Aziz Ansari steps out with his new girlfriend Serena Campbell for the first time since Ansari was hit with sexual misconduct allegations during the #MeToo movement. The 35-year-old comedian has been quiet since an article at babe.net alleged Ansari had sexually violated a girl. Ansari disappeared for about four months before he started to drop by comedy clubs to work out his new routine.
Serena Campbell, 29, is from Denmark but made London her home for the last 10 years. She attends London’s King’s College where she studying for a Ph.D. in plasmonics, the study of electromagnetic fields.
The two were seen out and having a good time at the US Open on Sunday at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York. The two were smiling and seemed very comfortable together.
Serena Campbell’s mother Kirsten confirmed to DailyMail.com that it was indeed her daughter. “Yes it is my daughter, but I don’t want to say anymore.”
Ansari who just recently started touring with his new standup act does not mention the controversy that surrounded him. He does talk about how he is dating a white girl scientist and how people look at them weird for being in an interracial couple. The white girl he mentions in his routine has been now identified as Serena Campbell.
When the story on babe.net hit, many women came out to say that what happened with Ansari and the woman was not sexual assault. The woman thought it cheapened the #MeToo movement.
While others believed that Ansari had gone too far. They believed that the signs were clear the woman did not want to have sex. In the article, Ansari continued to liquor her up and kept pressuring her to have sex. They believe Ansari was relentless in his pursuit to have sex with the girl and he should have known better by the verbal and non-verbal cues she was giving him.
The way I see it is that Ansari did not engage in anything illegal but he did act inappropriately. Repeatedly jamming her fingers down her throat then badgering her to have sex does not seem like the kind of guy Ansari projected onto the world. He used sleazy PUA techniques that his public persona probably would have condemned. But she could have left and she should have left. The problem was that Ansari wanted sex that night while the woman wanted a relationship. Considering that both got neither I give them both a L for that awkward night.
The bigger question is damn Aziz another white girl? I know in your act that you say you get a lot of crap for dating people outside your race but I didn’t see that unless you count critics of “Master Of None.” The muse wrote about how Brown men fall in love with white women and QZ wrote a similar article.
I haven’t really followed Aziz until the whole #MeToo thing but people I know that do follow celebrity lives tells me Ansari’s thing is only white girls. So are the critics right that you put white woman on a pedestal? I can’t say that Aziz is a white worshipper like Jenny Han but Aziz you sure do like them white girls. There’s nothing wrong with that but is having a racial preference a fetish? If it’s okay to call out people who have a black fetish or Asian fetish it should be okay to call out people that have a white fetish. I don’t really care if anyone has a racial fetish or not but are the critics right? So what do you all think. Is Aziz a white worshipper?
