The Reason Behind Jason Momoa’s Apology
At first, it looked like nothing sort of a controversy, but the criticism came after Aquaman himself uploaded videos as well as footage of him visiting the holy place. It was posted on Instagram and fans found it disrespectful to a great extent.
As per the rules, no one is allowed to click photos or videos in this famous chapel of the holy Vatican City. The place is sacred for everyone who is Catholic and they are very sensitive about their faith. Besides, the place is also recognized as a treasure of artwork. It houses some of Michelangelo’s most prized artwork that is extremely private. The iconic artworks are spread throughout this Vatican City.
The social media users were quick to jump on this and commented about the importance of the situation. They were critical and accused Momoa of disrespecting and hurting the emotions of Catholics.
Why Did Momoa Visit Sistine Chapel?
Jason is currently shooting for his role in the upcoming film opposite Vin Diesel. The latest reports confirm that Momoa will be present at the Universal picture film, Fast X.
The entire team is in Italy for continuing with this high-profile project. It was probably during their casual visit that Momoa clicked on his social media. However, he soon realized the intensity of the situation.
The actor clicked photos under the beautiful and legendary Michelangelo paintings. The ceilings of the chapel definitely looked like something out of a dream. He posted the photos on 9th May, and captioned, “I LOVE YOU ITALY what a beautiful start to our day off enjoying ROMA.“
When Did Jason Momoa Apologize?
The star shared in a clip, “if you ever felt that I disrespected your culture, it wasn’t my intention.”
He explained the situation that during his day off from the shooting of the film, he proceeded to explore the land of art and even gave a monetary donation. The entire visit was arranged for all his friends as well as his crew members. On spotting the celeb, the other guests asked if they could click photos with the star himself.
He went 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 splendour, and they want to take pictures with me, which I don’t get, but regardless, I did,” Momoa added. “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.”
He explained, “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.
Though he didn’t take down the photos yet he made sure that his apologies do not fall on deaf ears. Besides, the star also explained his happiness to be a part of such a franchise. He definitely said this opportunity to be “the time” of his life. He further gushed in happiness and said, “I’m so happy to be working for Universal, and obviously Vin and the whole crew picking me.”
