Actor George Takei also accused of sexual assault

It’s seems like the season of sexual discontent in Hollywood as one after the other many icons have fallen by the wayside after being accused of being sexual offenders.

Many have apologized and taken the hit after what seemed like a deluge of women, including A listers, accused Harvey Weinstein and set the ball rolling.

The latest to hit the parade is the grand old man better-known these days for fighting for LGBTQ and human rights, the original Star Trek series star and social media influencer, George Takei.

The accuser, who was 23 at the time of the alleged incident, claims that Takei took advantage of him when he was most vulnerable.

Brunton said he was living in Hollywood in 1981, when he met 43-or 44-year-old Takei one evening at Greg’s Blue Dot bar.

The men exchanged numbers and used to call one another from time to time as well as run into each other at clubs, Brunton stated.

“He was very good at consoling me and understanding that I was upset and still in love with my boyfriend,” Brunton recalled, “He was a great ear. He was very good about me spilling my heart on my sleeve.”

Following a night out, the duo reportedly went back to Takei’s apartment for drinks and during the second drink, Brunton started feeling very disoriented and dizzy, and thought he was going to pass out.

He recalled, as he sat on the giant yellow beanbag chair in the Takei apartment and when he gained consciousness, the next thing he remembered was, “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.”

Brunton claims that he left his apartment even after Takei asked him to “relax”.

Four longtime friends of Brunton, Norah Roadman, Rob Donovan, Stephen Blackshear and Jan Steward also said that he had confided in them about the Takei encounter years ago.
