This really isn’t the time in life to criticize anything that has to do with sexual harassment because the pervs are being roasted like chestnuts over an open fire. And speaking of nuts, guess who’s come back to dribble words of crazy from his lips? William Shatner! And he’s bringing us a real doozy this time and it all began with a few tweets about a classic Christmas song.
That nervous shuffling you just heard was the Travelocity Gnome and the Trivago DILF hauling ass to the nearest computer, pulling up Facebook, and scanning to see if any of their discount vacation lays now have a kid that looks like them.
William Shatner, Star Trek’s Captain Kirk and the greatest spoken-word lounge “singer” of all time, has found himself in the middle of a mess that includes a paternity test, a 59-year-old Florida DJ, and $170 million lawsuit. Page Six says that a DJ from Florida named Peter Sloan, who started going by Peter Shatner a few years ago, claims to be William Shatner’s long-lost son. Peter claims William Shatner had a brief affair with a Canadian actress named Kathy McNeil 59 years ago that resulted in a whoopsie baby (Peter). Kathy put Peter up for adoption when he was 5 days old, and now Peter wants his real daddy – which, according to Peter, is William Shatner – in his life.
Leonard Nimoy’s funeral is on Sunday and it will probably be a giant, sad Star Trek reunion, but one of the members of the U.S.S. Enterprise won’t be there.

Well, the good news is that now George Takei and William Shatner won’t get into a tussle in the front row and knock over the casket. Here’s what Shatner tweeted:

Here I am doing charity work and one of my dearest friends is being buried. I feel really awful. Here I am doing charity work and one of my dearest friends is being buried.
Can’t Shatner call Priceline and ask them to get him a good price on a private jet?! Because he should really perform this (sans cigarette, of course) at Leonard Nimoy’s memorial:
