Star Trek actor George Takei has denied an allegation that he groped a struggling model in 1981

Brunton claims the 80-year-old actor tried to remove his underwear.

The confusion among his fans appeared to grow after Takei posted a tweet, and then deleted it, in which he accused Russian bots for spreading the assault allegations, the Daily News reported.

Actor Richard Dreyfuss, 70, was also accused of inappropriate sexual conduct on Friday.

Edwards, 55, published a blog post on 10 November alleging he was molested by Goddard - a mentor and manager during his early career - for "years" after meeting him aged 12. Goddard's spokesperson has denied the charge.

I have little doubt that Russian bots really did engage with the Takei content. "I am sure he'll disown all this, I don't know, maybe not". "I felt violated when this happened".

"I want to assure you all that I am as shocked and bewildered at these claims as you must feel reading them", he tweeted Saturday.

Brunton said the actor guided him over to a yellow bean bag chair.

"When I read about his support for his son, which I would never question, I remember thinking, 'But wait a minute, this guy harassed me for months, ' " Teich told Vulture. "I looked through the crowd and told my boyfriend, 'Look that's Sulu'". "It just seemed so hypocritical". The legal definition of sexual assault includes fondling someone's body without their "explicit consent", which means if Takei did have a practice of "persuading" men into sex, he risked sexual assault every time he crossed a line-assuming that the man he was "persuading" would consent.

"'I don't want to do this, '" Brunton allegedly told Takei, to which the "Star Trek" actor reportedly responded, "'You need to relax. "They do so because they have the power, and they chose to abuse it". Takei said "It was either in my home". "The next thing I remember I was coming to and he had my trousers 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", Brunton told THR. "I have wracked my brain to ask if I remember Mr. Brunton, and I can not say I do", he wrote.

Brunton said that the incident left him feeling betrayed.

Takei's Facebook statement denying the accusation said, "The events he describes back in the 1980s simply did not occur, and I do not know why he has claimed them now". You're in no condition to drive.' I said, 'I don't care I want to go.' So I managed to get my trousers up and compose myself and I was just shocked. "He was very good about me spilling my heart on my sleeve".

The Hollywood Reporter said Friday it spoke to four longtime friends of Brunton who said he had confided in them about Takei years ago.

According to Teich's account, she was was in her mid-20's, working as a junior writer on a project that Dreyfuss was producing called "Funny, You Don't Look 200: A Constitutional Vaudeville" when the harassment started.

In 1987, Teich said she was summoned to Dreyfuss's trailer on the set of one of his films and he had exposed himself to her. "I thought it was cool that he thought enough of me to give me a sympathetic ear".

Takei's representative did not immediately respond to HuffPost's request for comment.
