Star Trek actor, George Takei has also been accused of sexual assault by Scott R. Burton. The star trek icon was accused of groping the accuser at his L.A in the year 1981,when the accuser was 23 years old, while Takei was 43 or 43 years old at the time.
The pair had met at a bar, and exchanged numbers, and Scott at the time was looking to enter Hollywood, and had also broken up with his then boyfriend. According to Scott when speaking to Hollywood reporters;
This happened a long time ago, but I have never forgotten it,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. I have been telling it for years, but I am suddenly very nervous telling it.
He was very good at consoling me and understanding that I was upset and still in love with my boyfriend,He was very good about me spilling my heart on my sleeve.
Both men at the time on Takei invitation had gone to dinner and then to a theatre, then headed back to Takei condo for drinks the same night, and according to Scott narratives to Hollywood reporters;
We have the drink and he asks if I would like another. 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.
When the friends of Scott's, Norah Roadman, Rob Donovan, Stephen Blackshear and Jan Steward were all contacted, they all confirmed the story and said he had told them the encounter he had with Takei years ago.
Takei is not available for comment on the current allegations. According to Takei's rep, Julia Buchwald, Mr Takei is on a trip to Japan and Australia.
George Takei aside from his role in Star Trek, he has been known to have spoken against Kevin Spacey, who was alleged to have molested a 14 year old, Anthony Rapp, when Rapp was 14.
Takei was not happy with the move by Spacey who then via his twitter apologised for the allegations, and also came out as gay. Takei believed that Kevin was only trying to "deflect" from the real accusation that he had molested a young boy with his "coming out of closet" comment.
Takei is an activist and great advocate of LGBTQ rights.
