Amy Schumer may call Aziz Ansari her friend, but she doesn't defend his actions.
Last month comedian Aziz Ansari was yet another Hollywood star that was slammed with sexual assault allegations, after a 23-year-old claimed he made unwanted sexual advances.
Going as "Grace" to protect her identity, the Brooklyn-based photographer revealed to the digital publication Babe that once she got to Aziz's home (after a date) he made sexual advances, even after she was very clearly uncomfortable and asked him to slow down. Aziz apparently asked Grace where she wanted him to have sex with her, but she found it hard to answer since that wasn't what she wanted.
“I wasn’t really even thinking of that, I didn’t want to be engaged in that with him," she said. "But he kept asking, so I said, ‘Next time.’ And he goes, ‘Oh, you mean second date?’ and I go, ‘Oh, yeah, sure,’ and he goes, ‘Well, if I poured you another glass of wine now, would it count as our second date?’”
Fellow female comedian, Amy Schumer, recently spoke on the allegations pinned on Aziz where she said that although they are friends, she really feels "for the woman."
"I identify with all the women in these situations. Even if it’s my friend, I don’t go, ‘Oh, but he’s a good guy.’ I think, ‘What would it feel like to have been her?’" she said while chatting with Katie Couric.
“I don’t think anyone wants to see Aziz’s career ruined or his life ruined or anything like that, but that’s where people’s minds go,” she added. “They go, ‘Does he deserve this?’ And it’s really not about that. I think it’s about expressing and showing women that that behavior is not okay and that not only can you leave, but you need to leave.”
The Trainwreck actress further noted how everyone should know that that behaviour is simply not acceptable. “It’s not a crime, but it’s not cool. And it can still really mess with a woman.”
