  • Games Of Thrones' Jason Momoa jokes about 'raping beautiful women' in old Comic Con clip

Actor Jason Momoa - better known as Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones - has found himself at the centre of controversy after footage recently emerged of him joking about rape.

"As far as sci-fi and fantasy go as a genre, there is so many things you can do", he says, "like rip someone's tongue out of their throats and get away with it".

Game of Thrones has been constantly criticised for its portrayal of rape throughout the series.

"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.

The clip of the Justice League actor resurfaced after a number of recent discussions of sexual harassment by men in Hollywood.

Thanks to the understandable outrage over long-hidden sexual allegations involving movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, male stars face having any embarrassing skeletons being pulled out of their proverbial closets and posted on social media.

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

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

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.

Ben Affleck, who will star with Momoa in the upcoming Justice League film, has also been forced to admit he "acted inappropriately" and apologised to One Tree Hill actress Hilarie Burton after she spoke of a 2003 incident in which he groped her on live TV.
