Here's Footage Of 'Game Of Thrones' Star Jason Momoa Joking About Rape”

A video from a 2011 Comic-Con panel has resurfaced in which he jokes about getting to "rape attractive women" while portraying his fierce warlord character on "Game of Thrones".

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

The clip is a recording of a panel discussion at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con convention, when Momoa joked that he loved working on sci-fi and fantasy projects because he got to "rape lovely women".

Game of Thrones has been constantly criticised for its portrayal of rape throughout the series.

Momoa - who also plays Aquaman in the DC Extended Universe - has not yet responded to the controversy.

"As far as sci-fi and fantasy go as a genre, there is so many things you can do", he says, "like rip someone's tongue out of their throats and get away with it".

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

Other actors, including Momoa'sJustice League co-star Ben Affleck, have been forced to apologize for abusive behavior toward women in the aftermath of the Weinstein scandal.

Express.co.uk has contacted Jason Momoa's representative for comment. I love her, but I'm hurting her and she's crying. "Rape and sexual harassment can reach anyone and I have seen first hand its painful torment among members of my own family and friends". "But the good news was I'm not a rapist". Discussing the film in a 2014 interview with Entertainment Weekly he said, "The biggest thing is that I'm a father, and a husband, and a son, and a grandson".
