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.”
But in an interview with shock jock Howard Stern recorded just weeks ago, Takei appeared to admit that he had grabbed and groped people in the past, saying he did it to “persuade” people who were “afraid” to have a sexual encounter with him.
There’s a transcript at the link.
Howard Stern: Did you ever grab anybody by the c–k against their will?
[Very long pause]
George Takei: Uhhhh … uh oh! [laughter]
Stern: Maybe it was some guy who was hesitating to have sex with you and you gave him a gentle squeeze on the b—s or something?
Takei: … More than gentle [laughter]. But it didn’t involve power over the other.
Yeah, I know this isn’t an Important News Story, but seeing a self-righteous prig like George Takei hoist on his own petard is pretty neat.
Update: Sulu says he was just role-playing a “sexy, gay grandpa” during the Stern interview. I think I wanna be celibate, now.
