Jason Momoa's name just got thrown into this conversation for a disturbing clip from Comic Con 2011 making the rounds on Twitter. I've had the best group of women in my life-and if the law didn't take care of them, what would you do?
Game of Thrones has been constantly criticised for its portrayal of rape throughout the series. Momoa is on stage with a number of his co-stars, including Peter Dinklage and Emilia Clarke, and is commenting on the kind of extreme violence featured in the show.
"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 lovely women", he said.
The clip comes after the opening of Hollywood's flood gates as women begin to speak out against men such as Harvey Weinstein and Ben Affleck, who have used their positions of power to abuse and harass.
"I awoke in Australia to the justified reactions by many people to a distasteful joke I made years ago in Hall H for which I am sorry", Jason said in his apology on Instagram.
As of late Thursday morning, Momoa had yet to comment on the uproar.
Momoa - who also plays Aquaman in the DC Extended Universe - has not yet responded to the controversy. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time, ' Chapman said in a statement.
