George Takei has denied allegations that he groped a male model in the 1980s. The Star Trek actor was accused by Scott Brunton, a former model and actor, of groping him when he was passed out drunk in 1981.

George Takei responds to allegations that he sexually assaulted a former model in 1981. But, according to Brunton, things took a sinister turn when he felt sick and passed out, then woke up to Takei " groping " his Takei , 80, took to Facebook this morning to vehemently deny the allegations .

Neither Takei nor Brunton responded to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Bruton alleged that Takei groped him after a night out which ended in the actor’s Los Angeles condo.

Bruton claimed that he “must have passed out” and woke up to Takei allegedly “groping my crotch and trying to get my underwear off.”

The allegations against Takei come weeks after Takei spoke out against actor Kevin Spacey, slamming Spacey for the actor’s alleged sexual misconduct against actor Anthony Rapp alongside Spacey’s choice to come out on the heels of the ensuing controversy.

“When power is used in a non-consensual situation, it is wrong,” Takei said in a statement released to PEOPLE. “For Anthony Rapp, he has had to live with the memory of this experience of decades ago. For Kevin Spacey, who claims not to remember the incident, he was the older, dominant one who had his way.”

“Men who improperly harass or assault do not do so because they are gay or straight — that is a deflection. They do so because they have the power, and they chose to abuse it,” he continued.
