STAR TREK actor and activist George Takei took to Twitter this morning to respond to sexual assault charges charges made against him yesterday by a former actor/model. The accuser, Scott R. Brunton, said the incident took place in 1981 when he was 23 years old.

Brenton said the two men were drinking at Takei’s condo when Brunton passed out and awoke to find Takei groping his crotch and trying to take off his underwear. Takei denied the incident happened writing that he was “as shocked and bewildered at these claims as you must feel reading them”.

Takei went on to call the charges a “he said / he said situation” and said “I have wracked my brain to ask if I remember Mr. Brunton, and I cannot say I do”. Read Takei’s full twitter thread below:
