Actor Aziz Ansari responds to assault claim
MASTER Of None star Aziz Ansari has responded to allegations of sexual misconduct by saying he believed his encounter with the woman concerned had been ‘completely consensual’.
The comedy actor told Babe magazine, which reported the woman’s claims, that she got in touch the day after their date to say she had ‘felt uncomfortable’. He had been ‘surprised and concerned’ but ‘took her words to heart’ and apologised after ‘taking time to process’ them, he said.
The woman had told Babe that her date with Ansari, 34, last September had been a ‘violating’ and ‘painful night’.
