George Takei 'shocked & bewildered' at sexual assault claims made against him

George Takei is blaming all the attention being given to the sexual assault allegations against him on Russian bots.

In a series of tweets responding to Burton's allegation over the weekend, Takei, 80, said that "The events he describes back in the 1980s simply did not occur, and I do not know why he has claimed them now". Takei actually wrote, "Right now it is a he said/he said situation".

Takei said "the very idea that someone would accuse me of this is quite personally painful".

Dreyfuss said he thought the two were involved in a playful "consensual seduction ritual".

"I had a second drink and then I started to feel bad, and I stood up and said, 'Oh my God, I'm going to pass out, "' he recalled.

Jessica Teich told the NY magazine blog Vulture.com that the actor made continual, overt and lewd comments and invitations after they met at a theater where she worked and Dreyfuss appeared. Dreyfuss, now 70, called Teich a friend of more than 30 years.

Dreyfuss agent Barry McPherson on Saturday denied the actor ever exposed himself to Teich but that he acknowledged to Vulture other encounters Dreyfuss now realizes were inappropriate.

"I trusted him. That's what's always so weird", Teich told Vulture. "He said, 'OK, fine.' And I said I am going to go and he said, 'If you feel you must". Brunton said he was with his boyfriend at a Los Angeles gay bar when he first met the actor. Brunton was living in Hollywood and working as a waiter at the time.

"Well, they were different times", Stern continued. I have wracked my brain to ask if I remember Mr. Brunton, and I can not say I do.

The night ended at Takei's condo, Brunton said.

Brunton said he fell unconscious at Takei's apartment after having a couple drinks and when he woke up his trousers were around his ankles, Takei was groping him and trying to get his underwear off. On one occasion, she said he exposed himself to her.

Scott R. Brunton alleged that Takei sexually assaulted him in 1981, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter on Friday.

On Saturday, an audio clip surfaced from Takei's appearance last month on Howard Stern's radio show.

Stern and Takei discussed the "irony" of the allegations against Weinstein in comparison to the 2005 "Access Hollywood" audiotape featuring President Donald Trump boasting about grabbing the genitals of women.

Takei paused, and then said, "hey, boner" before laughing uncomfortably. Stern asked again and Takei said, "Some people are kind of skittish, or maybe, um, uh, afraid, and you're trying to persuade".

Quivers asks with audible exasperation.

Brunton said he was bothered by Takei's response, but he's not asking for much from the actor. "It was...in my home, they came to my home".

Meanwhile, "Supergirl" and "Arrow" executive producer Andrew Kreisberg has been suspended by Warners Bros. "[But] you never sexually harassed anyone".

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.

Dreyfuss has not yet reacted to the accusation and his spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

De la Huerta told police October 25 the media mogul raped her twice in 2010. But the subpoena seeks "any and all medical treatment records" from the therapist, both handwritten and typed.
