An video of Game of Thrones' Jason Momoa making a joke about loving his role on the show because it allowed him to "rape handsome women" has gone viral. During a press conference to promote "Game of Thrones", the actor allegedly said that being able to "rape handsome women" as Khal Drogo is what he loved most in working for the series.

Although he used to be a fan-favorite character of "Game of Thrones" fans, many were surprised to learn about his rape joke after it resurfaced in the wake of #Harvey Weinstein's sexual assault scandal.
