Jason Momoa, star of the blockbuster DCEU film ‘Aquaman,” has recently become the victim of a smear attempt this week over an altered video taken out of context, that accuses him of fondling Lola Iolani Momoa, his eleven-year-old daughter. The real and unaltered recording, which lasts seven minutes and eight seconds, was taken at the Hawaii premiere of his recent hit film “Aquaman.” In the video, Momoa and his two children Lola Iolani and Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha participated in the ritual dance known as haka, dedicated to their Polynesian roots. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7Ntg58uKvc&feature=youtu.be Real Unaltered Video Momoa, who is known for his…
