After Ben Affleck’s cringe-worthy video of him behaving inappropriately with a female TV host resurfaced on Thursday, another video of his co-star from Justice League, Jason Momoa talking about why he enjoyed being on Game Of Thrones, is making the rounds on the internet.
The actor can be heard and seen making awful jokes about rape in the clip.
When someone from the audience asked how he liked working on the show, Momoa said he loved it as there are so many things one can't do in real life like "getting to rape beautiful women."
The video, which is from the Game of Thrones panel during 2011 San Diego Comic Con panel, shows Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and creator DB Weiss and David Benioff answering audience questions.
When asked about how he liked working on the show, Momoa counted ‘getting to rape beautiful women’ as one of the perks as he pointed towards Clarke, who sat right beside him.
The actor, who played Khal Drogo on the hit HBO show, was heard making cringe-worthy rape jokes as his fellow panelists awkwardly looked away.
“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 beautiful women,” he said.
In 2011, Momoa spoke further on the subject of rape in an interview with the New York Post.
“Yeah, I’m raping Emilia [Clarke]” he said. “I love her, but I’m hurting her and she’s crying. We could have made it longer, but you get the idea. I’m not a rapist. I prefer my women to enjoy sex.”
Here is the video:
The resurfaced video received a lot of criticism on social media, following which, the actor apologized for his comments in an Instagram post.
