Jason Momoa, who’s supposed to be on vacation, is facing “dad bod” bodyshaming comments.
A picture of Momoa that
he posted on Instagram seems to be the culprit in this latest controversy.
One celebrity news site found a couple instigators who posted messages like “what happened to his abs?” and “This is what it looks like when he lets himself go.”
A comment from someone whose name was blurred out was pegged to a story online with the text: “Someone needs to start lifting again.”
There doesn’t seem to be much here about Momoa’s look that screams “dad bod,” honestly. And even if some say that’s what he has, the actor is definitely not out of shape.
Any guy would be happy to have this physique, so it’s difficult to see how his current look could be considered “bad” or “dad-bod-ish.”
I love when people body-shame incredibly ripped male celebrities because it reaffirms my fitness regimen of: “Why bother?” If Jason Momoa isn’t jacked enough for people, maybe all bodies are just bad. What a relief!

People sprang to Momoa’s defense, saying the man should be able to go on vacation looking however he wants.
Over the years, Momoa has gained oodles of fans the world over — he was the guy who had a Girl Scout cookie named after him, for instance.
How could anyone speak negatively of Jason Momoa, or his still-ripped body?
Is there some particular reason social media is picking on Momoa? There has to be more going on in celebrity gossip news than Momoa’s alleged dad bod.
Reveal yourself — Momoa’s not scared.
who are the people “body-shaming” Jason Momoa and did we have to create content and an entire discourse around a few random people’s online comments
