Fans defend Jason Momoa after he is 'body-shamed'

Jason Momoa is getting some criticism for his body.

The 39-year-old Hollywood star was pictured shirtless while on holiday with his wife Lisa Bonet in Italy when some commentators criticised the actor for his physique.

But when a photo of a topless Jason by the pool was published on Instagram by US Weekly, the Internet once again showed its worst side as a wave of body shaming comments accused Jason of having let himself go.

'Omg, what happened to the abs?' a user commented after stumbling upon the picture.

"That dad bod coming out", another added.

"Seems to me that he doesn't have the same buff bod he had in Aquaman", another user chimed in.

Fans have since leapt to Momoa's defence, making the incredibly valid point that even without his stacked Aquaman body, Momoa is still in much better shape than many of us.

Others defended Momoa and slammed the trolls who'd gone to the trouble of fat shaming him.

It turns out, people expect actors to look exactly like they do on-screen even when they're on a private holiday with their families, and several commenters felt the need to point out that Momoa didn't have his famous muscles.

"So apparently people are shaming Jason Momoa's Dad bod. you know the body where he looks like an above average fit man instead of a Spartan Warrior?" another person said.
