Grace also supplied text messages in which Ansari appears to have followed up the incident by telling her, "It was fun meeting you last night".

She claimed that he took her to his place after a quick dinner, where he tried to force himself on her, despite her gestural signs that she was not comfortable.

The alleged victim says she used "verbal and non-verbal cues" to indicate her distress and lack of consent, and that she even turned stiff at one point to indicate her displeasure at his Ansari's alleged advances.

Master of None actor and comedian Aziz Ansari has been accused of sexual assault. "In a second, his hand was on my breast".

"He sat back and pointed to his penis and motioned for me to go down on him". After one last attempt at watching TV with Ansari, the woman says the actor allegedly "kissed her again, stuck his fingers down her throat again, and moved to undo her trousers", which prompted the woman to leave. However, as it turns out, the date didn't go as planned and the night ended with Grace heading home alone in an Uber with tears in her eyes and messaging her friends about what she later described as "by far the worst experience with a man I've ever had".

"She told baby Ansari "kept doing it after I moved it away". You had to have noticed I was uncomfortable".

Grace says that while the TV played, Ansari once again made motions to be aggressive toward her, allegedly kissing her and sticking his fingers down her throat and moving to undo her trousers. I was not listened to and ignored. Verbally, in that moment, he acknowledged that I needed to take it slow. "He said, 'Oh, of course, it's only fun if we're both having fun.' The response was technically very sweet and acknowledging the fact that I was very uncomfortable". Grace wrote in response, "Last night might have been fun for you, but it wasn't fun for me". She told him that she didn't want to feel "forced", or she would "hate" him. "I think that started a new fire, and it kind of made it more real".

"I'm so sad to hear this", he responded.

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.
