“Star Trek” star George Takei denied the allegations made by a former model that the actor spiked his drink and sexually assaulted, claiming he doesn’t recall knowing the man.
…even though he all but admitted doing just that in an interview with Howard Stern!

In effect, the famed “Mr. Sulu” character insisted his accuser, Scott Brunton, is from another galaxy, even though Brunton shared intimate details of the incident he said happened in the 1980s, asking only for an apology.
Takei, an LGBT activist and far-left zealot, choose to boldly go where Democrats have gone before, blaming Russia for the salacious claim getting so much attention.
That’s right, the Russians did it!
The actor took to Twitter Monday to say Russian bots are pushing the harmful charge against him — though the tweets failed to stand up to the test of ridicule, as Takei was quick to delete them.

Playing the role of victim, his first tweet stated: “A friend sent me this. It is a chart of what Russian bots have been doing to amplify stories containing the allegations against me. It’s clear they want to cow me into silence, but do not fear friends. I won’t succumb to that.”
Takei believes his voice is important enough that Russians moved to silence him. All because he criticized Russian President Vladimir Putin’s stance on gay rights.
A follow-up tweet noted that this is not a new development for him.
“By way of background,” he said, “when I criticized Putin’s anti-LGBT policies publicly, Russian bots attacked my FB page relentlessly, and we had to develop special security measures and ban all traffic from within the Russian Federation and the Ukraine. I am accustomed to their practices.”
Of course, this is a clever attempt to suggest Russia is trying to discredit a high-profile celebrity with a history of criticized President Trump. Another far-reaching attempt to buoy thus far unsubstantiated collusion charges.
Either way, social media users had a difficult time covering the stretch… here’s a small sampling of reactions from Twitter — at least Sulu offers much-needed entertainment value amid such serious times:
George, I say this with all the love in the world toward you. Don't go in this direction. If the allegations are untrue, say so, and leave it at that. Russia is not trying to silence you. This makes you sound silly (and too self-important).

The extent to which predators will avoid accountability:
George Takei, knowing fully well many of his followers are from #Resistance twitter, had deflected his sexual assault allegations onto Russia. This is not only manipulative, but downright disgusting. pic.twitter.com/SwoGuUWgBT

George Takei actually blamed Russian bots for "amplifying" the stories of his alleged assault. He thinks his inane jokes are that much of a threat to Putin, for whatever reason.
He's done. pic.twitter.com/YTRCy2R05H

George Takei took his hand out of someone else’s pants long enough to claim the Russians are now after him! ?
The left is certifiably insane. ?? https://t.co/E8PnHcSUSD

I can’t believe he really tried to use RUSSIA as an excuse. Gotta go pick my jaw up off the floor now.
