George Takei blames Russian bots for trying to 'amplify' sexual assault accusation

George Takei, Richard Dreyfuss and Gary Goddard accused of sexual misconduct

Stern: Well they were different times, you never sexually harassed anybody. have you?

In 1987, when Teich was working for Dreyfuss on development of an ABC show script, she said she was summoned to his trailer on the set of one of his films and he exposed his genitals to her. You're in no condition to drive.' I said, 'I don't care I want to go.' So I managed to get my trousers up and compose myself and I was just shocked.

"I trusted him. That's what's always so weird", Teich told Vulture.

Veteran Star Trek actor George Takei has vehemently denied allegations that he groped a male model during an encounter in the 1980s, insisting the alleged events "simply did not occur".

Takei allegedly tried to remove Brunton's underwear after the latter passed out from drinking.

"I want to assure you all that I am as shocked and bewildered at these claims as you must feel reading them", he wrote Saturday morning.

Takei, a staunch opponent of the Republican president, initially was silent, then said "uh oh" and laughed. He said he extricated himself and left.

Brunton told The Hollywood Reporter that when he was 23, he met Takei, who was in his 40s at the time, at a local bar.

Then again, Takei still has supporters, people who do believe his denial of sexual assault and who are calling out conservatives for being hypocrites, notably by jumping to condemn Takei over a more than 40-year-old incident when they continue to support Trump.

He said he would not be back in the sea for a week because of his injuries, but after that would be "racing to get back in". But lifeguards spotted a great white shark and a bronze whaler in the area shortly after the horrific incident.

Stern brought up the topic of sexual assault by noting the harsher consequences Harvey Weinstein faces compared to Trump.

In a frequently explicit discussion, Stern asked Takei if he'd ever grabbed somebody "against their will" - and the actor's response made the radio host joke that he might need to call the police.

"Well, it's some people that are kind of, um, skittish, or maybe afraid, and you're trying to persuade", Takei replies.

Stern then asks him if he has ever made a move on a "guy who was hesitating to have sex" with him by "giving him a gentle squeeze".

Quivers: But you didn't do this grabbing at work? In now-deleted tweets, Takei posted a graph from Securing Democracy, a site that tracks "Russian influence operations on Twitter", and said he had been targeted before when he criticized Putin's anti-LGBT policies. "It was ... in my home, they came to my home".

In another development in the barrage of sexual assault, harassment and rape allegations to rock the entertainment and other industries, MA prosecutors will meet with the son of a former Boston TV news anchor who said Kevin Spacey sexually assaulted the teenage boy at a Nantucket restaurant.

Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe told The Boston Globe on Friday the meeting "will occur soon".

Heather Unruh told reporters Wednesday that Spacey stuck his hand down her then-18-year-old-son's trousers and grabbed his genitals while the two of them were at a restaurant in July 2016. "I was hoping he would do a full Louis C.K. and. admit it, but I guess not".

Others seem less forgiving.
