George Takei addressed his star trek co-star William Shatner’s claim that he’s using his name for “advertising.”
Last year, Takei poked fun at Shatner’s trip into space, saying he was being used as a 90-year-old “guinea pig” to assess the effects of space on an “unfit” specimen.
Shatner responded to Takei’s comments and narrated The times: “I started to understand that they were doing it for the public.
“Sixty years after an incident, they are still on this path. Don’t you find that a bit strange? It’s like an illness.
“George never stopped blacking out my name. These people are bitter and bitter. I have no more patience with them. Why believe people who are consumed by envy and hate?”
On Friday (November 26), Takei responded to Shatner’s comments, saying, “Bill says I talk about him for publicity… nonsense!
“I don’t need him out in public, so I’m not going to play his game by talking about him,” he said Mirror.
In his new collection of essays walk boldlyShatner wrote about the breakdown of his friendship with many of his star trek Co-stars like Leonard Nimoy, who played Spock, and the fact that Uhura actress Nichelle Nichols told him his co-stars found him “cold and arrogant.”
“I was horrified to learn this and ashamed that I hadn’t noticed,” Shatner wrote.
The Captain Kirk actor’s collection Boldly Go: Reflections on a life of awe and wonder is out now.
