Some of Star Trek performer George Takei’s family was forced into a Japanese internment camp on the West Coast of the United States during World War II.
In the recent Supreme Court ruling over gay marriage, Supreme Court judge Clarence Thomas, who is black, wrote that “human dignity cannot be taken away by the government…” He added, “Slaves did not lose their dignity (any more than they lost their humanity) because the government allowed them to be enslaved. Those held in internment camps did not lose their dignity because the government confined them.”
After having spent time in a Japanese internment camp as a child, George Takei disagrees.
Recently, a video surfaced of an onset meltdown by Dennis Quaid.
According to Variety: “In the expletive-laden tirade, seemingly captured on a crew member’s phone, Quaid takes someone to task for walking onto set and interrupting his line, before an off-camera speaker tries to calm him down. ‘Don’t f—ing ‘Dennis’ me, I am doing my job here, I’m a pro! This is the most unprofessional set I have ever been on,’ Quaid retorts, hurling a few more insults before apparently storming off set.”
Entertainment Weekly claims the rant was fake, but Jimmy Kimmel wasn’t behind it.
According to laist, actor Stephen Collins has admitted to molesting three underage girls.
The 67-year-old 7th Heaven star sent People a statement detailing the events that reportedly occurred over the span of 20 years from 1973 to 1994.
“Forty years ago, I did something terribly wrong that I deeply regret,” Collins writes. “I have been working to atone for it ever since.”
In the statement, Collins writes that when he was 25, he exposed himself twice to a pre-teen girl in 1973, according to PEOPLE (via E! Online).
“When the girl and I were watching TV alone, I moved her hand in such a way that caused her to touch me inappropriately,” he writes. “It was a completely impulsive act, and it’s haunted me ever since to think of what I put her through.”
