In the aftermath of damning revelations of abuse by Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein, victims have stepped forward to share their own painful stories, and those with a history of inappropriate comments and behavior are getting loudly called out.

"Damn you Jason Momoa thought you'd be one of the good guys".

In the tweet and video included here, Momoa can be seen sitting at the Comic-Con panel with his "Game of Thrones" co-stars, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke and Lena Headey.

That now includes actor Jason Momoa, made famous by his role as the burly Dothraki lord Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones. The video was shared again on social media during the week, forcing Ben to publicly apologised to Hilarie.

During Game of Thrones' panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Momoa joked that he loved working on the show because he "got to rape lovely women".

Gunman opens fire at Swedish marketplace
According to Swedish state television SVT, city of Trelleborg, located in south of country, opened fire with a gun. They said several people were injured at different locations. "But we are at the scene and investigating".

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. He said he had awoken in Australia to see the "justified reactions" to his distasteful joke made in 2011.

"As far as Sci-Fi and Fantasy, I love that genre", Momoa says in the video.

He also plays Aquaman in the film Justice League, set to be released next month.

"I am severely disappointed in myself at the insensitivity of my remarks that day", he says.

"I know my sincerest apology now won't take away those hurtful words", he continued. "It is unacceptable and I sincerely apologise with a heavy heart for the words I said", he said in a fresh statement.
