George Takei Blames Russian Bots For Trying To "Amplify" Sexual Assault Accusation

George Takei, Sulu

On Friday, former model Scott R. Brunton accused the “Star Trek” legend of sexually assaulting him in 1981. 

Takei denied the allegations, saying that he was “shocked and bewildered” by the claims, but Takei apparently didn’t consider that or his own massive fame as a reason why Brunton’s allegations attracted so much attention. Instead, today, Takei suggested via two tweets that Russian bots were responsible for amplifying the story.

The reason? Takei thinks it’s because he has criticized Vladimir Putin’s anti-LGBT policies, according to Towleroad.

I think the Russians have been hacking the I am bored website and down voting people's comments

Russia is a horrific place for gay people. I would not be surprised if there was retaliation going on.
