Last year, Aziz Ansari found his career and personal life rocked by allegations of sexual misconduct. For some, the accusation served as a warranted condemnation, while others questioned the rush to decry Ansari for a regretful, but ultimately consensual, encounter. As a socially progressive comedian who frequently focuses on the evolving standards of dating in the age of social media (both in his co-authored bestselling book, Modern Romance, and on his Emmy-winning series, Master of None), Ansari faced scrutiny as pundits lined up to lament that even advocates of equality can have bad judgement. Considering the introspective nature of Ansari’s comedy, it seems certain that he will continue to reflect on the event in his work. Reviews of his most recent appearances suggest that his observations remain hilariously astute, even as his once rosy view of social media seems to have darkened.
