“We would be happy to make another season of ‘Master of None’ when Aziz is ready,” she said.
Back in January, Ansari was accused of sexual assault by an anonymous woman, who published her tell-all in the women’s lifestyle blog Babe.com.
“I believe that I was taken advantage of by Aziz,” she told Babe. “I was not listened to and ignored. It was, by far, the worst experience with a man I’ve ever had.”
Ansari is hardly the first Netflix star accused of sexual harassment. In October 2017, former “House Of Cards” protagonist Kevin Spacey was accused of sexual assault by several men, some of whom were underage at the time of the alleged incidents. Comedian Louis C.K. also forfeited his stand-up special on Netflix after five women came out against him in November 2017.
