George Takei, the Star Trek star, is once again under fire for actions he may or may not have taken towards a man who is accusing him of sexual assault from 40 years ago. Takei seems to love to play both sides of the moral field when it comes to others being accused of the same crime, but he never quite reaches his full potential of hiding his hypocrisy.
Takei, who is now 80, says that he takes Brunton’s accusations “very seriously,” but “right now it is a he said/he said situation, over alleged events nearly 40 years ago.”
“But those that know me understand that non-consensual acts are so antithetical to my values and my practices,” Takei added, “the very idea that someone would accuse me of this is quite personally painful.”
Takei has even accused Russian bots of attacking his Twitter account by spreading the “false” story of Scott Burtons accusations. The accusations however are quite real, and there is no evidence of Russian hacking. Ironically, Takei is the very one and the same that gave Trump hell when he was accused by multiple women of sexual assault during the 2016 election campaign. Takei has also come out harshly against Kevin Spacey for using the “gay card” to clear away his own guilt of being accused of being a pedophile.
What makes Takei’s claims of being oh so moral are the many times and many years that he has been seen doing less than moral things on national television.
Like the time he was filmed groping the exposed genitals of a naked man on the Howard Stern show.
Check out the full accusations of Scott Brunton below:
According to the NY Daily News :
George Takei had an out-of-this-world explanation for why so many people were talking about the sexual assault claim against him.
In a now-deleted tweet, the “Star Trek” actor blamed Russian bots for spreading the story after Scott Brunton, an ex-model and actor, accused Takei of groping him in his Los Angeles condo in 1981.
The tweet, credited to SecuringDemocracy.org, showed Russian bot activity over the last 48 hours.
“Takei” had increased in popularity almost 20,000% and “George Takei” had jumped by more than 15,000%.
“It’s clear they want to cow me into silence, but do not fear, friends. I won’t succumb to that,” Takei wrote.
“By way of background, when I criticized Putin’s anti-LGBT policies publicly, Russian bots attacked my FB page relentlessly, and we had to develop special security measures and ban all traffic from within the Russian Federation and the Ukraine. I am accustomed to their practices.”
Brunton told the Hollywood Reporter that he became friends with Takei when he was 23 and the actor was in his mid-40s.
The two met for dinner one night and then went back to Takei’s condo where Brunton had two drinks and began to feel dizzy.
“I thought I was going to pass out. I said I need to sit down and he said sit over here and he had the giant yellow beanbag chair,” said Brunton, who said that he believes he passed out for a few minutes.
“The next thing I remember I was coming to and he had my pants down around my ankles and he was groping my crotch and trying to get my underwear off and feeling me up at the same time, trying to get his hands down my underwear.”
Takei denied the allegations.
“I want to assure you all that I am as shocked and bewildered at these claims as you must feel reading them,” he tweeted Saturday.
“The events he describes back in the 1980s simply did not occur, and I do not know why he has claimed them now. I have wracked my brain to ask if I remember Mr. Brunton, and I cannot say I do.”
He also called it a “he said/he said situation” that took place almost 40 years ago.

Takei’s accuser, Scott R. Brunton, said the incident occurred in 1981 when he was beginning his career in Hollywood.
“This happened a long time ago, but I have never forgotten it,” Brunton 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,” Brunton said. “I have been telling it for years, but I am suddenly very nervous telling it.”
Brunton, who was 23 years old at the time, said he met Takei, who was “43 or 44” years old, at a bar and the two reportedly exchanged numbers, talked on occasion and saw one another at clubs.
After Brunton broke up with his then-boyfriend, he said that Takei invited him to dinner and the theater.
“He was very good at consoling me and understanding that I was upset and still in love with my boyfriend,” Brunton said. “He was a great ear. He was very good about me spilling my heart on my sleeve.”
However, that same night, the two men went to Takei’s condo for a drink. After the first drink, Brunton agreed to another.
“So, I have the second one, and then all of a sudden, I begin feeling very disoriented and dizzy,” he recalled. “I thought I was going to pass out.”
Takei directed him to a “giant yellow beanbag chair” in which Brunton sat and “must have passed out.”
“I came to and said, ‘What are you doing?!’ I said, ‘I don’t want to do this,’” Brunton recalled.
Takei reportedly told him he needed “to relax” and that he was just trying to make Brunton “comfortable.”
“I managed to get my pants up and compose myself and I was just shocked,” Brunton said. “I walked out and went to my car until I felt well enough to drive home, and that was that.”
Brunton said he never came forward with the story because he thought that no one would believe his allegations.
After all these years, Brunton was compelled to go public with his claim after Takei, an LGBT advocate, responded to allegations against Kevin Spacey.
After Spacey was accused of sexual assault by actor Anthony Rapp, he subsequently apologized and came out as gay. Takei took issue with Spacey’s tactic, telling The Hollywood Reporter that Spacey’s move was a “deflection” from the situation.
“When power is used in a non-consensual situation, it is a wrong,” Takei had said. “For Anthony Rapp, he has had to live with the memory of this experience of decades ago. For Kevin Spacey, who claims not to remember the incident, he was the older, dominant one who had his way.”
Takei said that men who “improperly harass or assault” do not do so “because they are gay or straight — that is a deflection. They do so because they have the power, and they chose to abuse it.”
Brunton said that he does not want anything from Takei “but an apology,” yet he expects him to “disown all this.”
Despite corroboration of Brunton’s story by four of his friends, Takei has denied the allegations.
George Takei is the furthest thing from the morally collected human being he tries to claim to be, and it is really not that far fetched for him to become the newest predator exposed in the collective Hollywood sicko club. These Hollywood elites need to be shut down. Their entire existence revolves around disgusting acts of sexual deviance and it is becoming quite evident that not too many of them will come out of this exposure trend as clean individuals.
