Aziz Ansari has responded to accusations of sexual misconduct involving a Brooklyn-based photographer named Grace. “In September of last year, I met a woman at a party. We exchanged numbers. We texted back and forth and eventually went on a date. We went out to dinner, and afterwards we ended up engaging in relations, which by all indications was completely consensual,” Ansari says in a statement shared by Us Weekly. “The next day, I got a text from her saying that although ‘it may have seemed OK,’ upon further reflection, she felt uncomfortable….I took her words to heart and responded privately after taking the time to process what she had said.” She recalls the story very differently.
