Jason Momoa joked that he loved pretending to "rape handsome women" when he play Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones.

But fans argued over whether Momoa was being unfairly targeted for a years-old comment, or if he deserved to be vilified for contributing to a culture that's comfortable joking about assault.

Emilia Clarke (plays Daenerys Targaryen), Kit Harington (Jon Snow) and Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) were seen holding their heads in their hands. "But the good news was I'm not a rapist".
