Riz & Himanshu are you sure all of your behaviour in the past has been acceptable?
- Actor Riz Ahmed and fellow rapper Himanshu Suri of Das Racist and Sweat Shop Boys fame are the latest to be accused of sexual assault.
- Reportedly a woman claims that Himanshu Suri, among other things, groped her. He was informed of this in a Reddit AMA several years ago, and said he wanted to apologize to her. Her posts have since been deleted but the responses are still there.
