Jason Momoa apologizes for his banned photography: ‘I disrespected the culture’
Jason Momoa apologizes for capturing footage inside the Apostolic Palace of the Sistine Chapel, Italy, which is prohibited photography as flash can be harmful to the artwork.
the Aquaman took to Instagram to share her photos of enjoying her trip to Italy. However, the 42-year-old quickly found himself in hot waters as fans were outraged.
“We ordinary people are not allowed to film inside the Sistine Chapel,” one user commented.
Just Jared recently released an apology video from the actor in which Momoa can be seen saying he had no intention of “disrespecting the culture.”
“I came here when I was 19 or 20 to experience the Sistine Chapel,” Momoa said.
“I’ve always wanted and now that I can, I’ve made a wonderful donation to bring my friends and crew, as we only had a few days off to experience these places.”
“And then I found out that people want to take pictures with me, which is very strange, on a trip to the Vatican with all this wonder and they want to take pictures with me, which I don’t understand, but whatever, I did it,” Momoa explained.
“I was very respectful and asked permission for what I thought was 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 this private moment and made a beautiful donation to the church. I love you. I’m sorry if I offended you,” Momoa said.
