Comedian and actor Aziz Ansari has been accused by a New York-based photographer of sexual misconduct during a date. Relating her account to babe.net, the victim, whose real name has not been revealed, narrated the night she met Ansari and how they ended up going on a date a week later.

During the encounter it is alleged he also rammed his penis on her bottom to simulate sex.

She claims they exchanged numbers and agreed to go on a date in September 2017.

When the pair returned to his apartment on trendy Franklin Street, she said they kissed, but she declined sex when Ansari offered to get a condom. And she says that he then coerced her into performing oral sex on him.

The alleged victim says she used "verbal and non-verbal cues" to indicate her distress and lack of consent, and that she even turned stiff at one point to indicate her displeasure at his Ansari's alleged advances.

She then says they walked back to his apartment, and started kissing. Then he was undressing her, then he undressed himself. The next day, Ansari reportedly sent Grace a text message saying it was "fun" to meet her. "You had to have noticed I was uncomfortable". "I stopped moving my lips and turned cold..."

She compared the comedian's behavior to a horny and aggressive 18 year old boy, rather than a successful 34 year old celebrity who claims to support the #TimesUp movement and even wrote a book on Modern Romance. This coincidence helped them hit things off and saw Grace later typing in her number in the actor's phone at his suggestion. I felt really emotional all at once when we sat down there.

Grace says she debated for some time whether she considered this a bad date or actual assault, and ultimately determined that it was a sexual assault.

Ansari's accuser who identified referred to as "Grace" told the publication, Babe, that she made a decision 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. Really think back to last night. "That last hour was so out of my hand", she shared. Last night might've been fun for you, but it wasn't for me.

On Sunday morning, a story broke in Babe about comedian/actor Aziz Ansari. "You ignored clear non-verbal cues; 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. In it, a contact saved as Aziz responds: "I'm so sad to hear this".
