Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa slammed for rape joke, in wake of Weinstein sex scandal

 

Momoa, who also stars in Netflix series Frontier and as DC superhero Aquaman in the forthcoming Justice League film, has since apologised for the comments.

“I awoke in Australia to the justified reactions by many people to a distasteful joke I made years ago in Hall H for which I am sorry,” he wrote on Instagram yesterday. “I am still severely disappointed in myself at the insensitivity of my remarks that day. I know my sincerest apology now won’t take away those hurtful words.

“Rape and sexual harassment can reach anyone and I have seen first hand its painful torment among members of my own family and friends. I made a truly tasteless comment. It is unacceptable and I sincerely apologise.”
