Wendy Williams Slams Aziz Ansari's Accuser: 'Why Didn't You Just Leave, Dummy'

Wendy Williams Slams Aziz Ansari's Accuser: 'Why Didn't You Just Leave, Dummy'

After seeing him wear a "Time's Up" pin at the Golden Globes last Sunday, a 23-year-old Brooklyn photographer made the decision to go public with her story of a sexual encounter with Aziz Ansari that left her feeling uncomfortable and violated.

Grace is the only woman to accuse Ansari of inappropriate sexual behavior publicly, and Ansari apologized to her at the time. But her displeasure was evidently lost on Ansari, who texted her the next day to say, "It was fun meeting you last night". She adds that "whether Ansari didn't notice Grace's reticence or knowingly ignored it is impossible for her to say".

The "Master of None" star recounted in his statement that he had met the woman at a party, exchanged numbers and started texting back and forth. Grace's account does not necessarily mean that Ansari is no longer the woke bae we thought he was, or that he's no longer qualified to be a dating expert.

In a statement Sunday, Aziz acknowledged the encounter with the woman to Babe. The woman said she was repeatedly "pressured" by Ansari to engage in sexual activity, which they did not, and perform oral intercourse, which she agreed to do.

Banfield continued: 'What you have done in my opinion is appalling.

"Being pushy during a consensual encounter is not the same thing as sexual assault", one person asserted.

"When Ansari told her he was going to grab a condom within minutes of their first kiss", the reporter Katie Way writes, "Grace voiced her hesitation explicitly".

"I cried the whole ride home", said the woman.

HLN host, Ashleigh Banfield, touched on the subject during the segment of Crime and Punishment, stating that the women's claims were "reckless" and that "Grace" was describing what looked to be a "bad date".

In fact, much of "Master of None" is about Ansari's character, Dev, realizing that a woman's walk through the world is different and more unsafe than a man's.

"You had an unpleasant date", she added.

In the end, Wendy revealed that she is on Ansari's side, after she slammed the anonymous accuser.

Ansari wanted to have sex. I know trauma is relative, but I would gladly take Grace's worst night over my own (many) worst nights, several of which ended with broken teeth and/or bones.

Grace describes how she met Ansari at an Emmy Awards after-party in the fall of 2017 and agreed to a date in NY after a week of flirtatious conversation over text.

Aziz Ansari poses with the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy for "Master of None" at the 75th Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles January 7, 2018.

"As one commenter named Leslie Kramer wrote on the Times piece, she and her teen daughter initially had very different take on the situation than her teen daughter - and her first reaction sounded a lot like Weiss"; upon reading the babe piece, she quickly understood that the problem was much more grand than Bari Weiss had painted - one that can be fixed by women simply "communicating".

"The next day, I got a text from her saying that although 'it may have seemed OK, ' upon further reflection, she felt uncomfortable", the Parks and Recreation alum continued.

Writer David Klion reflected on Twitter that most men have probably "at some point in their lives, to some degree behaved in ways they can recognize as uncomfortably close to that Ansari story".
