Aziz Ansari Responds to Sexual Assault Allegations

Aziz Ansari has issued a statement in response to some pretty damning allegations.

Over the weekend, a photographer went public with details of date gone horribly wrong she says took place between her and Ansari in September.

The woman, who goes by the name “Grace” in her account to Babe.net, says she me the actor at a post-Emmys party last fall.

After exchanging phone numbers, she and the Master of None star went out one night before ending up back at Ansari’s apartment.

It was then, the woman alleges, that Ansari became sexually aggressive.

She says he immediately went to get a condom, not long after the two started kissing, and that she continually placed her hand on his penis.

“He probably moved my hand to his dick five to seven times,” she told the aforementioned website. “He really kept doing it after I moved it away.”

Grace explained that Aziz briefly performed oral sex on her and vice versa, but that she also made it clear she didn’t want anything to progress further.

In her recounting of the incident, Grace emphasizes that Ansari ignored her “verbal and non verbal cues.”

After finally stopping their hook-up and collecting her emotions in the bathroom, Grace says she hoped to finish the night on a happy note.

But even after acknowledging that he didn’t want to pursue sex if Grace wasn’t also having “fun,” Ansari pressured her again into going down on him and into making out a lot more.

“It took a really long time for me to validate this as sexual assault,” she told Babe, adding:

“I was debating if this was an awkward sexual experience or sexual assault.

“And that’s why I confronted so many of my friends and listened to what they had to say, because I wanted validation that it was actually bad.”

After their encounter, Grace sent Ansari a text that detailed how he made her feel, saying in part: 

“You kept going with advances. You had to have noticed I was uncomfortable.”

The actor responded with contrition.

Grace shared both of these messages with Babe.net. First, a look at hers:

Now, a look at what Ansari said in reply:

The alleged victim concluded that this was the “worst experience” she ever had with a man and that it made her sick to see Ansari with a Time’s Up pin at the Golden Globes, claiming to support the #MeToo movement.

A few hours after she made these claims, Ansari responded with a statement through his publicist.

It reads as follows:

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 okay,’ upon further reflection, she felt uncomfortable.

It was true that everything did seem okay 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.

We’ll continue to update this story as more news breaks.

Do you think Ansari deserves to be included among the accused men of Hollywood for his actions in this case?

Aziz Ansari Accused of Sexual Misconduct, Assault

Aziz Ansari is the latest big name to be accused of sexual misconduct.

In the case of the former Parks and Recreation star, and current creator of Netflix’s Master of None, an unnamed photographer has come out and accused Ansari of going way too far on a date last year.

According to a series of text messages between Ansari and this alleged victim, the incident occurred in September.

The woman, who is referred to a “Grace” in her account to Babe.net, says she and Ansari bonded at an after-Emmy Awards party due to their shared passion for photography.

They later went out and ended up back at his apartment.

Grace says she felt “uncomfortable” with how quickly Ansari undressed himself and then her.

Within moments of their first kiss, Grace says Ansari went to get a condom.

“I said something like, ‘Whoa, let’s relax for a sec, let’s chill,'” recounts Grace, adding that the actor then briefly performed oral sex on her before asking her to do the same to him.

“It was really quick. Everything was pretty much touched and done within ten minutes of hooking up, except for actual sex,” Grace now details.

Ansari would frequently place his fingers in Grace’s mouth and then try to “finger” her vagina, she says, emphasizing that he also forced her hand onto his penis.

Often.

“He probably moved my hand to his dick five to seven times,” she says. “He really kept doing it after I moved it away.”

Grace describes the troubling encounter as seeming like a “game” to Ansari, who she alleges kept following her around his apartment.

She says she gave him repeated “verbal and non-verbal” clues that she was NOT interested in going any further.

She eventually excused herself to go into the bathroom and collect herself.

After relaying her discomfort to Ansari, she thought the possibility of sex was finally no longer an issue in his mind and she stuck around for a little while longer.

But after the star again motioned for her to give him a blow job and made out with her once more, she left the residence in tears.

“I cried the whole ride home. At that point I felt violated,” says Grace.

The following day, Grace texted Ansari.

“Last night might have been fun for you it wasn’t for me,” she said in a message that she saved and has now made public.

“When we got back to your place, you ignored clear, non-verbal cues; you kept going with advances. You had to have noticed I was uncomfortable,” she continued.

Ansari then replied and did apologize for his actions.

The woman says she decided to come forward after she saw Ansari wearing a Time’s Up pin at the Golden Globes, supporting the foundation that has been set up to support victims of sexual assault.

Ansari won Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy TV Series for his lead role on Master of None at the event.

Grace says her friends helped her grapple with the aftermath of her evening with Ansari.

“It took a really long time for me to validate this as sexual assault,” she told Babe.

“I was debating if this was an awkward sexual experience or sexual assault. And that’s why I confronted so many of my friends and listened to what they had to say, because I wanted validation that it was actually bad.”

