Momoa's comments came at the 2011 Game Of Thrones panel at San Diego Comic Con: "As far as sci-fi and fantasy go as a genre there is so many things you can do... like rape handsome women". Although he used to be a fan-favorite character of "Game of Thrones" fans, many were surprised to learn about his rape joke after it resurfaced in the wake of #Harvey Weinstein's sexual assault scandal.
The Game of Thrones star was speaking at the convention's iconic Hall H when he said getting to "rape attractive women" and get away with it was one reason he loved his job.
Bhandup By-election Results: BJP's Jagruti Patil Wins By
The by-election in ward number 116 was necessitated by the death of sitting Congress corporator Pramila Patil on 25 April. Enthused by the outcome, BJP leaders said they would soon have more corporators in the BMC house than the Shiv Sena .
Momoa is going to be roundly criticized for this six-year-old joke, because the public's attention is now aimed at finally being appalled by a corrupt Hollywood culture that pretty much everyone has known about for a long time. I am still severely disappointed in myself at the insensitivity of my remarks that day. "It is unacceptable and I sincerely apologize with a heavy heart for the words I said".
"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". 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.

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. I'm not a rapist. "I prefer my women to enjoy sex", he said.
