Retta On 'Parks & Recreation' Co-Star Aziz Ansari's Misconduct Allegations: 'I Didn't Appreciate It'

Retta has broken her silence about the accusations made against her former Parks & Recreation co-star Aziz Ansari.

Back in January, a woman claimed she had the “worst night” of her life during a date with Aziz, in which she felt uncomfortable when things escalated quickly at his apartment.

“I feel like a lot of people and a lot of other outlets were like, ‘Why did you even run this story?’” Retta expressed during Day Two of the 2018 Vulture Festival presented By AT&T at Milk Studios on Sunday (May 20) in New York City. “I’m giving my personal opinion, and I don’t want fucking people coming at me. You know what I mean? But I feel like I’ve been on that date so many times. I was like, ‘If you haven’t been on that date twice, are you even living a life?’”

“I’m not going to judge [Grace], because I don’t know her. I know personally—I had this conversation specifically with one of my good girlfriends, and she was like, ‘I don’t know how this is a story. I didn’t get it.’ I don’t want to get into it. I didn’t like it,” Retta added. “Because I’m the first person to be like, ‘Fuck that mother fucker. He’s an asshole. He’s a fucking asshole.’ And I didn’t think he was an asshole and I didn’t appreciate it.”
