George Takei Has Been Accused of Sexually Assaulting a Male Model

A former model has spoken to The Hollywood Reporter about an incident that took place back in 1981 between him and Star Trek star George TakeiScott R. Brunton told a story about how the current Howard Stern mainstay groped him at his Los Angeles condo.

"This happened a long time ago, but I have never forgotten it," Scott told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview. "It is one of those stories you tell with a group of people when people are recounting bizarre instances in their lives, this always comes up. I have been telling it for years, but I am suddenly very nervous telling it."

The story alleges that Scott was an up and coming actor and model who met George at a place called Greg's Blue Dot Bar.  The two became close, and one night Scott went back to George's condo where he alleges that the Star Trek actor got him drunk and he became very disoriented.  When he came to his senses, he claims that George was trying to get in his pants, which he did not want, and then he left the condo as soon as possible.

The Hollywood Reporter spoke to four of Scott's closest friends who said they had confided in him about Takei's actions.

Although George's rep said he had no comment originally, last night he took to his Twitter to deny the allegations that Scott has made against him.

Just because someone accuses someone does not mean it’s true. There are people who will say anything to get attention.  Why would you go to someone’s room from a bar alone if you weren’t expecting something to happen and then talk about it forty years later? Smells like a fish tale.

I see this as an overdue cleansing of that festering wound wherein people in positions of power (usually men) have thought it their right to impose themselves on people over whom they wield that power.  The downside is that people are going back decades risks basing some of these accusations on badly distorted memories.  Once this cleansing process runs its course, I am hopeful that there's a shift in values so that this sort of stuff becomes much less frequent than it used to be, that people become educated about consent when they are children, and that, when it happens, victims come forward much more quickly than before.

Maybe he thinks he really is Mr. Sulu back on the Enterprise groping crewmen.

Sad to see men make these accusations in some twist of trying to be equal with women. The only difference is is that the men who are making the accusations are still accusing other men and not women. And so it can be still be said men objectify others and it needs to stop. So if ppl want to make these complaints and be united in their oppression then fine but somehow i dont see these men accusers standing by women as a #metoo but as an obstruction to women and to take the spotlight off the victimizers and fixate it on the gender of the victims themselves. Who cares unless youre trying to be special!! Which still proves the point men LIKE to objectify and be objectified by other men! And do this bc they deeply wish women would value the body over the mind! It has never worked and never will. Thank GOD that a woman would never love you solely for your penis! And if you would have this, you just want envy to reinforce your belief in superiority and inequality!
