Netflix Wants Aziz Ansari Back Following Misconduct Allegations


Business Insider reports that Netflix has said that it is "ready" for Aziz Ansari to go back to making shows for the streaming service. This after the comedian has spent months laying low. Ansari was accused of sexual misconduct. He has not produced any new content for his award-winning show "Master of None" since an anonymous woman who went on a date with Ansari said he forced himself on her. This despite numerous "cues" that she "wasn't interested." The article was published on millennial women's site Babe.net. It sparked an online firestorm, with many people questioning whether the situation the woman described really amounted to anything abusive. Ansari has largely laid low since the article. He did respond to it with a statement that everything between the two of them had been "consensual."
