Amidst criticism, Jason Momoa apologizes.
A few days after his visit to Rome, Jason Momoa posted a video through Just Jared apologizing for the photos he took in the Sistine Chapel after he received criticism by some. He gave the following statement:
“I just also wanted to say, if you ever felt that I disrespected your culture, it wasn’t my intention. I came here when I was 19 or 20 to experience the Sistine Chapel. I’ve always wanted to and now that I can, I gave a wonderful donation to bring my friends and crew because we only had a couple days off to experience these places. And then I found people wanted to take pictures with me, which is very odd, during a trip to the Vatican with all this wonder and they want to take pictures with me, which I don’t get, but regardless, I did. I was very respectful and I asked for permission from what I thought, would be okay. I would never want to do anything to disrespect someone’s culture. If I did, I apologize. It was not my intention. I paid to have that private moment and gave a nice donation to the church. I love you. I’m sorry if I offended you.”
Along with production on Fast X, Jason Momoa will reprise his role as Arthur Curry in the highly-anticipated DC Extended Universe sequel, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. The film is set to hit theaters on March 17, 2023.
