Debate erupts over resurfaced video of Jason Momoa making a rape joke

Momoa then jokes: "And rape attractive women and have them fall in love with me, you know what I mean?"

He was on the panel with fellow stars from HBO's Game of Thrones.

Footage has emerged of Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa joking that one of the perks of the show is that he gets to "rape attractive women".

Actors Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa and Ben Affleck during the Justice League autograph signing at Comic-Con International 2017.

During Game of Thrones' panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Momoa joked that he loved working on the show because he "got to rape lovely women".

Industry watchers, meanwhile, said the absence of Samsung's top leaders cast a cloud over the company's long-term strategy. Sales also probably surged 29.65 percent to 62 trillion won in the July-September period compared to a year earlier.

Momoa has taken Instagram to say sorry for the rape joke, which was reposted on Twitter in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal.

Jason Mamoa will play Aquaman in Justice League, before getting his own solo-film series, set to begin in 2018.

Social media users were quick to react with disappointment after seeing the footage. 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. I'd note that the show runners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, who frequently employ brutal rape scenes as plot devices on the show, are laughing too. "But the good news was I'm not a rapist".

"As far as Sci-Fi and Fantasy, I love that genre", Momoa says in the video.
