William Shatner has clapped back at George Takei, who had some nasty things to say about the 90-year-old’s flight to space last week.

On Twitter Friday night, Shatner tweeted, “Don’t hate George. The only time he gets press is when he talks bad about me.”

He added, “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 [pig emoji].”

This comes after Takei addressed Shatner’s historic blastoff by telling Page Six, “He’s boldly going where other people have gone before.”

He also said Shatner was only “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. Although he’s not the fittest specimen of 90 years old, so he’ll be a specimen that’s unfit!” 

Hot Takes: 

  • These two have been feuding for decades and it’s kind of awesome.
  • George might find his Amazon deliveries delayed.
  • Are you Team Takei or Team Shatner?
