She says the unexpected happened when she went to sit down with him and Ansari allegedly resumed pressuring Grace into having sexual intercourse with him-first making her perform oral sex again, and then bending her over in front of a mirror in a different part of the apartment to initiate coitus.

The pair of them allegedly had dinner, where it felt like "Ansari was eager for them to leave".

Ansari reportedly sent Grace a text the next evening to say it was "fun" meeting her. "She says she eventually left in tears". "In a second, his hand was on my breast". Ansari has not yet responded to the claims against him.

She says when he started sticking his fingers in her throat she used "verbal and non-verbal cues" to indicate her discomfort. She told Babe that she was at first happy with his reaction to her call to slow things down, and then he asked her to just chill on the couch with him. According to Grace, Ansari turned the compliment into an invitation.

Grace (not her real name) told Babe she met Ansari during the 2017 awards season, when they flirted at an Emmys after party. "You ignored clear non-verbal cues; you kept going with advances".

Grace claims she responded: "Last night might've been fun for you, but it wasn't for me".

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. "Clearly, I misread things in the moment and I'm truly sorry".

Ansari, 34, who shot to global fame with the popularity of his Netflix comedy Master of None, has been accused of coercing the photographer into having oral sex with him. 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. When she went back, he allegedly asked if she was okay. "It was actually painful to watch him win and accept an award".

While their date had started off okay, the two soon moved to his apartment where he was quick enough to start initiating sex. And absolutely cringe-worthy that he was wearing the Time's Up pin.

The Independent has reached out to Ansari's representatives for comment. I was not listened to and ignored.
