    Jason Momoa Issues Apology For Posting Photos At Sistine Chapel

    Dune actor, Jason Momoa has apologized after receiving heavy criticism on social media. This has to do with his recent trip to the Sistine Chapel.

    Momoa has traveled to Italy to shoot for his role in Universal Pictures’ upcoming Fast X (Part of the Fast & Furious’ series). He is set to star opposite Vin Diesel and has been posting photos and footage on his Instagram of him in Italy. One of these also had him visiting the famed chapel in Vatican City.

    Momoa’s fans and social media users were not happy about this visit of his. Most of his comments on that post said that “visitors are typically prohibited from photographing the space, which is sacred to those of the Catholic faith and houses Michelangelo’s prized artwork.” Keeping this in mind Momoa later shares a video on Saturday of him apologizing.

    The Aquaman star in the video says, “if you ever felt that I disrespected your culture, it wasn’t my intention.

    He goes on to say, “I found people who wanted to take pictures with me, which is very odd, during a trip to the Vatican with all this splendor, and they want to take pictures with me, which I don’t get, but regardless, I did. I was very respectful, and I asked for permission — what I thought would be OK. I would never want to do anything to disrespect someone’s culture, so if I did, I apologize. It wasn’t my intention.”

    Momoa concluded with, “I definitely paid to have that private moment and gave a nice donation to the church. I love you — sorry if I offended you. My apologies.

    He talks about the experience fondly and says, it was “the time of my life”. He further adds, “I’m so happy to be working for Universal, and obviously Vin and the whole crew picking me.”
