After receiving a ton of backlash, Jason Momoa knows he did wrong and now is apologizing publicly. A couple of days ago the 'Aquaman' star shared a picture inside the Sistine Chapel in Italy, causing the rage of several fans.
Jason Momoa has been around Italy filming Fast & Furious 10 and while there he enjoyed his time and went around to know the famous places there. In fact, he has been sharing pictures around Italy with his more than 16 million fans and followers and social media.
In one of the posts, he is posing alongside other people while in the back we can spot Michelangelo's art. Quite beautiful to be honest, but the problem is that photographs is off-limits in the Sistine Chapel because the flash can damage the art. "I LOVE YOU ITALY what a beautiful start to our day off enjoying ROMA," Momoa captioned his post.
Fans were quick to point it what was wrong with this and left him messages on his comment section noting this. "We, regular people, are not allowed to film inside the Sistine chapel," one fan said while another added, "We can't take pics but ofc celebrities can nothing against Jason (I adore him) but it's not fair."
Some posts later he shared a video with Just Jared apologizing for the situation. “I just also wanted to say, if you ever felt that I disrespected your culture, it wasn’t my intention,” he said. “I came here when I was 19 or 20 to experience the Sistine Chapel. I’ve always wanted to and now that I can, I gave a wonderful donation to bring my friends and crew because we only had a couple of days off to experience these places.”
He continued explaining that he found the situation odd about people wanting to take pictures with him despite all the beautiful art around them.
“And then I found people wanted to take pictures with me, which is very odd, during a trip to the Vatican with all this wonder 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 for what I thought, would be okay. I would never want to do anything to disrespect someone’s culture. If I did, I apologize. It was not my intention. I paid to have that private moment and gave a nice donation to the church. I love you. I’m sorry if I offended you.”
