Let’s just take a little break from celebrating people who hurt women,” the actress told the Yahoo News show “Through Her Eyes” about the #MeToo movement and the possibility of redemption for celebrities.
Pete Davidson isn't one of the comedians supporting Louis C.K. as he tries to make a comeback.
Louis C.K., Matt Lauer, and Aziz Ansari — three stars who have grappled with sexual misconduct scandals — reemerged within days of each other, perhaps with the hope of putting #MeToo allegations in the rearview mirror.
Ansari was accused of sexual misconduct in January by an anonymous woman claiming the comedian pressured her sexually during a date.
Aziz Ansari all but disappeared after being accused of sexual misconduct in January, but he's slowly edging back out into the spotlight.

It’s a common piece of advice in English-professor, author, and scriptwriter circles, and after binge-watching the brilliant second season of Master of None and doing a little digging, we can see that it is clearly a nugget of wisdom that creators Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang heed often. From hiring Ansari’s mom and dad to play his screen parents and crafting storylines around growing up Muslim or learning how to make pasta in Italy, where Ansari lived for months, to shooting in restaurants you can book on OpenTable and parodying actual TV shows, Master of None is clearly (albeit loosely) steeped in truth and personal experience. Here are all the times when real life — be it that of Ansari, Yang, Eric “Arnold” Wareheim, or one of the other writers or actors from the Netflix series — was mined for material for Season 2.
Aziz Ansari explains how Kanye West picks vintage luggage and how it felt when Ansari, "an Indian kid" from South Carolina, ended up in a major Kanye and Jay Z video.

It’s filmmaking — as opposed to TV-making — that seems to inspire Ansari.
