These days it's tough to figure if it's the sexual assault victims shouting #MeToo or the growing list of famous folks responsible for the disgusting behavior.

The star of Netflix's Master of None is said to have sexually assaulted a woman after she went on a date with him a year ago. The woman, who goes by the changed name "Grace", said she met Ansari at the 2017 Emmy Awards. After their dinner at an Oyster bar they walked back to his apartment at the TriBeCa's Franklin Street.

Ansari, 34, then allegedly told her he was going to grab a condom, minutes after they began kissing. "That last hour was so out of my hand", she shared.

But the main thing was that he wouldn't let her move away from him. She said there was one move he repeatedly did that she called "the claw": "The move he kept doing was taking his two fingers in a V-shape and putting them in my mouth, in my throat to wet his fingers, because she moment he'd stick his fingers in my throat he'd go straight to my vagina and try to finger me". "I stopped moving my lips and turned cold..."

'I know I was physically giving off cues that I wasn't interested. "I don't think that was noticed at all, or if it was, it was ignored". But, she said, he didn't listen and then forcibly performed oral sex on her. "He was very much caught up in the moment, and I obviously very much wasn't", she said. She also performed oral sex on the comedic actor. She said she remembers him asking again and again, 'Where do you want me to f**k you?' She told babe: "I believe that I was taken advantage of by Aziz". She says: "In a second, his hand was on my breast". She continued, "I want to make sure you're aware so maybe the next girl doesn't have to cry on the ride home". "It took a really long time for me to validate this as sexual assault".

The following evening after the alleged encounter, Aziz sent a text message to the woman. "I'm so sad to hear this", the texts read. Ansari purportedly replied, "Clearly, I misread things in the moment and I'm truly sorry". This includes listening to both verbal and non-verbal cues, and continuously checking in with your partner about their comfort.

Grace says she complimented his marble countertops. "I didn't leave because I think I was stunned and shocked", she said.

'This was not what I expected.

Melinda Taub tweeted, "I feel like this will get lost in the convo about if Aziz Ansari Did Sexual Assault - but that feeling when you shut down and stop responding, and the guy just keeps going and you realize that he doesn't care if you're in your body or not?"
