Golden Globe Winner Aziz Ansari Accused Of Sexual Assault

Comedian Aziz Ansari, who has spoken out against sexual assault, has been accused of sexual misconduct by a woman who alleges he pressured her to have sex with him after she said she made it clear she was not interested. The allegation definitely takes the sheen off what has been a great start to the year for the actor in which he became the first Asian to win the prestigious award. Then he was undressing her, then he undressed himself. "I'm in a gown, and I walked up to Aziz and said, 'What'd you just shoot with?'" According to Grace, Ansari turned the compliment into an invitation.

Eventually Grace says they sat and watched television, where "it really hit me that I was violated".

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 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". From there, the woman - who has remained anonymous - describes the events of the night going from somewhat awkward to much, much worse.

Alert level raised after volcano eruption
Ashfall has been reported at the west and southwest slopes and another eruption at 10:50 a.m. that lasted for five minutes. Another eruption occurred later around 11:43 a.m. - it lasted approximately 15 minutes based on seismic record.

Snow in forecast tonight, Sunday
The second round is expected during the evening hours Sunday resulting in an inch or less of snow once again (see map below). Trade winds will return and strengthen through the first half of next week, likely becoming quite strong by midweek.

No one was injured in the incident and all 162 passengers and six crew on board were evacuated, Trabzon Governor Yucel Yavuz said. The Pegasus Airlines had taken off smoothly from the capital Ankara before it landed in Trabzon, reported Reuters.

Ansari's accuser who identified referred to as "Grace" told the publication, Babe, that she chose 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.

We reached out to Ansari's rep.so far, no word back. "You had to have noticed I was uncomfortable". "But he kept asking, so I said, 'Next time.' And he goes, 'Oh, you mean second date?' and I go, 'Oh, yeah, sure, ' and he goes, 'Well, if I poured you another glass of wine now, would it count as our second date?'" He then poured her a glass and handed it to her. Ansari purportedly replied, "Clearly, I misread things in the moment and I'm truly sorry".

Ansari has been a supporter of the Time's Up movement, which aims to eliminate sexual misconduct, and wore a pin emblazoned with the campaign's name at this year's Golden Globe awards.
