From intergalactic fame to big Internet name, George Takei has become a crusader against hate on social media - and resistance is futile.

While George carved out most of his legacy as Hikaru Sulu in the original Star Trek series, he's found a new life at 79 years-old as one of the most 'liked' people on Facebook, with over 10 million fans hanging off his every post. He's supremely witty, and is never short on scathing comebacks when Internet trolls attack.

George is also an outspoken advocate for LGBTQ rights and racial equality. As both a gay man and a Japanese-American growing up during World War II, he's seen his fair share of discrimination, and he fights against it fiercely. He recently launched a Care2 petition asking people to stand up for Muslims in the US aimed at the incoming president, Donald Trump, and is less than 3000 supporters away from achieving his goal of 160,000.

Live long and prosper, George! (h/t)

No man should sexually assault a woman- if they do, there must be consequences- perhaps loss of citizenship or a year in jail!
