George Takei

Former Star Trek star George Takei, 80, has been accused of sexual assault involving a former male model. In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter published on November 10, Scott. R. Brunton alleged Takei groped him while at the actor’s Los Angeles condo in 1981. The ex-model claims he “must have passed out” after a couple drinks at Takei’s place and allegedly woke up with his pants down while the actor, who was in his mid-40s at the time, was “trying to get his hands down my underwear.” On November 11, Takei wrote a post on Facebook where he vehemently denied the accusations, saying he is “shocked and bewildered” by the claims and the events being described “simply did not occur.” Photo from The Associated Press.

WARNING: The details in this article are graphic in nature. Readers’ discretion is advised. 

The sexual harassment claims involving some of the biggest names in entertainment are mounting as more and more people are speaking out.

The allegations are sending shockwaves across social media, where the #MeToo campaign has made headlines worldwide.

If it seems like there’s a new revelation every day, it’s probably because there is one. Not all of them include famous movie actors and producers, but that’s where the tidal wave began.

Since accusations were levied against powerful film executive Harvey Weinstein in October 2017, scores of women and some men have come forward with claims of their own.

This photo gallery details the claims and responses of those facing sexual assault accusations in the past month, including Weinstein, Ben Affleck, James Toback, Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman, Jeremy Piven, Brett Ratner, George Takei, Ed Westwick, Steven Seagal, Louis C.K., Jeffrey Tambor, Sylvester Stallone, Al Franken, Ryan Seacrest, Russell Simmons, Charlie Rose, Nick Carter, Matt Lauer, Geraldo Rivera, Danny Masterson, Mario Batali and Larry King.

This article only mentions allegations made against high-profile personalities in the entertainment industry, and does not mention others who have been accused of sexual misconduct since the #MeToo campaign went viral last month.

None of the allegations made against any of these figures have been proven in court. In some cases, the claims being made are being investigated by law enforcement.
