Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa sorry for 'tasteless' rape joke

Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa sorry for 'tasteless' rape joke

An old clip of Jason Momoa claiming that he loves his role on Game Of Thrones as it allows him to "rape handsome women" has resurfaced.

That now includes actor Jason Momoa, made famous by his role as the burly Dothraki lord Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones.

When asked about his favourite parts of acting on GoT, Jason Momoa, who played Khal Drogo, replied that he loves being able to "get away" with "raping handsome women". Perhaps he sees that in even more stark relief in light of the accusations his Justice League costar Ben Affleck is facing.

A clip of the incident has resurfaced online in the wake of allegations that Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed and assaulted numerous women over a career of over 20 years.




The video has been shared widely on social media since Weinstein's downfall, with one user calling it "horrific".

During Game of Thrones' panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Momoa joked that he loved working on the show because he "got to rape attractive women".

In light of the anger at Momoa's comments, he wrote that reactions were "justified". "But the good news was I'm not a rapist. I don't like women crying when I'm making love to them". "I prefer my women to enjoy sex", he said.

Momoa will next appear as Aquaman in the upcoming Justice League film.
