George Takei Speaks Out After Sexual Assault Accuser Changes His Story

George Takei is speaking out about the sexual assault allegations against him, after a new investigative article was released.

The now 81-year-old actor was accused of making an unwanted advance on former model Scott R. Brunton while he was passed out after the men had dinner together in 1981.

The new article questioned the inconsistencies in Scott‘s story, after he admitted to not remembering if George physically touched him.

“As many of you know, this has been a very difficult period for myself and my husband Brad as we have dealt with the impact of these accusations, but we are happy to see that this nightmare is finally drawing to a close. As I stated before, I do not remember Mr. Brunton or any of the events he described from forty years ago, but I do understand that this was part of a very important national conversation that we as a society must have, painful as it might be,” George wrote on his Twitter.

He added, “It is in that spirit that I want folks to know, despite what he has put us through, I do not bear Mr. Brunton any ill will, and I wish him peace. Brad and I are especially grateful for the many fans who stood by me throughout this ordeal. Your support kept us going, and we are so immensely thankful for you.”

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.
