William Shatner took a shatner on George Takei this week by posting an interview on YouTube discussing why he wasn’t invited to Takei’s recent wedding. Among the things Captain James T. Kirk said about Sulu were:
“There is such a sickness there. It’s so patently [mispronounced 'pay-tently' --ed.] obvious that there is a psychosis there.”
“You would think he had this epiphany and say – because he and I don’t have many years left in this world – ‘I wish him well. I’m so happy that I wish him well.’ But instead what he does is he makes this big deal about not inviting me to his wedding. If I was such a terrible force in his life – even some 40-odd years later, because I’ve not seen him – that I effect his marriage where he has to isolate it, what kind of sickness is going on in the man?”
“It’s sad. I feel nothing but pity for him.”
You can watch the full interview below:
In response, Takei told Entertainment Tonight that he had in fact invited Shatner to the wedding, calling The Shat’s video rant, “silliness.” And we’re inclined to believe George. Because he may not know how to sing fer shit, but he seems a whole lot less sick and psychotic than the puffy, suspenders-wearing, sausage-fingered weirdo-who-doth-protest-too-much in that video.
