Captain Kirk, you may need to beam up your friend George, he has an angry mob ready to torch him out of existence. Recently, rumors of yet another Hollywood sexual assault spread across the internet when Scott R. Brunton, a former actor and model, claimed in an interview that Takei took advantage of him when he was drunk.
“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. I came to and said, ‘What are you doing?!’ I said, ‘I don’t want to do this.’ He goes, ‘You need to relax. I am just trying to make you comfortable. Get comfortable.’ And I said, ‘No. I don’t want to do this.’ And I pushed him off and he said, ‘OK, fine.’ And I said I am going to go and he said, ‘If you feel you must. You’re in no condition to drive.’ I said, ‘I don’t care I want to go.’ So I managed to get my pants up and compose myself and I was just shocked. I walked out and went to my car until I felt well enough to drive home, and that was that.”
At this point, I personally wouldn’t put anything past anyone right now. Hollywood is draining it’s own swamp, and it seems those accused are guilty until proven innocent. Georage Takei took to social media in attempt to defend his honor, and his fans responded by crossing their fingers and begging for this to be the truth.
I’m writing to respond to the accusations made by Scott R. Brunton. I want to assure you all that I am as shocked and bewildered at these claims as you must feel reading them.
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. But I do take these claims very seriously, and I wanted to provide my response thoughtfully and not out of the moment.
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, the very idea that someone would accuse me of this is quite personally painful.
Brad, who is 100 percent beside me on this, as my life partner of more than 30 years and now my husband, stands fully by my side. I cannot tell you how vital it has been to have his unwavering support and love in these difficult times.
Thanks to many of you for all the kind words and trust. It means so much to us.
Yours in gratitude,
It was a long time ago… I don’t remember… I’m gay…
Of course, we already knew about his sexual preferences, but it’s Kevin Spacey all over again with these same excuses. I can’t say for 100% certainty that George is actually guilty, but he’s using a lot of the same arguing points that Spacey did when he “apologized”, and it’s understandable that anyone would be suspicious. Whether these accusations are some kind of hoax, or he legitimately crossed the line, George Takei will forever have this stain on his name. No amount of saving the galaxy from evil Klingon’s can change that.
