The woman claimed she went on a date with him and ended up in his apartment. She says the pair had a rushed dinner, where it felt like "Ansari was eager for them to leave".

"In a second, his hand was on my breast", the woman recounted. But this honour seems to be shortlived as he got mired by sexual assault controversy.

She claims she used continual verbal and non-verbal indicators that she was uncomfortable, and eventually told him she didn't "want to feel forced". She told Babe that she was at first happy with his reaction to her call to slow things down, and then he asked her to just chill on the couch with him. After one last attempt at watching TV with Ansari, the woman says the actor allegedly "kissed her again, stuck his fingers down her throat again, and moved to undo her trousers", which prompted the woman to leave.

She says Ansari began making a move on her that he repeated during their encounter. When we got back to your place, you ignored clear non-verbal clues; you kept going with advances. "Last night might've been fun for you, but it wasn't for me", she responded. "Clearly, I misread things in the moment and I'm truly sorry".

Grace told the website she was shocked by Ansari's behaviour, as he has had a reputation for being a "woke" guy who respects women.

Analyzing the Insider Data for MGM Resorts International (MGM)
After $2.72 actual EPS reported by The Boeing Company for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts 5.51% EPS growth. Also, insider Robert Baldwin sold 61,600 shares of the stock in a transaction that occurred on Wednesday, November 15th.

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.

Netflix, which recently axed Kevin Spacey from the award-winning show, House of Cards, over allegations of sexual misconduct and pulled the plug on a comedy special from Louis CK after he was accused of sexual misconduct with women, could very well put Master of None through the sharp end of the same axe or terminate Ansari's contract with the production house. It was at that time that her memories of the alleged incident flooded back. And absolutely cringe-worthy that he was wearing the Time's Up pin. I was not listened to and ignored.

As per the report, the two exchanged "flirtatious texts" over a week or so before Ansari finally asked her to go out on a date.

Only a few days back, Aziz Ansari was basking in the glory of picking his first ever Golden Globe Award.
