After a video surfaced Thursday of Jason Momoa making a crude rape joke in 2011, the "Aquaman" star apologized on his Instagram account, saying: "I made a truly tasteless comment".

"Oh Jason Momoa, we were all rooting for you, and then you go and make a f****g rape joke", said a fan of the actor.

The video in question showed the actor saying he enjoyed working on the hit HBO show "Game of Thrones" because he got to "rape attractive women".