Concludes Grace:

“I believe that I was taken advantage of by Aziz.”

“I was not listened to and ignored. It was by far the worst experience with a man I’ve ever had.”

James Franco Denies Sexual Assault Allegations Following Golden Globes Controversy

It’s been a hectic 72 hours in the life of James Franco.

On Sunday night, the celebrated actor/director/artsy weirdo won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of fellow actor/director/artsy weirdo Tommy Wiseau in The Disaster Artist.

It was inarguably one of the biggest highlights of a career filled with critical acclaim and tremendous commercial success.

Within minutes of Franco’s acceptance speech, however, the 39-year-old was publicly accused of several incidents of sexual misconduct and brahypocriteoctrite for his ostensible support of the Time’s Up initiative.

Actress Ally Sheedy was the first to hint at abusive behavior on Franco’s part, posting a series of scathing tweets that have since been deleted.

“Why is James Franco allowed in? Said too much. Nite love ya,” she began.

“James Franco just won. Please never ask me why I left the film/tv business,” Sheedy wrote during Franco’s acceptance speech.

At one point, she implied that actor Christian Slater was also guilty of some sort of misconduct, tweeting:

“Ok wait. Bye. James Franco and Christian Slater at a table on @goldenglobes #MeToo”

Many stated that they were not surprised by Sheedy’s accusations.

Some called attention to Franco’s history of sexual misconduct.

(In 2014, the actor was accused of attempting to seduce a 17-year-old girl via Instagram.)

Others tweeted about appalling firsthand experiences with Franco.

“Cute #TIMESUP pin James Franco. Remember the time you pushed my head down in a car towards your exposed penis & that other time you told my friend to come to your hotel when she was 17?” tweeted a woman named Violet Paley, adding:

“After you had already been caught doing that to a different 17 year old?”

Paley later followed up by writing:

“A couple weeks ago, James offered me & a few other girls an overdue, annoyed, convenient phone ‘apology’. I don’t accept, but maybe some other people’s lives would be made easier if he donated all of his earnings from ‘The Disaster Artist’ to @RAINN01.”

Franco is already experiencing preliminary fallout from the accusations, as at least one promotional event for The Disaster Artist has been canceled.

Franco appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night, where he denied the allegations against him while at the same time expressing sympathy toward his accusers.

“I haven’t read [the accusations.] I’ve heard about them,” Franco said.

“The things that I heard that were on Twitter are not accurate but I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn’t have a voice for so long. So I don’t want to … shut them down in any way.”

Asked about Sheedy’s allegations, Franco replied:

“I have no idea what I did to Ally Sheedy. I directed her in a play Off Broadway. I had nothing but a great time with her, total respect for her. I have no idea why she was upset

We’ll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.

Briana Renee Accuses Estranged Husband of Verbal Assault, Bestiality

Things have escalated quickly between Briana Renee and Matt Grundhoffer.

It’s pretty safe to say these former lovers won’t be exchanging Christmas cards a year from now.

Back on November 10, the Little Women: LA star announced on Instagram that she was leaving Grundhoffer, but she didn’t sound too bitter about the split.

“After 3 years, and bringing the most handsome little boy into this world, we have come to the end of our marriage,” wrote Renee online, adding:

‘We rode til the wheels fell off, and now I’m only focusing on being the best mama.”

Granted, Grundhoffer had admitted to cheating on Renee, so there was clearly tension between the former spouses.

But it still appeared as if the focus would be on an amicable break-up in order to guarantee the very best for the ex-couple’s young son.

But the reality star’s divorce documents have now leaked online and they paint Grundhoffer in some VERY disturbing light.

For starters, Briana is seeking child and spousal support from Grundhoffer.

That’s not unusual, however.

TMZ also reports that she filed for a restraining order last month because she claims Grundhoffer verbally abused her at least twice in November, referring to her a “cuntt” and a “worthless bitch.”

The documents also allege he threatened to take their one-year-old son, Maverick, away from her.

And it gets even worse.

Briana goes on to say Matt is often drunk and that he threatens violence any time he’s inebriated.

She shares a story from April of last year during which he supposedly threatened to “kill everyone in the house” and adds that he talked about suicide last June.

And it gets even worse.

According to Renee, she found exchanges between Grundhoffer and another woman.

She says they were “sexually explicit and disturbing” … and allegedly “involved bestiality and proposals of sex acts with minor children, including the proposal of sex acts with Matthew’s minor child, age 12, from a previous relationship.”

Ummm… YIKES.

Not much more we can say about it than that.

After Renee initially confirmed she was divorcing Grundhoffer, a transgender model came out and labeled the pair’s relationship as the “most dysfunctional ever.”

Does this verify Renee’s claims against her soon-to-be-ex?

No.

But it’s pretty clear these two are not meant for each other, wouldn’t you say?

For now, a judge has awarded Renee full custody of Maverick and has ordered Matt to stay at least 100 yards away from her at all times.
