His apology comes after footage showing Momoa joking about his character and the "rape handsome women" while speaking at a Comic-Con panel resurfaced online. I've had the best group of women in my life-and if the law didn't take care of them, what would you do?

Game of Thrones has been constantly criticised for its portrayal of rape throughout the series.

The actor and his fellow "Game of Thrones" co-stars were speaking on a panel at Comic-Con when he made the comment.

The Momoa clip resurfaced as more than a dozen women have come forward to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault and harassment.

".As far as sci-fi and fantasy, I love that there's so many things you can do", Momoa said at the time, "like rip someone's tongue out of their throat and get away with it and rape attractive women".

Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for Momoa for comment.

The video has been shared widely on social media since Weinstein's downfall, with one user calling it "horrific".

Emilia Clarke (plays Daenerys Targaryen), Kit Harington (Jon Snow) and Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) were seen holding their heads in their hands. I love her, but I'm hurting her and she's crying.

We're pleased to see that he has owned up for his comments and offered an apology, but the comment shouldn't have been made in the first place. "I prefer my women to enjoy sex", he said.

Momoa - who also plays Aquaman in the DC Extended Universe - has not yet responded to the controversy.
