A 23-year-old Brooklyn photographer came forward in the wake of multiple sexual harassment and assault allegations, and accused Golden Globe victor Aziz Ansari of sexual misconduct. From there, the woman - who has remained anonymous - describes the events of the night going from somewhat awkward to much, much worse.
She says Ansari continued to push himself on her.
While Ansari hasn't responded yet, there has been a higher number of people outraging over Ansari's misconduct on social media.
"Throughout the course of the night, she says she used verbal and non-verbal cues to indicate how unhappy she was".

An article on women's website Babe detailed Ansari's alleged encounter with a 22-year-old woman referred to as "Grace" in September 2017. She then said that they walked back to his apartment in Franklin Street, and started kissing.
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. She allegedly told him to "relax for a sec", and they resumed kissing, eventually performing oral sex on one another.
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. He has also built his comedic career upon focusing on issues of race and sexual consent, earning him the title of a Refinery29 "certified woke bae" in 2016.
Ansari has been a supporter of the Time's Up movement, which aims to eliminate sexual misconduct, and wore a pin emblazoned with the campaign's name at this year's Golden Globe awards.
"It was actually painful to watch him win and accept an award", she said.
Even as the 22-year-old photographer was busy processing what had just happened to her, the day after their date, Ansari reached out to Grace. And absolutely cringe-worthy that he was wearing the Time's Up pin.
