The 80-year-old Takei initially responded to the allegations by calling them false and claiming he had no memory of Brunton.

Takei has not yet responded to fans linking Brunton's allegations to his comments on Howard Stern's show. When he woke up, Takei was on top of him, trying to take off his clothes. Brunton then said he pushed the actor off of him and went to sit in his auto until he was sober enough to drive himself home.
Media companies have cut ties with Louis C.K. after he acknowledged engaging in inappropriate behavior with multiple women, most of whom accused him of masturbating in front of them or asking them to watch him masturbate.
"Star Trek" star and LBGT icon George Takei is denying allegations that he groped a former male model who says he passed out while drinking at the actor's Los Angeles condo almost 40 years ago. Takei denies the allegations, and also blames the Russians, because it's 2017 and literally anything is plausible.
Takei's Russian bot theory was seized upon as an example of liberal hypocrisy by people whose profiles suggest they have pro-Trump, pro-conservative leanings.
Takei is an outspoken LGBT rights advocate with 2.79 million Twitter followers.

Apart from helping keep otherwise loose documents together, hole punches have found another important use in punching tickets. These are a reference to the small circular bits of paper that are leftover after we punch holes in the sheets of papers.
Even some self-described liberals agreed that Takei shouldn't be given the benefit of a doubt if that's not granted to Moore, especially when the national conversation around sexual misconduct has shifted to believing victims.
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.
Howard Stern arrives at the "America's Got Talent" Season 10 red carpet kickoff at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, N.J.in March 2015. Stern's co-host Robin Quivers asks. "People say outrageous things on Howard Stern". "[But] you never sexually harassed anyone".
Takei: [Laughter]. Some people that are kind of, um, um, skittish. "And not long after we broke up and I moved out, George called me", Brunton recalls. I have wracked my brain to ask if I remember Mr Brunton, and I can not say I do'.
Stern asked Takei whether or not he had ever grabbed a man's genitals against his will.
"Oh no, no, it wasn't at work", Takei assured. "It was...in my home, they came to my home". The legal definition of sexual assault includes fondling someone's body without their "explicit consent", which means if Takei did have a practice of "persuading" men into sex, he risked sexual assault every time he crossed a line-assuming that the man he was "persuading" would consent. "Men who improperly harass or assault do not do so because they are gay or straight", said Takei. But it didn't involve power over the other.
Brunton then detailed an alleged encounter that he said forced him to flee Takei's condo.
