George Takei Accused Of Sexual Assault By Former Model

Scott R Brunton, a former model, has accused George Takei of sexual assault. Brunton says that he woke up at Takei’s home in 1981, after a round of drinks, to Takei undressing him without his consent. Brunton managed to leave Takei, who maintained that he was just trying to make him feel more comfortable.

Brunton had just gone through a bad breakup at the time, and was invited for a night out by Takei. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brunton said that he started to feel disoriented after two drinks at Takei’s condo.

“So I sat down in that and leaned my head back and I must have passed out. The next thing I remember I was coming to and he had my pants down around my ankles and he was groping my crotch and trying to get my underwear off and feeling me up at the same time, trying to get his hands down my underwear,” Brunton was quoted as saying.

Nude and S Durga Removed From IFFI

The Information & Broadcasting Ministry has removed Nude and S Durga from the final screening list of the Panorama section of the International Film Festival of India, Goa.

Ruchi Narain, a member of the IFFI jury, told Mumbai Mirror, “The final list that has come out does not match the list we submitted. Personally, I felt Nude and S Durga were stunning quality films which festival audiences would really appreciate.”

S Durga’s filmmaker Sanal Kumar Sasidharan lashed out at the ministry for its decision. “I even heard that the I&B secretary had liked it and recommended it. But I had an inkling that this might happen, given that it was twice denied censor exemption. It was only screened at MAMI (Mumbai Academy of Moving Images) Film Festival earlier after the censor board passed it with a U/A certificate, after I had changed the title to S Durga. I will find a way to reach them through private screenings and international film festivals.”
