As we reported, in January, a woman with the pseudonym of "Grace" spoke to babe about an incident involving Aziz Ansari which she calls "the worst experience with a man [she has] ever had." Specifically, the photographer accused the actor of pressuring her into performing several sexual acts even though she "was physically giving off cues that [she] wasn't interested."

No one criticizes Ashleigh Banfield's "burgundy lipstick" and gets away with it!

As we reported on Monday, the host of Crime & Justice RIPPED into babe's Aziz Ansari sexual misconduct piece, saying the anonymous accuser — known simply as "Grace" — is actually hurting the Time's Up and #MeToo movements with her accusations.

Apparently, a producer tried to get the writer of the controversial story, Katie Way, on the HLN show, but they apparently received a vicious, insulting email in return!

On Tuesday's episode, the anchor actually reads part of Way's reported email to paint a picture of the kind of person she is. Banfield recites:

"Ashleigh, someone who I am certain nobody under the age of 45 has heard of, I hope the 500 retweets on the single news write up made that burgundy lipstick, bad highlights, secondwave feminist has-been really relevant for a little while."

The 50-year-old then SLAMS the babe reporter for the below the belt jabs:

"The reason I want to share that is because if you truly believe in the #MeToo movement, if you truly believe in women's rights, if you truly believe in feminism, the last thing you should do is attack someone in an ad hominem way for her age, I'm 50, and for my highlights… We do not attack people for their age, or their highlights or their lipstick because it is the most hypocritical thing a woman who says she supports the women's movement could ever do and that's the caliber of the woman who was given all of this power and was able to wield this power."

On Monday, the comedian released a statement labeling the encounter as "completely consensual."

That same day, the host of HLN's Crime & Justice is calling BS on Grace's story, and believes she is actually hurting the #MeToo and Time's Up movements.

Banfield exclaimed during a segment:

"By your own clear description, this wasn't a rape, nor was it a sexual assault. By your description, your sexual encounter was unpleasant… You have chiseled away at a movement that I, along with all of my sisters in the workplace, have been dreaming of for decades. A movement that has finally changed an oversexed professional environment that I, too, have struggled through at times over the last 30 years in broadcasting… The #MeToo movement has righted a lot of wrongs and it has made your career path much smoother… What a gift. Yet, you looked that gift horse in the mouth and chiseled away at that powerful movement with your public accusation."
