Jason Momoa had the perfect response to the the internet trolls who think the Aquaman actor has a “dad bod.”
Aquaman star Jason Momoa is usually ripped with chiseled abs for his role as Arthur Curry in the DC Extended Universe. But in early July, Jason Momoa was attacked by body shamers after an image of the actor hit the web, revealing that he’s currently missing his abs and retaining a lot of water weight. The noticeable change isn’t uncommon for actors like Jason Momoa as he’s in his Aquaman offseason and doesn’t have to maintain his superhero physique.
Last week, Jason Momoa gave a response to the body shamers that could be considered very tamed, but now he’s responding in a much more aggresive way. The Aquaman actor took to social media to show off his dad bod in a hilarious video directed at the internet trolls who attacked him earlier this summer. In the video, Jason Momoa says “how’s that for a dad body?” while simultaneously showing off his new physique. You can check out the video below.
