George Takei accused of sexual misconduct by former model


The Star Trek actor denied allegations model Scott Brunton made to the Hollywood Reporter last week. Brunton claims the 80-year-old actor tried to remove his underwear.

It came as actor Richard Dreyfuss, 70, was also accused of sexual misconduct Friday by writer Jessica Teich, 58.

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. I was hoping other people who he may have done this too also would come forward. He said the two went to Takei's condo for drinks after. You never held a job over someone if they didn't touch your c-k? "He said, "Let me know what your new number is" and I did. It just seemed so hypocritical". Stern asks Takei who hesitates.

Brunton said he chose to tell his story after Takei publicly criticized Kevin Spacey for allegedly making a sexual advance toward actor Anthony Rapp when both of them were working on Broadway in 1986. "They do so because they have the power, and they chose to abuse it".

Tom Hanks's cameo on 'Last Week Tonight' that you probably missed
Tom Hanks made a surprise appearance in the season finale of Last Week Tonight With John Oliver on Sunday night (12Nov17). He went on to show a transcript of a Trump speech about Iran as a disembodied voice expressionlessly read the text.

In response to those specific allegations, Takei said he was "shocked and bewildered" at the claims. He said that he woke with his trousers around his ankles, and Takei trying to remove his underwear, while groping him at the same time. "I said, 'No. I don't want to do this.' And I pushed him off and he said, 'OK, fine'". Brunton says he's seeking an apology from Takei.

He wrote on Twitter: 'The events he describes back in the 1980s simply did not occur, and I do not know why he has claimed them now. I have wracked my brain to ask if I remember Mr. Brunton, and I can not say I do.

'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.

Then again, Takei still has supporters, people who do believe his denial of sexual assault and who are calling out conservatives for being hypocrites, notably by jumping to condemn Takei over a more than 40-year-old incident when they continue to support Trump.

Tesco's £3.7 billion takeover of Booker has been approved
In a brief statement , Tesco welcomed the CMA news, adding that it expected the Booker takeover to complete in early 2018. A panel made up of CMA members found that after the companies "do not compete head-to-head in most of their activities".

Takei has denied the allegations saying that "non-consensual acts are so antithetical to my values and my practices".

In 1987, when Teich was working for Dreyfuss on development of an ABC show script, she said she was summoned to his trailer on the set of one of his films and he exposed his genitals to her. I didn't get it. "I didn't, and I left".

"He created a very hostile work environment, where I felt sexualized, objectified, and unsafe", she told Vulture. We met for coffee, and I just couldn't bring myself to do it.

Takei's rep, Julia Buchwald, tells THR, "George is traveling in Japan and Australia and not reachable for comment". Brunton said he was with his boyfriend at a Los Angeles gay bar when he first met the actor. Edwards says Goddard preyed upon him because he was vulnerable and that he molested him for years and raped his best friend.

Google Doodle gives Children's Day a miss this year
While not quite as indispensable as the stapler, the hole puncher has been a staple of business offices for more than a century. A cornerstone of stationery cupboards across the globe, the hole puncher celebrates its 131st anniversary today (November 14).

Both tweets have since been deleted, but one eagle-eyed man saved them for posterity. "With their sick form of control, abusers exploit a child's natural desire to bond".
