A 23-year-old Brooklyn photographer came forward in the wake of multiple sexual harassment and assault allegations, and accused Golden Globe victor Aziz Ansari of sexual misconduct.
"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?'" She met Ansari at the 2017 Emmys after party and put her number in his phone at the end of the night.
The woman named "Grace" in the article spoke about how exciting it was to meet with an award-winning actor and was pumped for their date, which she didn't expect would take a turn for the worst.
The woman, who lives in Brooklyn, spoke to women's website Babe on the condition of anonymity, claiming that the Master of None actor ignored her verbal and non-verbal cues in his Manhattan apartment in September past year. She presented her allegations in a first-hand account of how she went on a date with the comedian, and the night ended with her crying in an Uber.
It goes on to say that the photographer repeatedly moved away from him. "I know that my hand stopped moving at some points, I stopped moving my lips and turned cold". "It was 30 minutes of me getting up and moving and him following and sticking his fingers down my throat again".
That evening Grace received a text message from Ansari saying it was "fun" meeting her. Grace says to have complemented Ansari for his marble countertops which he considered as an invitation.

Following a sexual encounter which allegedly involved Grace's repeated attempts to halt his advances, Ansari reportedly kept trying to initiate further contact, despite Grace noting that "she used verbal and non-verbal cues to indicate how uncomfortable and distressed she was". I think that started a new fire, and it kind of made it more real [.] I believe that I was taken advantage of by Aziz.
A woman who dated Aziz Ansari has accused him of repetitive unwanted advances.
Aziz Ansari has yet to respond to the accusations.
"I cried the whole ride home".
"I'm so sad to hear this", he responded.
She says it was hard watching him at the Golden Globes, where he declared his support for the fight against sexual assault and harassment by wearing a Time's Up pin on the red carpet.
In a 2015 interview Aziz told Slate Magazine: "What I've learned, as a guy, is to just ask women questions and listen to what they have to say".
