If we’ve learned one thing over the last few weeks, it’s that almost every guy in Hollywood is a real sex-charged asshole who grabs anything that moves whether they like it or not. I swear, if we find out Tony Shalhoub was distracting people with that OCD persona just to grope people on the set of Monk, I’m going to jump into Boston Harbor. But speaking of alleged “good guys” gone nasty, there were allegations George Takei groped a model back in the day. A clip from October resurfaced of George on Howard Stern’s show basically admitting to the gay version of “grab ‘em by the pussy.” George now says that was all in jest. Continue reading
On Friday, the internet’s lovable uncle George Takei instantly became the uncle everyone actively avoids one-on-one time at Thanksgiving dinner after a former model accused him of sexual assault in 1981. George denied the accusations made by Scott R. Brunton, and said that he doesn’t even know Scott and never did anything wrong. George is trying to figure out why such an accusation was made in the first place. According to George, it was Russian bots!
But you surmised that already, right? Everything that was semi-solid feels like it’s crumbling as we finish up with 2017. 2016 was “The Year That Everyone Good Died (In Addition To Hope)“. This year’s theme is “The Year That All Your Illusions Joined The Dead People From 2016.”
The Harvey Weinstein situation opened the floodgates for many, many, many, many, many women and men to finally feel empowered to share their own stories of sexual harassment/abuse from rich and powerful Hollywood types. We’ve now learned that Star Trek actor/America’s
Formerly(?) Most Beloved Homosexual George Takei is being accused of sexual assault. That’s in addition to actor Richard Dreyfuss (whose son recently claimed that Kevin Spacey sexually assaulted him), and music/tv executive Benny Medina. At this point, 2018 will hopefully be “The Year The Asteroids Rained Down And Ended This Shit.” Continue reading
Silver Foxes, the Golden Girls homage featuring old gay dudes, is lying dead out on the lanai. And Hollywood bigotry is to blame! (I’m with you, because I, too, figured that it wasn’t happening because Bea Arthur looked down from the higher plane that she’s surely ruling and snarled “You’re replacing me with Bruce f**king Vilanch?” Continue reading
The upcoming Star Trek Beyond already has some strikes against it. The most tragic one was when Anton Yelchin, who played Chekov, was killed in a freak accident last month. Other minor snags included the first trailer looking like shit, and Sia not exactly switching it up for Rihanna. And now “America’s Most Beloved Homosexual” (Richard Simmons has never officially come out) George Takei is shitting on the producers’ decision to make his old character Sulu gay in the updated franchise. Well, fellow Star Trek gay Zachary Quinto and actor/screenwriter Simon Pegg would beg to differ.
George was quoted as saying that the decision to make Hikaru Sulu (played by John Cho in the new version) gay went against Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry’s original vision and was “really unfortunate” Spock and Scotty would like a word, George.
