Momoa then jokes: "And rape lovely women and have them fall in love with me, you know what I mean?"

This week, a 2011 video of Jason Momoa uttering a tasteless joke began making its rounds around the web again.

The video, taken from a San Diego Comic Con panel in 2011, shows Momoa joking that he loved his role as Khal Drogo on the HBO series because he got to "rape attractive women".

That now includes actor Jason Momoa, made famous by his role as the burly Dothraki lord Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones.

During Game of Thrones' panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Momoa joked that he loved working on the show because he "got to rape handsome women". 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.

Ben Affleck, who will star with Momoa in the upcoming Justice League film, has also been forced to admit he "acted inappropriately" and apologised to One Tree Hill actress Hilarie Burton after she spoke of a 2003 incident in which he groped her on live TV.
