Jason Momoa has apologised for making a disgusting joke about raping women on Game Of Thrones in 2011.

A clip from Comic Con six years ago resurfaced yesterday amidst the sexual assault and harassment allegations made against Harvey Weinstein, showing the actor making a very distasteful comment on the Comic Con panel in Hall H.

While discussing his character Khal Drogo, Momoa said: ‘But as far as sci-fi and fantasy, I love that there’s so many things you can do, like rip someone’s tongue out of their throat and get away with it and rape beautiful women.’

The room burst into laughter, while his castmates – including Emilia Clarke, whose character Daenerys was raped by Khal Drogi in Game Of Thrones – looked embarrassed.

Jason took to Instagram to apologise for the comment as the clip went viral.

The 38-year-old wrote: ‘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 APOLOGISE Aloha j

‘I am still severely disappointed in myself at the insensitivity of my remarks that day. I know my sincerest apology now won’t take away those hurtful words.

‘Rape and sexual harassment can reach anyone and I have seen first hand its painful torment among members of my own family and friends.

‘I made a truly tasteless comment. It is unacceptable and I sincerely apologise with a heavy heart for the words I said.

‘All apologies, Jason.’

The old ‘joke’ by Jason is just one of the disturbing moments to resurface amidst the Weinstein scandal.

A video showing Ben Affleck groping One Tree Hill star Hilarie Burton on TRL re-emerged, with Affleck apologising for his actions.

Meanwhile, a host of celebrities have spoken out about their own experiences of harassment, from Weinstein to other Hollywood execs.

And it’s not just the female stars – Terry Crews, Rob Schneider and James Van Der Beek have also opened up about harassment at the hands of men in Hollywood.

Harvey Weinstein: The allegations that helped lead to the sacking of the Hollywood heavyweight

A number of women have so far come forward to accuse Hollywood movie producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual abuse during their time working with the 65-year-old.

As more brave ladies come forward with their accounts, we sum up which women in the film industry have so far spoken out against Harvey, accusing him of assault or harassment.

Rose McGowan

Rose McGowan is the highest-profile of Weinstein’s accusers, with it emerging she reportedly sued the movie producer for making advances on her during the production of the Weinstein-produced 1996 teen slasher film Scream.

McGowan claims she was abused by Weinstein inside a hotel room at the Sundance Film Festival in 1997. Rose has previously claimed she was raped by a studio head and on Sunday, she tweeted about being abused by a ‘monster’.

It is claimed she signed a non-disclosure agreement after filing the lawsuit after allegedly being paid off by Weinstein.

Rose has since tweeted her thanks to The New York Times for ‘saving lives’ by reporting the accusations against Harvey.

Ashley Judd

Ashley Judd claims that during the filming of Weinstein’s movie Kiss the Girls, he repeatedly asked her to watch him as he showered and offered to give her a massage in his hotel room.

She says she remembers thinking at the time: ‘How do I get out of the room as fast as possible without alienating Harvey Weinstein?’

Judd spoke out about Harvey this week as The New York Times posted the allegations. She said in a statement: ‘Women have been talking about Harvey amongst ourselves for a long time, and it’s simply beyond time to have the conversation publicly.’

Laura Madden

Laura Madden is an ex-employee of Weinstein’s and alleges he asked her to give him massages from 1991 and onwards. She told the NYT: ‘It was so manipulative. You constantly question yourself – am I the one who is the problem?’

Elizabeth Karlsen

Like O’Connor, producer Elizabeth Karlsen shared her experience of claims she had been told by female staff. She claims a young female executive told her thirty years ago how she found Weinstein on her bed in a house rented by Miramax.

Emily Nestor

Emily Nestor was a temporary employee at The Weinstein company when she was allegedly invited to the same hotel as Judd and made another offer. Nestor claims that she had been offered a career boost if she accepted Weinstein’s advances in 2014.

