George Takei has responded to an accusation of sexual assault

> Star Trek icon George Takei has responded to an accusation of sexual assault made by a former model and actor who alleged an incident at Takei’s home in 1981. In a series of tweets Saturday morning, Takei writes that the events “simply did not occur.” He adds that he does not remember Scott R Brunton, who made the allegations in a THR interview which ran on Friday.

“I am as shocked and bewildered at these claims as you must feel reading them,” Takei continues to his 2.8M followers.

Takei, who played Mr. Sulu on the original “Star Trek,” and who is also an author, producer and social activist, writes, “I do take these claims very seriously, and I wanted to provide my response thoughtfully and not out of the moment.”

“Right now it is a he said/he said situation, over alleged events nearly 40 years ago,” he continues. “But those that know me understand that non-consensual acts are so antithetical to my values and my practices, the very idea that someone would accuse me of this is quite personally painful.”

Hasn't Takei got form for saying it's okay for an adult to have sex with a minor,  and if the minor consents it is not assault?

And he's also admitted to grabbing men in his home to persuade them to have sex if they are reluctant
