Old video of GoT's Jason Momoa joking about 'raping handsome women' resurfaces

Suicide Squad European Premiere- London

His apology comes after footage showing Momoa joking about his character and the "rape attractive women" while speaking at a Comic-Con panel resurfaced online.

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

The American actor, who plays Khal Drogo on the long-running HBO fantasy show, said filming rape scenes was an enjoyable aspect of working on the series.

Momoa's comments caught a lot of flak since being brought back into the public conscience, perhaps magnified by the sickening allegations of sexual abuse levelled at industry heavyweight Harvey Weinstein.

"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", he told the audience.

Momoa made the comment at San Diego Comic-Con in 2011, where both the actor and a portion of the crowd got a laugh out of it.

Others defended the clip, saying it was old and it was referring to his character in the show.

Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for Momoa for comment.

"Yeah, I'm raping Emilia [Clarke, who plays Daenerys]".

"Sexual assault wasn't something that had affected me or anybody I knew, so I was pretty blasé about the whole thing", she told the Sunday Times.

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. "But the good news was I'm not a rapist".

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