The 23-year-old Brooklyn woman, identified only as Grace, told Babe that she met Ansari at an after-party in Los Angeles in September.
A rep for Ansari did not immediately return a request for comment, but later issued a statement confirming the encounter.
A week after the Emmys, where Ansari won for outstanding writing, Grace claims she and Ansari went on a date in Manhattan. After dinner at an oyster bar, she said they went back to his Tribeca apartment.
“In a second, his hand was on my breast,” Grace told Babe.
In graphic detail, she described the alleged encounter, which she claims included oral sex and digital penetration.
“He probably moved my hand to his d — k five to seven times,” she said. “He really kept doing it after I moved it away.”
Grace also claimed that he pressured her into giving him oral sex. She finally left after more “gross, forceful kisses.”
“I know I was physically giving off cues that I wasn’t interested,” she told Babe.
“I don’t think that was noticed at all, or if it was, it was ignored.”
In a screenshot of text messages allegedly sent between the two, Ansari texted Grace about their “fun” night. In her response, she told him that she felt “uncomfortable” and “uneasy.”
Ansari reportedly apologized.
“All I can say is, it would never be my intention to make you or anyone feel the way you described,” he allegedly texted her back.
“Clearly, I misread things in the moment and I’m truly sorry,” Ansari’s alleged text said.
Grace said that she was encouraged to come forward after seeing Ansari wearing a Time’s Up pin at the Golden Globes earlier in the month.
The pin, worn by many men at the annual awards show, represented support of the initiative launched by more than 300 actresses that aims to fight sexual harassment and assault in the workplace.
Ansari seemingly admitted to the encounter in a statement in which he confirmed some of “Grace’s” details.
“The next day, I got a text from her saying that although “it may have seemed okay,” upon further reflection, she felt uncomfortable. It was true that everything did seem okay to me, so when I heard that it was not the case for her, I was surprised and concerned. I took her words to heart and responded privately after taking the time to process what she had said,” he said in the statement.
“I continue to support the movement that is happening in our culture. It is necessary and long overdue.”
A season one episode of “Master of None,” “Ladies and Gentlemen,” takes on sexism and sexual harassment.
“If you are born with a vagina, everybody knows creepy dudes are just a part of the deal,” Denise (Lena Waithe) says in the episode.
Ansari, who has frequently referred to himself as a feminist, said the stories in the episode were all based on true events.
“The seed of that episode came from a bit during my Madison Square Garden special where I’d talk about women getting followed home by creepy dudes, and I’d ask during the bit, ‘Raise your hands if you’re a woman and you’ve been followed home,’ and everyone would raise their hand. And then all the other women would look around and go, ‘What the f — k?!’” Ansari told the Daily Beast in 2015.
“Then, I’d ask all the guys if they expected all the women to raise their hands, and none of them really did. They couldn’t believe it. I thought it was interesting that this is happening, yet so many people are unaware of it. And the problem is people aren’t talking about it.”
