Jason Momoa has apologized for his joke about raping women

Jason Mamoa I love raping beautiful women on Game of Thrones

Momoa is about to hit the silver screen as Aquaman in Justice League, but back in 2011, he was caught on video at a Comic-Con panel joking that he liked the sci-fi and fantasy genre because "there's so many thing you can do, like rip someone's tongue out of their throat and get away with it, and rape attractive women".

"Tonight i saw a disgusting clip of jason momoa making a rape joke and i am absolutely repulsed".

For those who never caught the earlier seasons of Game Of Thrones, Momoa's character Khal Drogo engaged in graphic non-consensual sex with Daenerys Targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke.

He was on the panel with fellow stars from HBO's Game of Thrones.

"There's so many things you can do, like rip someone's tongue out of their throat, and get away with it, and rape attractive women".

"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", Jason said in his apology on Instagram.

The clip surfaced in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, where the dishonored Hollywood powerhouse has been accused by almost 30 women of sexual misconduct.

Momoa elaborated on the comments in an interview with the New York Post.

Social media users were quick to react with disappointment after seeing the footage. We could have made it longer, but you get the idea.

It comes as Momoa's co star in the upcoming Justice League film, Ben Affleck, admitted he "acted inappropriately" and apologised to One Tree Hill's Hilarie Burton.
