Jason Momoa joked that he loved pretending to "rape lovely women"

Samantha Bee

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.

A 2011 clip of Justice League star Jason Momoa joking about rape has sparked outrage.

In July, "Game of Thrones" star Sophie Turner, whose character Sana was raped by husband Ramsey Bolton on their wedding night in season 5, said she'd never really thought about the situation before. Momoa played Khal Drogo in the show, a role that included several rape scenes with co-star Emilia Clarke (who was also on the panel).

Both clips have become talking points as Hollywood continues to grapple with the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

The last issue raised in the letter reads: "FTII has been producing filmmakers who are working at various platforms". The development on the campus has coincided with Kher's appointment, which the students have questioned.

Jason Momoa has found himself in hot water for inappropriate comments he made during a 2011 Comic-Con panel.

"There's so many things you can do, like rip someone's tongue out of their throat and get away with it. rape a handsome woman, you know?"

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

But fans argued over whether Momoa was being unfairly targeted for a years-old comment, or if he deserved to be vilified for contributing to a culture that's comfortable joking about assault. I love her, but I'm hurting her and she's crying. "But the good news was I'm not a rapist". Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time, ' Chapman said in a statement.
