Has aziz ever wrote anything even remotely funny? This is going to bomb.

Has Ansari apologized for being a creepy, harassing little shiat? I was in the middle of binge watching Master of None when that news came out and enjoyed the series so far.

If we can get him and Seth to back out, this project stands a chance.

I'd give it a shot. Seth was involved in  preacher and the boys.
/that sounds really bad out of context

*checks notes*
No, no he hasn't, never could stand his little creeper character on Parks and Rec (turns out it wasn't a character, it was him all along), and his "stand up" is devoid of any comedy.

Never seen Parks & Rec but, yeah, never found him to be funny.

The universe's way of saying "do not touch".

Rogen is like Kevin Smith, both of their work got worse when they became obsessed with letting everyone know they love pot.

"moving and clear-eyed look at aging and death in our society, and at the harms we do in turning it into a medical problem, rather than a human one."

Wow, that sounds like fun.

I liked Parks and Rec but his character was annoying af. It's one of those characters who is supposed to be an asshole but if he's like that IRL I wouldn't be able to stand being in the same room with him for very long.

Wow, that's going to be an epic whirlpool of suck never before known to humankind.

I remember reading the story about Aziz, but not many of the details.

Could someone remind me of the creepy part?
 
2022-03-25 10:26:47 AM  
I can't think of anything labeled a comedy/drama that I actually liked.

I read what you posted and it's not even sure what was bad. Half of the sentences are saying how it's not sexual misconduct. The other half is saying sure isn't wasn't sexual assault but he should have asked in a different way.

Like what creepy thing did he do? It doesn't say in this link.

I'll copy pasta what it says.

Media critic Allison Davis, who later interviewed the article's author, Katie Way, called the Babe.net article "some combination of as-told-to and reported piece and morning-after group-chat gossip", saying that it became a "flashpoint of discussion about #MeToo".[70] There was disagreement in media commentary as to whether the incident described in the Babe article constituted sexual misconduct.[71] Some agreed with Ansari, who stated that the encounter "by all indications was completely consensual,"[72] while others stated that his actions were misogynistic, lacked affirmative consent, and spoke to a larger culture of harmful male expectations.[73][74] Others say that Ansari's actions did not constitute sexual misconduct and that his accuser's narrative trivializes the #MeToo movement against forms of sexual abuse.

This doesn't really tell me anything.

Harmful male expectations?  Is the harm he wanted to have sex at all, was it he expected certain sexual acts or asked for them?

This link brought up more questions than it answered.

I'm reading this now. It seems he went on a date with a girl. She went back to his place. They gave each other oral sex. She didn't want to have sex and he did. They didn't have sex, He called her a cab and she left.

Did I leave anything out?   She wanted red wine and he gave her white and made her watch Seinfeld?


My wife's cousin raped one of our friends a couple of weeks after his father's funeral from suicide. I wasn't there, but she thought it would be safe to take a couple of her friends over there and have a couple of drinks. One of them felt tired and went to lay down and she woke up with him on top of her.

Luckily he OD's a few days later and is now dead. I later found out its his thing and he has done it over and over to women. He cannot terrorize woman ever again. Thank you fentanyl.

This story does trivialize actual sexual assault.

They're just old, with tastes that stopped evolving in 1996.

You should maybe look into that more. He had a bad date and a weird little creepy woman wrote about it as if she had been assaulted.

iwas assaulted when i stupidly read the whole account- it was sick graphic, iirc
anyway, this movie sounds like maybe just read the book instead

I don't see any posts on here that makes anyone sound old. Sure, I wish Bill was still funny, like he was 30 years ago but I said I liked Parks and Rec.

At last? Who the hell thought having one of the funniest men of all time in a movie with one the least funny men, would be a good idea?
