Jason Momoa is getting destroyed on social media after video surfaced from a 2011 Comic-Con panel in which he joked about getting to “rape beautiful women” while portraying his character on “Game of Thrones.”
Momoa was speaking on a “Game of Thrones” panel during the first season of the show when he played the legendary Khal Drogo.
The question asked was how Momoa felt about working on a fantasy show … he says he loves being able to “get away” with so much stuff, like ripping someone’s tongue out of their throat, and getting to “rape beautiful women.”
The crowd roars with laughter, then it becomes a little uncomfortable. All Momoa’s co-stars immediately put their heads down.
Thursday morning, the video surfaced on Twitter, and fans of Mamoa immediately went nuclear.

Obviously, the Harvey Weinstein scandal has rocked Hollywood, and everyone’s skeletons are coming out of the closet.
We reached out to Momoa for comment, so far no word back.
