Despite an ongoing MeToo drip, "Grace" anonymously accuses Aziz, in an opportunistic time - alleging "sexual assault." However, even her own account, which could be exaggerated, is by no means sexual assault, and has been widely ridiculed as a "bad date" by the most staunch feminists and liberal outlets. The same women, who defend women's rights with their platforms, promoting the movement, say not only is this far from sexual assault, it is intended to defame an actor and is harming the movement, feminism, and ruining the outcomes for real victims to be heard.
From MSNBC, NYT, Bustle, the Guardian, Huffpost, CNN, TMZ, EW, HollywoodLife, feminist blogs, etc -- it has been said the story should have never been aired and that Babe was out of line for publishing it, as there is no basis to ruin Aziz's career when Grace was fully empowered to say "no". By her own account, she never directly said "no", but confused Aziz by remaining naked for over 2 hours and performing oral sex on him twice. Though she regrets it all after the fact, there is no reason Aziz should suffer for something he genuinely did not know, and had apologized for, immediately upon learning.
There is no proof of any intent for him to assault her or force her into anything. Firing Aziz, will only demoralize many, harm society, especially as it is not common for a short South Asian muslim man to be as recognized in the industry. Companies that want him to do their commercials, should feel confident to do so, as what Cathy Flannagan of The Atlantic calls "3000 words of Revenge Porn", should not be allowed ruin a career.
