George Takei unveils novel sex scandal PR strategy: blame Russians

Perpetual whiner George Takei got swept up in the Hollywood sex scandal furore this week.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, former male model Scott R. Brunton alleges that Takei assaulted him in 1981.  Brunton says this happened after he broke up with his boyfriend and Takei was there “to comfort him”, essential for any pervert’s handbook. Brunton claims thngs took a turn when Takei invited him back to his condo after a night of drinking.

“The next thing I remember I was coming to and 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, trying to get his hands down my underwear. I came to and said, ‘What are you doing?!’ I said, ‘I don’t want to do this.’ He goes, ‘You need to relax. I am just trying to make you comfortable. Get comfortable.’ And I said, ‘No. I don’t want to do this.’ And I pushed him off and he said, ‘OK, fine.’ And I said I am going to go and he said, ‘If you feel you must. You’re in no condition to drive.’ I said, ‘I don’t care I want to go.’ So I managed to get my pants up and compose myself and I was just shocked. I walked out and went to my car until I felt well enough to drive home, and that was that.”

Solid comforting there, George.

Takei made a couple or three errors in his response.

First, he only partly used the Jeremy Piven defense, saying “The events he describes back in the 1980s simply did not occur”.  But he also tried to mix it with the Kevin Spacey amnesia defense, using words like “shocked and bewildered”, and “racking my 80 year old brain to remember”.  He then made it worse, explain that it wasn’t who he was, wasn’t what he stood for, that his life partner is supporting him and thanked us all for trusting him.


Second error was appearing on the Howard Stern Show, and talking about fondling dudes in non-consensual acts that are antithetical to his values and practices:

When Stern inquired if Takei had ever been involved in nonconsensual sexual activity, an uncomfortable silence followed, as the actor attempted to laugh off the question.

“Did you ever grab anyone by the cock against their will?” Stern asked at one point.

“Some people that are kind of … umm … skittish or maybe … um … afraid and you’re trying to persuade…” Takei said.

Takei later said that those incidents never occurred on the job and that in his eyes they were consensual.

“No, it wasn’t at work,” he said. “It was either in my home ― they came to my home.”

Stern then tried to get Takei to clarify further, asking if he ever gave someone “a gentle squeeze on the balls.”

“More than a gentle,” Takei replied. “But it didn’t involve power over the other.”

More than a gentle squeeze on the balls.  But only if they’re kind of skittish.  Or afraid.  Then it’s OK.

Try not to vomit in your mouth as you hear him out:

You might remember how frequent social media virtue signaller and whiner Takei insisted on involving himself in Kevin Spacey’s ball-fondling allegation.  There’s no better place to insert yourself into a dialogue that may or may not pertain to you than social media:

“When power is used in a non-consensual situation, it is a wrong. For Anthony Rapp, he has had to live with the memory of this experience of decades ago. For Kevin Spacey, who claims not to remember the incident, he was the older, dominant one who had his way. Men who improperly harass or assault do not do so because they are gay or straight – that is a deflection. They do so because they have the power, and they chose to abuse it.”

If you can pick out the distinction without a difference between Spacey’s situation and Takei’s, let me know.

Takei’s third PR error came a day later, when he found the real culprits for his sexual assault allegations: Russia:

Yes, I’m sure Vladimir Putin is intensely focussed on the gay rantings of a former Star Trek actor.  High priority for them.

Takei of course had weighed in last year after Trump’s Access Hollywood tape hit the screens:

Amazing how Russian “hacking” only ever happens to hurt you, and to help other people, huh?

Maybe George’s values and practices men that instead of talking about it, you should just do it.  Or maybe his values and practices mean that you should get them drunk first, and rip their clothes off.   Or maybe his values and practices mean that it’s OK if its a man, and not a woman.  Or if they’re afraid.  Or skittish.  And you’re more than gentle.

Skeevy, hypocritical old bastard.
