In\u00a0his new Netflix special Right Now, comedian Aziz Ansari addresses the\u00a0sexual misconduct allegations published by the now defunct site Babe.net article in 2018. In the Babe.net story,\u00a0a woman accused Ansari of trying to pressure her into sex while on a date. Ansari opened his set with a joke about how he gets confused with Patriot Act host Hasan Minhaj. He then took a more somber approach when addressing the allegations the woman made against him\u00a018 months ago. \u201cYou know, I haven\u2019t said much about that whole thing, but I\u2019ve talked about it on this tour, 'cause you\u2019re here and it means a lot to me,\u201d Ansari said, according to the Washington Post. \u201cAnd I\u2019m sure a lot of you are curious how I feel about that whole situation. And, uh, it\u2019s a tricky thing for me to answer, 'cause I\u2019ve felt so many things in the last year, so. There\u2019s times I\u2019ve felt scared. There\u2019s times I\u2019ve felt humiliated. There\u2019s times I\u2019ve felt embarrassed. And ultimately, I just felt terrible that this person felt this way.\u201d Ansari added that his situation prompted\u00a0at least one person close to him to reexamine their conduct while dating. \u201cI always think about a conversation I had with one of my friends where he was, like: \u2018You know what man? That whole thing made me think about every date I\u2019ve ever been on.\u2019 And I thought: \u2018Wow. Well, that\u2019s pretty incredible," Ansari told the crowd. "It\u2019s made not just me but other people be more thoughtful, and that\u2019s a good thing.\u2019 And that\u2019s how I feel about it. And I know this isn\u2019t the most hilarious way to begin a comedy show. But it\u2019s important to me that you know how I feel about that whole thing before we share this night together." Ansari then put a button on the issue by concluding: \u201cWell, that was pretty intense. What else shall we talk about?\u201d In February, Vulture editor Jesse David Fox attended one of Ansari's standup spots in New York City where Ansari was workshopping the intro which eventually made it onto Right Now. Although the show in February appears to be the first time Ansari addressed the Babe.net story in public, the special marks the first time he formally addressed it on camera.
