Aziz Ansari, better known as Tom Haverford on one of my favorite TV shows of all time, Parks and Recreation, is a creep. And not just any kind of creep, he’s a sexual predator creep who’s like Harvey Weinstein more than he’s not.
That’s right. I’m comparing Aziz Ansari to Harvey Weinstein.
Aziz Ansari met the then 22-year-old woman at a 2017 Emmy Awards after-party. The two began talking because both were using 1980’s film-based cameras. A week after they met, they went on the date.
The date went pretty terrible. According to the woman who wrote about the date on babe.net, Ansari got overly sexually aggressive fairly quickly. After eating at an oyster bar on a historic wooden ship on the Hudson River, the two went back to his apartment two blocks away.
They walked the two blocks back to his apartment building, an exclusive address on TriBeCa’s Franklin Street, where Taylor Swift has a place too. When they walked back in, she complimented his marble countertops. According to Grace, Ansari turned the compliment into an invitation.
“He said something along the lines of, ‘How about you hop up and take a seat?’” Within moments, he was kissing her. “In a second, his hand was on my breast.” Then he was undressing her, then he undressed himself. She remembers feeling uncomfortable at how quickly things escalated.
When Ansari told her he was going to grab a condom within minutes of their first kiss, Grace voiced her hesitation explicitly. “I said something like, ‘Whoa, let’s relax for a sec, let’s chill.’” She says he then resumed kissing her, briefly performed oral sex on her, and asked her to do the same thing to him. She did, but not for long. “It was really quick. Everything was pretty much touched and done within ten minutes of hooking up, except for actual sex.”
She says Ansari began making a move on her that he repeated during their encounter. “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 the moment he’d stick his fingers in my throat he’d go straight for my vagina and try to finger me.” Grace called the move “the claw.”
Ansari also physically pulled her hand towards his penis multiple times throughout the night, from the time he first kissed her on the countertop onward. “He probably moved my hand to his dick five to seven times,” she said. “He really kept doing it after I moved it away.”
But the main thing was that he wouldn’t let her move away from him. She compared the path they cut across his apartment to a football play. “It was 30 minutes of me getting up and moving and him following and sticking his fingers down my throat again. It was really repetitive. It felt like a fucking game.”
This “date” took place in 2017. So why is the victim of Aziz Ansari’s creepiness writing about this now?
Because of this photo from the very recent 2018 Golden Globes:
Aziz Ansari is wearing one of those pretentious #TimesUp pins on his lapel to show how much he’s against sexual harassment. As if you aren’t wearing one of these pins, you’re somehow for the sexual harassment of women. I’d never trust a man wearing one of these #TimesUp pins, just like I’d never trust a male feminist.
Like everyone else in attendance, Aziz Ansari was wearing black. Wearing all black at the 2018 Golden Globes showed you are against sexual harassment in Hollywood. Sure.
This is after he was chasing a woman around his apartment he barely knew trying to do the sexual version of the mandible claw on her.
Aziz Ansari just assumed the young woman would be into whatever he wanted to do sexually because of who he is. He’s a famous sitcom actor and a standup comedian. He’s famous and his date was not. In Aziz Ansari’s relationship with the young woman, he was in the position of power and she was not. Of course, he can stick his fingers down her throat so that he can more easily stick them in her vagina.
What would you expect someone like him to do first, ask?
Aziz Ansari is not an attractive guy. He’s not the kind of guy who would normally have unfamiliar women wanting to have marble countertop sex with him on a first date. Aziz Ansari used his fame to be a predator with women. The same can be said for Harvey Weinstein. Harvey Weinstein is not an attractive man. He used his fame and power to be a predator with women.
Aziz Ansari and Harvey Weinstein. Two creeps cut from the same unattractive bolt of predator cloth.
