Amy Schumer Comments on 'Friend' Aziz Ansari's Misconduct Allegations

Amy Schumer spoke about the accusations against Aziz Ansari and the #MeToo movement while making an appearance on The Katie Couric Podcast.

“I don’t think anyone wants to see Aziz‘s career ruined or his life ruined or anything like that, but that’s where people’s minds go,” Amy said on the podcast. “They go, ‘Does he deserve this?’ And it’s really not about that. I think it’s about expressing and showing women that that behavior is not okay and not only can you leave, but you need to leave. Because then the women who come after you, you’re leaving a mark for them too.”

“He’s been my friend and I really feel for the woman. I identify with all the women in these situations. Even if it’s my friend, I don’t go, ‘Oh, but he’s a good guy.’ I think, ‘What would it feel like to have been her?’” she later said.

If you don’t know, Aziz responded to the sexual misconduct allegations after they came to light.
