George Takei Talks Shatner and his Experience in a WWII Internment Camp
George Takei and William Shatner don't get along so good. Mr. Sulu recently opened up about it on the internet. Shatner once made a youtube video complaining about not being invited to Takei's wedding.

Now, as far as social media: On Facebook, George Takei is a Facebook favorite with over 8.6 million followers. Shatner has under a million. Mr. Sulu wins. Captain Kirk wins Twitter with 2.19 million followers. Sulu has 1.6 million. I love them both.
George was a imprisoned in a World War II Japanese internment camp when he was 5. He's made a play about it called "Allegiance". He made it to honor his fellow Japanese prisoners and calls it "very, very personal. I consider this my legacy project," Click here to read the full story. "Allegiance" is scheduled to open on Broadway in October. Takei portrays his own Grandfather in the play.
The hatchet between the two is already buried, according to Takei. Asked if he could forgive Shatner, he said "I don't need to forgive him. I've already invited him to the opening night of Allegiance."
I love that he took a horrible situation and crafted something positive out of it.
