ansari most popular as the creator ofMaster of None and his role in Parks and Recreation has come out to respond to allegations of sexual misconduct.
A New-York based photographer accused the star of sexual misconduct after the two went on a date six months ago. Speaking to Babe, she said; “In a second, his hand was on my breast,” she recalls. “It was 30 minutes of me getting up and moving and him following and sticking his fingers down my throat again. It was really repetitive. It felt like a fucking game … most of my discomfort was expressed in me pulling away and mumbling. I know that my hand stopped moving at some points, I stopped moving my lips and turned cold.”
The woman says Ansari was initially okay with her refusal to take things further, but he then later allegedly continued to try to get her to sleep with him. “He sat back and pointed to his penis and motioned for me to go down on him. And I did,” she continues. “I think I just felt really pressured. It was literally the most unexpected thing I thought would happen at that moment because I told him I was uncomfortable.”
Ansari on his part has come out with a statement defending himself.
He said; “In September of last year, I met a woman at a party. We exchanged numbers. We texted back and forth and eventually went on a date. We went out to dinner, and afterwards we ended up engaging in sexual activity, which by all indications was completely consensual.
“The next day, I got a text from her saying that although ‘it may have seemed okay,’ upon further reflection, she felt uncomfortable. It was true that everything did seem okay to me, so when I heard that it was not the case for her, I was surprised and concerned. I took her words to heart and responded privately after taking the time to process what she had said.
“I continue to support the movement that is happening in our culture. It is necessary and long overdue.”
