Pulitzer Prize-winning author Junot Diaz is now speaking up about the sexual misconduct allegations levelled against him. 

In a fresh new take on the case, Diaz denies all accusations from women who claimed that he behaved inappropriately. He said, it doesn't sound "like anything that's in my life, anything that's me."

Among the allegations, author Zinzi Clemmons and other female writers recently shared stories of Diaz's behavior. Clemmons said that Diaz forcibly kissed her several years ago while others cited instances when they felt he had verbally attacked them. 

Diaz, meanwhile, said he takes responsibility for his past actions.

Currently, Diaz is busy with teaching at the Massachusetts institute of Technology and Boston Review following separate investigations into wrongdoing.
