Grace said that she first met Aziz during the after party of Emmys 2017, where they shared numbers and later made a decision to go on a date. "It turned into the worst night of my life".

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".

Initially "excited" for her date, Grace ended up in tears due to Ansari's sexual advances.

"She told baby Ansari "kept doing it after I moved it away". The woman says she asked him to slow down, but he continued and performed oral sex on her. 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. She then said that they walked back to his apartment in Franklin Street, and started kissing.

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.


Aziz apologised for misreading things. "'I said something like, 'Whoa, let's relax for a sec, let's chill". "She did, but not for long".

Grace also supplied text messages in which Ansari appears to have followed up the incident by telling her, "It was fun meeting you last night".

Even as the 22-year-old photographer was busy processing what had just happened to her, the day after their date, Ansari reached out to Grace. "But he kept asking, so I said, 'Next time.' 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?'" He then poured her a glass and handed it to her. 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. He wrote, "I'm sad to hear this". Ansari purportedly replied, "Clearly, I misread things in the moment and I'm truly sorry".

Ansari has not yet responded to these allegations.
