George Takei says he’s not that mad about Sulu being gay after all

George Takei has denied he's racist over Clarence Thomas 'blackface' comments

George Takei has clarified his position on Sulu being gay in the new Star Trek film.

The creators behind Star Trek: Beyond revealed fan favorite character Sulu would be gay in tribute to Takei, and the monumental announcement was met largely with praise.

But the unlikely criticism came from the original Sulu actor.

Takei took to Facebook to clarify what he meant when he voiced his ‘displeasure’, and he insists it was just a disagreement as to how he personally would have introduced a LGBTI character.

He said: ‘Let me be clear: I am not disappointed that there is a gay character in Star Trek. On the contrary, as I made clear, I am delighted that the Star Trek franchise has addressed this issue, which is truly one of diversity.

‘It is thrilling to know that future generations will not see LGBTs go wholly unrepresented in the Trek universe.’
