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

Over the weekend, it was George Takei, who was accused of taking advantage of Scott Brunton, an ex-model and actor, when Brunton was 23 and Takei was in his forties.

But the man best known for his role as Mr. Sulu, the helmsman of the USS Enterprise on Star Trek, said in a series of tweets that he is "shocked and bewildered" by the allegations and that the "events (Brunton) describes back in the 1980s simply did not occur".

Takei added that he takes the claims seriously and stated that "non-consensual acts are so antithetical to my values and my practices".

But when Brunton read Takei's response to the sexual assault allegations against Kevin Spacey, he chose to tell his story. "Because George Takei has a dark side". "I have been telling it for years, but I am suddenly very nervous telling it".

The trio exchanged numbers and occasionally hung out, Brunton said. "Men who improperly harass or assault do not do so because they are gay or straight", said Takei. He was so not my type.

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 had a second drink and then I started to feel awful, and I stood up and said, 'Oh my God, I'm going to pass out, "' he recalled. "And I said sure". After Brunton passed out, he says, he came to, only to find "my trousers down around my ankles and [that Takei] was groping my crotch and trying to get my underwear off". I said, 'What are you doing? I walked out and went to my auto until I felt well enough to drive home, and that was that, ' Brunton claims. I'm just trying to make you comfortable.

Brunton says he and Takei met in the early '80s, and that Takei invited him to his condo one night after Brunton broke up with his then boyfriend. He said he extricated himself and left. Edwards says Goddard preyed upon him because he was vulnerable and that he molested him for years and raped his best friend.

In an account published by The Hollywood Reporter, Brunton claims Takei took him for dinner before leading him back to his flat.

Spacey has also been charged with forcefully assaulting actor Anthony Rapp when he was only 14 years' old.

"When he started in on Kevin Spacey, I thought, 'Oh my God, the hypocrisy, '" he said. What are you saying, George?

The former model said he was amused that Takei doesn't remember him after their numerous encounters. Brunton asked. "I understand why he is not owning up to it". The actress, who was 18 at that time, wrote that "I was a young adult who had not yet come out to myself".
