Shatner

Former “Star Trek” co-stars William Shatner and George Tekai are extending their feud and exchanging insults following the 90-year-old’s recent space expedition on Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin capsule.

On Thursday Oct. 14, Takei took a jab at Shatner, telling Page Six, “He’s boldly going where other people have gone before.”

The 84-year-old. discussed his former co-star during the opening of “Thoughts of a Colored Man”on Wednesday night, saying, “He’s a guinea pig, 90 years old and it’s important to find out what happens.”

“So 90 years old is going to show a great deal more on the wear and tear on the human body, so he’ll be a good specimen to study,” Takei said. “Although he’s not the fittest specimen of 90 years old, so he’ll be a specimen that’s unfit!”

On Friday, Shatner responded to Takei’s comments on Twitter, writing, “Don’t hate George.”

“The only time he gets press is when he talks bad about me,” the tweet read. “He claims 50+ years ago I took away a camera angle that denied him 30 more seconds of prime time TV. I’m giving it back to him now by letting him spew his hatred for the world to see! Bill the 🐷.”

Don’t hate George. The only time he gets press is when he talks bad about me. He claims 50+ years ago I took away a camera angle that denied him 30 more seconds of prime time TV. 🤷🏼‍♂️ I’m giving it back to him now by letting him spew his hatred for the world to see!🤣 Bill the 🐷
