Aziz Ansari is facing an allegation of sexual assault, with an anonymous woman claiming that the actor forced himself on her a series of times after a date the two had last year.
The allegations have now cast a long shadow over his Golden Globe-winning Netflix show, Master of None, leaving an uncertain future amid other shows canceled when the stars faced similar allegations.
The allegations against Ansari were published in an account in the publication babe, with the accuser going by the pseudonym Grace. The woman, who was 22 at the time of the incident, claimed she met Ansari after the 2017 Emmy Awards and that the two agreed to go on a date.
She described how the two went to dinner and later to Ansari’s apartment, where she claimed he forcibly kissed her several times and pressured her into oral sex.
