Jason Momoa is CANCELLED after this joke (?) about getting to ‘rape beautiful women’
Another one bites the dust
by Katie Way
The graphic depictions of nonconsensual sex on Game of Thrones might bother some critics, but at least one person in the show seems fully onboard: Jason Momoa, best known for playing warlord Khal Drogo in the show's first season.
In a clip that recently surfaced (wonder why?) Momoa can be seen at what appears to be San Diego Comic-Con's Game of Thrones panel in 2011, joking about all of the freedom a fantasy world offers. Which like, yeah, that's why people like fantasy.
After all, Game of Thrones's Westeros is chock full of magic, political intrigue and even dragons! That's what Momoa also likes about fantasy as a genre, right?
Wrong! Watch the clip below:

In it, Momoa can be heard saying the following:
But as far as sci-fi and fantasy… there’s so many things you can do and get away with it, like rip someone’s tongue out of their throat, and rape beautiful women, you know?
Oh. Okay. So like, not the dragons?
Momoa's comment receives a wave of hearty laughter from the audience, but his a few of his fellow panelists, like Kit Harington and Peter Dinklage, are visibly uncomfortable.
In light of recent revelations about Harvey Weinstein and the men of Hollywood as a whole, being on the record making rape jokes is not a great look for Aquaman.

There will always be people waiting in the wings to insist that rape jokes don't encourage violence against women.
They're just jokes. But joking about committing sexual assault is a textbook example of "punching down" with humor, making someone vulnerable the butt of the joke.
It's easy, it's boring, it's hurtful, and we are not here for it.

Or maybe both
by Amanda Ross
Travis Scott is the on the cover of GQ — but because most people in the GQ demo seeing the magazine at their local grocery checkout counter would look at a Travis Scott-covered issue and say, "Who the fuck is Travis Scott?", Kylie Jenner is also on the cover on GQ. Ugh, we love a…
