George Takei Apologizes For Comments Made On Howard Stern's Show

Former model Scott Brunton claims that Takei groped his genitals while he was unconscious at a party in 1981. Stern interjected. "What are you saying, George?".

In a social media post, Takei said he attempted to play the role of a "naughty gay grandpa" whilst appearing on the radio show, adding that it was a "caricature that I now regret". "You've never held a job over someone if they didn't touch your (co-worker)?"

Brunton's claims were made after many people across the entertainment industry had been accused of sexual misconduct, including Brett Ratner, Kevin Spacey, Charlie Sheen, Harvey Weinstein, Jeffrey Tambor and Amazon Studios executive Roy Price.

The situation then intensified when an October clip re-surfaced of Takei making concerning comments to Howard Stern in an interview. While Takei fiercely denied the accusation, an interview with Stern has since resurfaced, which featured him joking about touching men.

Takei, an LGBT activist and far-left zealot, choose to boldly go where Democrats have gone before, blaming Russian Federation for the salacious claim getting so much attention.

"Many have raised concern over a back-and-forth between Howard Stern and myself, where we joked about me touching men during my Star Trek days fifty years ago", Takei said on his Facebook page. "Out of context, I agree that the joke was distasteful, and I'm very sorry he and I made fun out of a serious matter".

"I want to be clear: I have never forced myself upon someone during a date". "It was always by mutual consent". "But it didn't involve power over the other".

"I see now that that it has come across poorly in the awkward sketch, and I apologise for playing along with Howard's insinuation". I came to and said, 'What are you doing?!' I said, 'I don't want to do this.' He goes, 'You need to relax.

The actor took to Twitter Monday to say Russian bots are pushing the harmful charge against him - though the tweets failed to stand up to the test of ridicule, as Takei was quick to delete them.