Ambra Battilana

Italian actress and model Ambra Battilana also claimed to the NYT that Weinstein had asked her if her breasts were real in a meeting in New York in 2015, before he allegedly grabbed her chest while putting his hands up her skirt. She is another victim Weinstein apparently paid off after police failed to press charges.

An audio recording made by Ambra later emerged, featuring Weinstein pleading with her to enter a bathroom and watch him have a shower.

Lauren O’Connor

Another former employee of TWC, Lauren O’Connor spoke out in 2015, telling executives that women were faced with a ‘toxic environment’. It followed her being told by a female assistant that Weinstein had coerced her into giving him a massage while he was naked. She was apparently left ‘crying and very distraught’. O’connor had written in her report: ‘There is a toxic environment for women at this company.’

Lauren Sivan

Lauren Sivan claims Weinstein masturbated in a restaurant after trapping her there with him, climaxing in front of her during the incident in 2007 when she refused to kiss him, reports the Huffington Post.

She has since defended herself on Twitter for keeping silent for 10 years.

Liza Campbell

Another hotel incident was reported by Liza Campbell, a freelance script reader, who claims Harvey invited her to get in the bath with him, according to The Sunday Times.

Romola Garai

Romola Garai stepped forward to document her own experience with Weinstein on Monday October 9, after many other allegations had already been made.

The 35-year-old actress recalled how, at the age of 18, she had also had to ‘audition’ with Harvey Weinstein as he sat in his dressing gown in a hotel room in London.

‘Like every other woman in the industry, I’ve had an “audition” with Harvey Weinstein, where I’d actually already had the audition but you had to be personally approved by him,’ said Garai. ‘So I had to go to his hotel room in the Savoy, and he answered the door in his bathrobe. I was only 18. I felt violated by it, it has stayed very clearly in my memory.’

Asia Argento

Asia Argento, an Italian film actress and director, claimed that Weinstein ‘forcibly performed oral sex on her’ but alleged that she refused to speak out because ‘he has crushed a lot of people’.

‘That’s why this story—in my case, it’s twenty years old, some of them are older—has never come out,’ she added.

‘The thing with being a victim is I felt responsible. Because if I were a strong woman, I would have kicked him in the balls and run away. But I didn’t. And so I felt responsible.’

Gwnyeth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow claimed she suffered sexual abuse by Harvey Weinstein in the 1990s.

She detailed how, after being cast in Weinstein’s Jane Austen adaptation of Emma, he touched her and invited her into his hotel room for a massage.

The mum-of-two, who also starred in Weinstein’s Oscar-winning movie Shakespeare In Love, which was a Miramax Films production, claimed she had been asked to attend a meeting in his hotel room when he made the advance. ‘I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified,’ Paltrow told the New York Times.

Gwyneth, aged 22 at the time, bravely rejected his offer and then told her then-boyfriend Pitt, then aged 32, what had happened. At a party in 1995 Pitt then approached Weinstein and, without worrying about his own career in Hollywood, told him in no uncertain terms to never touch Paltrow again.

Representatives for Pitt confirmed the story.

Angelina Jolie

In an email to the New York Times, which broke the story of decades of harassment by Weinstein on Hollywood women, Angelina also documented her own experience.

She said: ‘I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth. And as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did. This behavior towards women in any field, any country is unacceptable.’

Cara Delevingne

Cara Delevingne joined the list of actresses speaking out against Harvey Weinstein in a late-night Instagram post on Wednesday October 11, six days after the initial allegations emerged.

Also claiming sexual harassment, the former model turned actress recalled how, when she first began working in Hollywood, she received an ‘off and uncomfortable’ call from Weinstein asking her about who she had slept with of her group of friends, before telling her that if she were indeed gay she would never ‘make it as an actress in Hollywood’

She then revealed how a year or two later she she had to meet with regarding a film she was working on and how he ‘began to brag about all the actresses he had slept with and how he had made their careers and spoke about other inappropriate things of a sexual nature’.

Cara claims he invited her to his room and his assistant told her that she should go to the bedroom. In the bedroom there was another women and he then asked the two of them to kiss.
