Amy Schumer Responds After Ashley Graham Calls Her Out for "Double Standard"

John Cho Reveals Sulu Is Gay in "Star Trek Beyond"; George Takei Disapproves

(NEW YORK) -- As a "nod" to the sexuality of the actor who originally portrayed him, George Takei, it appears Star Trek's USS Enterprise helmsman, Hikaru Sulu, as portrayed by John Cho in the rebooted sci-fi film series, is gay. "I liked the approach," Cho told Australia's Herald Sun of how the character's background was referenced in the upcoming Star Trek Beyond, "which was not to make a big thing out of it."

Cosby’s team argues that the police statements are hearsay, and that the ruling therefore wasn’t fair because Constand herself didn’t testify. Though sexual assault victims do not generally testify in pretrial hearings, the Pennsylvania law on allowing hearsay in order to…
