After Harvey Weinstein, Golden Globe Award-winning comedian and writer Aziz Ansari, who is popularly known for his role in Master of None, has been accused of sexual assault by a woman when she reportedly went on a date with him previous year.

She claims the Master of None star asked for her phone number and they exchanged texts for a week before arranging a date in September, which reportedly ended with Grace in an Uber on the way home, "in tears".

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. While Aziz is yet to respond to the allegations, the girl described her experience of watching him receiving an award while wearing the Time's Up pin "painful", an act which prompted her to open up. She said that after the sexual encounter, Ansari acted like nothing had ever happened. It turned into the worst night of my life'. "I'm in a gown, and I walked up to Aziz and said, 'What'd you just shoot with?'" The two went out to dinner in Manhattan and, after they returned to his apartment, Grace claims that he grew aggressive, repeatedly placed her hand on his crotch, and used a move that she referred to as "the claw".

Upon receiving a text from Aziz the next day, Grace took the opportunity of letting the comedian know how she felt about their date. "You ignored clear non-verbal clues; you kept going with advances", the photographer expressed. Last night might've been fun for you, but it wasn't for me.

Chasing 458, South Africa had its back against the wall and had to survive the last day on a deteriorating pitch at the Wanderers. India have won just two Test matches on South African soil in 25 years of touring - in 2006-07 and 2010-11.

Though Ansari responded to Grace's text with an apology mentioning that he "clearly misread things in the moment" it was clear the damage was well and truly done.

"Aziz Ansari recently won his first Golden Globes for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy for Master of None". Now, the latest person to be accused of improper behaviour is comedian and noted feminism activist Aziz Ansari. 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.

Ansari, 34, who shot to worldwide fame with the popularity of his Netflix comedy Master of None, has been accused of coercing the photographer into having oral sex with him.
