According to Variety, the allegation came from an article, which gave an account of a woman who alleged that she felt pressurised into sexual activity when she went on a date with Ansari.

Ansari addressed the allegation during a show in February this year saying that he needed time to think what he wanted to say as the incident was a "terrifying thing to talk about".

"There were times I felt really upset and humiliated and embarrassed, and ultimately I just felt terrible this person felt this way. But you know, after a year, how I feel about it is, I hope it was a step forward. It made me think about a lot, and I hope I've become a better person," he said during the show.

'Master of None' has aired two seasons to date.
