Aziz Ansari’s career just took a major turn for the worse. Even though he describes himself as a feminist, he has been accused of sexual assault. He attended the Golden Globe awards last week and was wearing a “Time’s Up” pin to show support for victims of assault.
The Daily Caller reports:
Male Feminist Comedian Aziz Ansari Accused Of Sexual Assault
Actor, comedian, and self proclaimed male feminist Aziz Ansari is the latest actor to face sexual assault allegations by a woman who claims the assault was “by far the worst experience with a man I’ve ever had.”
Women’s lifestyle vertical Babe published an interview on late Saturday with a pseudonymous 23-year-old woman named “Grace,” who alleges that Ansari sexually assaulted her on their first and final date when she was 22.
The publication was able to corroborate her claims by cross-referencing the phone number from which his text messages were sent to a public registry.
Grace told the publication that after dinner the couple went back to his place when he immediately started groping her. The details of the encounter are graphic—escalating from aggressive kissing to oral sex, which she says she felt aggressively pressured into performing. Although she did not say “no,” Grace did not offer enthusiastic consent.
Does this mean he is finished like Kevin Spacey and others?
