"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", Takei tweeted in response to the allegations.

Stern asked Takei whether or not he had ever grabbed a man's genitals against his will.

Brunton said that after a date with Takei, he went with Takei back to his condo.
