"You never hassled anybody, or grabbed their cock?" Stern and Takei were discussing the "irony" of the Weinstein case and the audiotape of President Donald Trump boasting about grabbing women's genitals years ago, when Stern asked Takei whether he had ever grabbed a man's genitals against his will.

All of this is further complicated by Takei's interview with Howard Stern back in October, which seems to imply that the incident Brunton alleges most definitely could have occurred in Takei's history.

Takei attempts to play it off as a joke, but the host presses on.

Takei, a staunch opponent of the Republican president, initially was silent, then said "uh oh" and laughed.

"What is he saying, Howard?"

Stern asked Takei whether or not he had ever grabbed a man's genitals against his will. "You never held a job over someone?" "I said I need to sit down and he said sit over here and he had the giant yellow beanbag chair", said Brunton, who said that he believes he passed out for a few minutes. "But you didn't do this grabbing at work?" "They came to my home".

"What do you mean, you mean some guy who was hesitating to have sex with you and you gave him a gentle squeeze on the balls?" He said the two went to Takei's condo for drinks after.

John Oliver criticises Donald Trump and Louis CK in season finale
So the " Last Week Tonight " writers did exactly that - beginning simply with "The nuclear" - and Oliver's point was quite easily proven.

Other powerful, but lesser known, heavyweights in Hollywood have been hit with charges ranging from men publicly exposing themselves to groping and raping women.

He remembered thinking it was corny that the actor served him a drink in a Star Trek glass. The Hollywood Reporter said Friday they spoke to four longtime friends of Brunton who said he had confided in them about his encounter with Takei years ago.

Takei denied the claim, going on a tweetstorm to say he's "shocked and bewildered" by the claim he sexually assaulted Brunton and that he doesn't even recall knowing the former model.

"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 alleged. "I have wracked my brain to ask if I remember Mr. Brunton, and I can not say I do", he wrote. 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.

"I did flirt with her, and I remember trying to kiss Jessica as part of what I thought was a consensual seduction ritual that went on and on for many years", he said. 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. "I walked out and went to my auto until I felt well enough to drive home, and that was that".

Brunton and Teich both said they were inspired to come forward after reading statements of support made by Takei and Dreyfuss in the wake of sexual-assault claims by others.

It's impossible to know if Takei was describing the events of 1981 to Stern or altogether unrelated experiences. "But those that know me understand that nonconsensual acts are so antithethical to my values and my practices, the very idea that someone would accuse me of this is quite personally painful".
