Aziz faces allegations

ACTOR and comedian Aziz Ansari has been accused of sexual misconduct by a woman who said she is speaking up because she resents him wearing a "Time's Up" pin at the Golden Globe Awards, according to reports in Babe and TMZ.

The still unnamed woman - who produced text messages between her and the 34-year-old actor - claims she went on a date with Ansari last year and ended up in his Tribeca, New York City apartment.

The woman, who said she was 22 at the time, claims he kissed and fondled her before undressing her and then went in search of a condom.

She claimed she got cold feet and asked him to slow down. But, she said, he didn't listen and then forcibly performed oral sex on her.

The woman said he started sticking his fingers in her throat and she used "verbal and non-verbal cues" to indicate her discomfort.

She said she left the apartment in tears and texted Ansari the next day.

TMZ posted a screenshot of the text messages on its website and said the woman decided to speak up after she saw the comedian wearing a "Time's Up" pin on his tuxedo while attending last week's Golden Globes.

Ansari has not commented on the allegations.
