The famous ‘Star Trek’ actor called Twilight ‘really, really bad.’ Was he out of line?

George Takei, best known as Hikaru Sulu on Star Trek, made a video addressing his former co-star William Shatner and Star Wars’ Carrie Fisher, who have been feuding over whose franchise is better, to focus on the bigger problem in the science fiction world today: Twilight.

George claims that what is needed today is “Star Peace” and says,”for there is an ominous mutual threat to all science fiction. It’s called Twilight and it is really, really bad.”

He goes on to insult Kristen Stewart‘s and Robert Pattinson‘s characters and explains, “Gone is any sense of heroism, camaraderie or epic battles. In its place, we have vampires that sparkle, moan and go to high school.”

In addition to his mocking the series, he thinks Twilight doesn’t mentally stimulate the audience’s minds. “Sci-fi fans be warned, there are no great stories, characters or profound life lessons to be found in Twilight. Nooo…In Twilight, the only message that rings through loud and clear is: ‘Does my boyfriend like me?'”

He muses that he and his fellow ‘star folks’ should band together to end this ‘mutual threat.’

Do you think George Takei is being too harsh, HollywoodLifers?
