BREAKING: George Takei Latest Star to Face Sex Assault Allegations

The parade of liberal Hollywood luminaries being slammed with charges of sexual misconduct continues.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Scott R. Brunton has publicly accused “Star Trek” star — and pretentious liberal scold who uses his status as both a gay man and a victim of World War II Japanese interment as dual sources of supreme moral authority — George Takei of unwanted groping back in 1981, when Takei was in his early forties and Brunton was a 23-year-old waiter trying to make a career in acting and modeling.

“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 told THR. “I have been telling it for years, but I am suddenly very nervous telling it.”

Brunton says that several months after meeting Takei and talking with each other socially on a number of occasions, they met after the former broke up with his boyfriend. Takei was “very good at consoling me and understanding that I was upset and still in love with my boyfriend” and letting “me spilling my heart on my sleeve,” Brunton says, but things soon took a turn for the worse:

The two men went back to the actor’s condo for a drink the same night. “We have the drink and he asks if I would like another,” Brunton recalls. “And I said sure. So, I have the second one, and then all of a sudden, I begin feeling very disoriented and dizzy, and 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. So I sat down in that and leaned my head back and I must have passed out.”

“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,” Brunton says. “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.”

THR reports that four of the accuser’s “longtime friends” have corroborated that he told them about the incident over the years. According to Brunton, he stayed silent for so long because he doubted anyone would take him seriously … but that all changed after the allegations against mega mogul Harvey Weinstein opened the floodgates.

Another factor behind his change of heart, he says, is outrage at Takei posing as a moral authority in reaction to Kevin Spacey’s fall from grace and attempt to deflect by coming out of the closet. “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,” Takei said … while, allegedly, having once abused that power himself.

Takei representative Julia Buchwald responded to THR by simply saying, “George is traveling in Japan and Australia and not reachable for comment.” Well, THR tweeted out the story two hours ago as of the time I’m writing this, and Takei’s most recent tweet was one hour ago, so it’s pretty safe to say he’s seen the story and could respond if he really wanted to.

Of course, these allegations are hardly proven, but they’re definitely disturbing, not to mention ironic. Stay tuned for further developments.
