Aziz Ansari’s co-actor and comedian Amy Schumer says that she does not want his career to be ruined but believes that his behavior was ‘unacceptable’.

“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,” the comedian said on Thursday.

“He probably moved my hand to his d–k five to seven times. He really kept doing it after I moved it away”, the girl added. However, Ansari responded that according to him the advances between them were consensual.

“They go ‘does he deserve this?’ and it’s really not about that. I think it’s about expressing and showing women that that behaviour is not okay and not only can you leave, but you need to leave. Because then the women who come after you, you’re leaving a mark for them too.”

She said women must know their boundaries and have the courage to walk out of the situation if they feel threatened and uncomfortable.

“If you don’t really lay your boundaries out, then you’re leaving it open for the women who come after you. So I think a lot of women feel really bad that they’ve been complicit in things, but we didn’t know to be. And I think now there’s kind of no excuse,” Schumer said on a podcast.

“And if you have a doctor that makes you uncomfortable or you get a massage or you have a date with someone and they coerce you in a situation like the Aziz one, I don’t think there’s any sort of criminal charge, but I think that it’s good for everybody to learn that that behavior’s not acceptable. It’s not a crime, but it’s not cool. It can still really mess with a woman,” she added further.

The girl described that they both met in September at the after-party of Emmy Awards. She claims that Ansari forced her to move things forward despite her refusal. She also showed her conversation with him after the incident.

“The next day, I got a text from her saying that although ‘it may have seemed okay,’ upon further reflection, she felt uncomfortable. It was true that everything did seem okay to me, so when I heard that it was not the case for her, I was surprised and concerned. I took her words to heart and responded privately after taking the time to process what she had said,” he said.

He further said that he supports the movement against harassment going on in the society.
