Today In Flaming Messes: The Writer Of The Aziz Ansari Story Is Beefing With Ashleigh Banfield Of HLN
Over the weekend, a site called Babe.net (which, contrary to my first guess, isn’t a soft-core porn site devoted to pigs from Australia) posted a piece from a writer named Katie Way about a young woman, going by the name Grace, who went on a shitty date with 34-year-old Aziz Ansari. The date ended with her using a Chore Boy to scrub the thick layer of ICK off of her. Grace, who was 22 at the time, said that Aziz pressured her into having sex even though she let him know with her words and body language that she didn’t want to go there. Allison covered the entire story if you missed it.
Grace’s story brought out many different opinions, of course. Some praised Grace for telling her story since they felt men need to take a crash course at The Learning Annex on How To Fucking Get A Clue. Some felt that Babe.net was shamelessly trying to get clicks by naming Aziz Ansari in a piece that was basically revenge porn. Others felt it was wrong of Babe.net to inject a story about a bad date into the same vein as the #MeToo movement. HLN host Ashleigh Banfield is with the second and third group and she shared her thoughts on her show Crime & Justice.
A producer from Crime & Justice e-mailed Katie Way to invite her to come onto the show. Katie didn’t give a simple “no.” She gave a “no” and followed it with a mega junior high school dragging that I’m surprised didn’t end with her saying, “Oh, and that Ashleigh bitch has totally got split ends. Gross!” Katie made it clear that she will never share screen time with that bad highlights-having, burgundy lipstick-wearing nobody old hag! I know, what did burgundy lipstick do to anybody…besides make them look like a chola vampire (which is always a good thing, by the way)?
