"The worst night of my life".

". Ansari has not yet responded to the claims against him.

After Harvey Weinstein, Golden Globe Award-winning comedian and writer Aziz Ansari, who is popularly known for his role in Master of None, has been accused of sexual assault by a woman when she reportedly went on a date with him a year ago.

The 23-year-old revealed that she met the actor at the 2017 Emmy Awards after-party and later went on a date with him.

She says Ansari continued to push himself on her.

"Like, he got the cheque and then it was bada-boom, bada-bing, we're out of there", she told Babe. "You had to have noticed I was uncomfortable".

Authorities were concerned the ship could explode and sink but there was no word on Saturday on such a possibility. Iranian officials now say all 32 crew members - 30 Iranians and two Bangladeshis - on the tanker are dead.

The alleged victim says she used "verbal and non-verbal cues" to indicate her distress and lack of consent, and that she even turned stiff at one point to indicate her displeasure at his Ansari's alleged advances. The woman said the date began normally, with dinner at an outdoor oyster bar, but when they went to Ansari's apartment afterward, things quickly escalated to a point of discomfort.

Aziz apologised for misreading things. She describes how Ansari allegedly kept persisting in his attempts to have sex with her, "going to grab a condom within minutes of their first kiss" and sticking his fingers down her throat before performing a sex act on her. "'I said something like, 'Whoa, let's relax for a sec, let's chill".

Aziz Ansari has been accused by an anonymous woman of pressuring her to perform oral sex on him. She did, but not for long.

In a cellphone screenshot obtained by Babe, Ansari allegedly texted the woman the next day to thank her for the "fun" evening. "Last night might've been fun for you, but it wasn't for me". Verbally, in that moment, he acknowledged that I needed to take it slow. "I think that started a new fire, and it kind of made it more real". "He said, 'Oh, of course, it's only fun if we're both having fun.' The response was technically very sweet and acknowledging the fact that I was very uncomfortable". You were putting my hand on your d**k continuously. She told him that she didn't want to feel "forced", or she would "hate" him. Ansari purportedly replied, "Clearly, I misread things in the moment and I'm truly sorry".

Aziz Ansari has yet to respond to the accusations.
