As an homage to George Takei, the writers for the new Star Trek movie decided to make Sulu openly gay in the upcoming film, which would be a lovely tribute, except for the fact that Takei totally hates the idea. Takei played Hikaru Sulu in the original Star Trek TV series and in the early films, and despite being out and proud himself, told The Hollywood Reporter that he found the news of Sulu's sexuality to be "really unfortunate."
