Well, Caroline, hate to disappoint you, but we’re guessing you didn’t think it’d go over like this.

In case you hadn’t heard, John Cho, who portrays Hikaru Sulu in the rebooted “Star Trek” movies, told media that his character in “Star Trek Beyond” will be revealed as gay. A lot of people assumed that George Takei, Sulu’s portrayer in the original series, would be thrilled at the news.

They were wrong:

More from the Hollywood Reporter:

Except Takei wasn’t overjoyed. He had never asked for Sulu to be gay. In fact, he’d much prefer that he stay straight. “I’m delighted that there’s a gay character,” he tells The Hollywood Reporter. “Unfortunately, it’s a twisting of Gene’s creation, to which he put in so much thought. I think it’s really unfortunate.”

Takei first learned of Sulu’s recent same-sex leanings last year, when Cho called him to reveal the big news. Takei tried to convince him to make a new character gay instead. “I told him, ‘Be imaginative and create a character who has a history of being gay, rather than Sulu, who had been straight all this time, suddenly being revealed as being closeted.'” (Takei had enough negative experiences inside the Hollywood closet, he says, and strongly feels a character who came of age in the 23rd Century would never find his way inside one.)

Well, Takei’s very reasonable take didn’t sit well with people who know what’s best for his most famous character:

Yeah! Him, of all people!

That’s cute. Really.

Fortunately, there are still plenty of other folks who haven’t lost their minds:

Yeah. It is.
