George Takei Described Forcibly 'Persuading' Men Into Sex on Howard Stern

George Takei Described Forcibly 'Persuading' Men Into Sex on Howard Stern

The Hollywood Reporter published an interview with Scott R. Brunton, who said he was groped by the former Star Trek actor when he was 23 and Takei was in his 40s.

"Right now it is a he said / he said situation, over alleged events almost 40 years ago".

Takei added that he takes the claims seriously and stated that "non-consensual acts are so antithetical to my values and my practices". I'm just trying to make you comfortable. At one point, Teich says she was summoned to the Oscar-winner's trailer on a set in 1987 and found him with his penis exposed.

He said he never told anyone because he thought "it's my word against his". Dreyfuss, now 70, called Teich a friend of more than 30 years.

Richard Dreyfuss' son said Kevin Spacey groped him when he was 18, prompting his dad to tweet that he was "incredibly proud" of his son.

Brunton said he made a decision to tell his story after Takei publicly criticized Kevin Spacey for allegedly making a sexual advance toward actor Anthony Rapp when both of them were working on Broadway in 1986.

"Well, they were different times", Stern says. Brunton says he told Takei "No, I don't want to do this", and pushed him off, to which Takei responded, "OK, fine". After having two drinks with him, Brunton said he became dizzy and passed out. On one occasion, she said he exposed himself to her.

Takei denied Brunton's claims, and said that the accusation was "personally painful".

Speaking to reporters Sunday, Trump said he will make a new announcement on trade when he returns to the United States. Trump is on a five-country trip through Asia traveling to Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines.

However, in October, Takei made some comments during an interview on "The Howard Stern Show" that are particularly freaky in the wake of Brunton's accusations. Stern and Takei were discussing the "irony" of the Weinstein case and the audiotape of President Donald Trump boasting about grabbing women's genitals years ago, when Stern asked Takei whether he had ever grabbed a man's genitals against his will.

Takei initially remained silent after Stern's question, but then chuckled and said, "Uh-oh". Stern asked again and Takei said, "Some people are kind of skittish, or maybe, um, uh, afraid, and you're trying to persuade".

As the interview continued, Stern prompted Takei to describe his persuasion in detail, asking if he'd ever given a man's genitals "a gentle squeeze" while convincing him, and Takei answered, "More than a gentle".

Quivers asked if he did "this grabbing at work".

Brunton said that after a date with Takei, he went with Takei back to his condo. "It was either in my home ― they came to my home". Television Group pending an investigation of sexual harassment and inappropriate touching accusations made by 19 former and current employees.

Judging by reactions on Twitter and other social media over the weekend, the Takei sexual misconduct allegations appeared to hit fans and others pretty hard.

Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe told The Boston Globe on Friday the meeting "will occur soon". "He was 20 years older than me". Unruh said Spacey ultimately left to use the bathroom and when he was out of sight, her son ran away.

Takei did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.
