“Your laugh makes me furious never have I wanted to hurt a human as much as I did when I heard your laugh," Jason Momoa wrote on Instagram.
At a time when it is the need of the hour to take care of the environment and animals, we as humans, have failed to do anything significant to save our planet Earth. And to add to the woes, there are people out there who are actually making it worse and it is truly sickening to the say the least.
But one celebrity has decided to take matters into his own hands to save the environment and express his concern over the issue. 'Game of Thrones' and 'Aquaman' star took to Instagram to express his disgust and shock over an incident that had stunned us all. It was a graphic video involving a fisherman holding a wounded shark off the side of the boat. He later released the shark back into the ocean but without a tail. As reported by Fox News.
This is soon followed by the two fishermen laughing it off and they can be seen leaving on the boat. And at the end of the video, there is a trail of blood behind in the water. The video was re-posted by a Facebook user who took it from one of the fishermen’s social media accounts before it was deleted.
The video received widespread condemnation from many people and one among them was Jason Momoa. "And there you are......it s--- to see that you are probably good men friends providers fathers but you f---ing did this. Your life will forever change I have never in my life seen something so cruel,” he wrote on Instagram.
“Your laugh makes me furious never have I wanted to hurt a human as much as I did when I heard your laugh and what u said. This will change you and hopefully, you will save and protect I pray you to find redemption,” he added.
Momoa ended his caption by noting that everyone makes mistakes, but still called their actions as “PURE EVIL.” He concluded. “You will get what that shark got.”
The video was shot in Iceland and has sparked massive outrage especially from environmentalists who believe the duo should face criminal charges for their actions. Many were shocked to notice that instead of helping it set free, the men, both Icelanders, sadistically tortured the mammal, while filming themselves laughing at the pity sight.
Following the incident, the operators of the Icelandic fishing vessel have fired the two men and they are no longer employed on the boat. According to Icelandic National Broadcasting Service (RUV), they condemned their actions after the video went viral.
Many people on social media have praised the actor for speaking up against such despicable actions and for showing the passion to save the environment. I really like this man. I love the way he loves his wife and children. I love how he’s fighting for the environment and isn’t just all about promoting his next movie, a Twitter user said. Meanwhile, another added: Jason Momoa calling out the 2 men who cut a shark's tail off simply to let it back into the ocean is TRUE Aquaman justice.
Well done, Aquaman.
