Jason Momoa Apologizes to Fans Offended by His Sistine Chapel Visit (Exclusive Video)

Jason Momoa is apologizing to fans who were offended by his recent visit to the Sistine Chapel, where he snapped photos and shared some to Instagram. People in the comments section noted that regular visitors are not allowed to use cameras inside the church.

While working out at the gym during his last day in Italy, Jason addressed the comments in an exclusive video for JustJared.com.

“It’s my last day in Rome and I just love you and Italy,” Jason said about his time filming Fast X. “It’s been the time of my life. I’m so happy to be working for Universal and obviously Vin and the whole crew picking me.”

Jason then brought up the Sistine Chapel visit.

“I just also wanted to say, if you ever felt that I disrespected your culture, it wasn’t my intention. 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 days off to experience these places. 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 from 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,” Jason said in the video.
