US comedian and actor Aziz Ansari has responded to the accusations which said that he took advantage of a woman whom he had dated last year.
The woman, who has put these allegations on Ansari, said that the date with Ansari ended up being by far the worst experience with a man she has ever had.
She said :
“I believe that I was taken advantage of by Aziz.”
She told that she was uncomfortable with how quickly the sexual activity escalated at his apartment after dinner and that he either did not notice or ignored her discomfort.
She said he moved her hand to his genitals repeatedly and pressured her to perform sexual acts after she told him she was uncomfortable.
Recently, Ansari said in a statement:
“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 OK’, upon further reflection, she felt uncomfortable. It was true that everything did seem OK 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.”
The accuser also said that she wanted to speak up after the star wore a Time’s Up pin at the Golden Globes ceremony held recently.
