Jason Momoa's Tasteless 'Game Of Thrones' Rape Joke Resurfaces Amid Weinstein Scandal

Share

Footage has emerged of Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa joking that one of the perks of the show is that he gets to "rape lovely women". "I don't like women crying when I'm making love to them".

The video in question showed the actor saying he enjoyed working on the hit HBO show "Game of Thrones" because he got to "rape lovely women".

In July, "Game of Thrones" star Sophie Turner, whose character Sana was raped by husband Ramsey Bolton on their wedding night in season 5, said she'd never really thought about the situation before.

As he spoke about the fantasy genre he said: "But as far as sci-fi and fantasy, I love that genre because there are so many things you can do, like rip someone's tongue out of their throat and get away with it and rape handsome women".

Another thing that happened at San Diego Comic-Con: Jason Momoa made some comments about rape.

In light of the anger at Momoa's comments, he wrote that reactions were "justified".

However, in the midst of multiple sexual harassment scandals hitting Hollywood, no one is laughing now, and Momoa was taken to task on social media.

Emilia Clarke (plays Daenerys Targaryen), Kit Harington (Jon Snow) and Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) were seen holding their heads in their hands.

We're pleased to see that he has owned up for his comments and offered an apology, but the comment shouldn't have been made in the first place.

Momoa is set to play super hero Aquaman in the upcoming Justice League film along side Ben Affleck, who has been accused of groping several women in the wake of the Weinstein allegations.
