Babe magazine published an account of a 23 year old woman going under a pseudonym, "Grace" who says she was sexually assaulted by Aziz Ansari on a date last year.

In an interview with Babe.net, a woman who is referred to as "Grace" talks about a date that went terribly wrong with Aziz, claiming it was the worst night of her life. He allegedly kissed her briefly, performed oral sex on her and asked her to do the same. They got introduced to each other and even danced together where they exchanged their numbers. The woman said the date began normally, with dinner at an outdoor oyster bar, but when they went to Ansari's apartment afterward, things quickly escalated to a point of discomfort. The woman says she asked him to slow down, but he continued and performed oral sex on her.

When they walked back in, she complimented his marble countertops.

Grace says that while the TV played, Ansari once again made motions to be aggressive toward her, allegedly kissing her and sticking his fingers down her throat and moving to undo her trousers. "It was literally the most unexpected thing I thought would happen at that moment because I told him I was uncomfortable", Grace alleged to Babe. I don't think that was noticed at all, or if it was, it was ignored, ' she said.

According to Swiss cabinet officials, animals are sentient and therefore, must not be allowed to suffer unnecessarily. Animal welfare advocates praised the new law and said other countries should follow suit.

Grace claimed she repeatedly tried to move away from Ansari, but he kept following her. "It took a really long time for me to validate this as sexual assault". She said she remembers him asking again and again, 'Where do you want me to f**k you?'

Eventually he backed off and apologised later when she texted to say she felt "uneasy" at the night before. She explained she was telling him this so that "maybe the next girl doesn't have to cry on the ride home". I felt really emotional all at once when we sat down there. "That last hour was so out of my hand", she shared. You ignored clear non-verbal clues; you kept going with advances.

The allegations come after a string of TV and film stars have been accused of sexual misconduct of varying level of severity. "Last night might have been fun for you", she wrote, "it wasn't for me". His response: "I'm so sad to hear this", he responded. Ansari reportedly responded, "Clearly, I misread things in the moment and I'm truly sorry".

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