Momoa was speaking on a Comic-Con panel in 2011 with some fellow cast members on Game of Thrones.
While discussing why he enjoys working in the science fiction and fantasy genres, he makes a cringe-worthy quip about rape that has not aged well.
“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 beautiful women,” Momoa said.
Most of the other panel members covered their faces or shook their heads while smirking or laughing,
In that interview, Momoa was discussing a controversial and graphic sex scene early on in the series.
