George Takei Denies Sexual Assault Allegations, Doesn't Remember His Accuser

George Takei is speaking out to deny allegations of sexual assault made against him by former model Scott R. Brunton.

Brunton says the incident happened in 1981, when he and Takei became friends. When he went to the former Star Trek actor’s apartment one night for drinks, he claims he felt dizzy and passed out, later waking up with his pants around his ankles and Takei groping his crotch and trying to get his underwear off.

Takei, an outspoken advocate for the LGBT community throughout the years, denies that the incident ever happened and says he doesn’t remember Mr. Brunton.

“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 wrote in a series of tweets. Read them all below.

    Liar. It took him 11 plus hours to respond…this guy is normally very active on social media..he was even trending on Twitter ever since..don’t you tell me that if you truly don’t know that person it takes you that long to say “I don’t know him.”

    he was/is in Japan or over seas. There is a time difference and like most people over there, I believe he was sleeping when the accusations came to light. I hate to remind you of this, but most people don’t answer their phones in the middle of night…because they are sleeping…

    I believe Takei. Everyone wants to profit from these sexual accusations now. Innocent until proven otherwise, I say!

  • Jamie

    I really hope people aren’t making things up now.

    “My husband believes me!” Okay, but if you cant remember that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen does it?

  • Ram

    I read the piece by THR detailing this entire story and I encourage EVERYONE to read it too.

    I am liberal, a big fan of Takei – I believe his accuser. Sometimes our favs are total frauds (see: Louis CK). It hurts to feel and learn it – but, thats the way it is.
