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. "It turned into the worst night of my life".
An article in Babe reports the 23-year-old photographer, named only as "Grace" to protect her anonymity, describing in uncomfortable detail an encounter which allegedly took place last year after they met at an Emmy Awards afterparty.

"I'm so sad to hear this", Ansari allegedly responded.
She says when he started sticking his fingers in her throat she used "verbal and non-verbal cues" to indicate her discomfort.
The accuser, referred to as "Grace", spoke to Babe.net following Ansari's Golden Globes win.
"'In a second, his hand was on my breast.' Then he was undressing her, then he undressed himself".
As it turns out, both Aziz and Grace - then aged 22 - had brought the same kind of cameras to the event - an old model from the 80s. She said she remembers him asking again and again, 'Where do you want me to f**k you?'
"She says he then resumed kissing her, briefly performed oral sex on her, and asked her to do the same thing to him". She went on to say, "And absolutely cringe-worthy that he was wearing the Time's Up pin".
The woman texted Ansari the next day, "Last night might have been fun for you it wasn't for me". 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.
In an article published by the online publication, Babe, a 23-year-old Brooklyn-based photographer has come forward with details of the alleged incident that took place almost four months ago in New York City. He was honoured for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy for "Master of None" at the 75th Golden Globe Awards. I think that started a new fire, and it kind of made it more real [.] I believe that I was taken advantage of by Aziz.
We reached out to Ansari's rep.so far, no word back.
