Fans Defend Jason Momoa After People Call Him Out For 'Dad Bod'
For a lot of men, the idea of taking their shirt off on the beach can be fairly daunting. With an increasing amount of pressure for young men to have an unattainable muscular physique, more and more feat that they don't match up to the 'ideal'.
But now internet trolls have directed their aim towards Game of Thrones hunk Jason Momoa - you know, the one who's known for being in pretty incredible shape and also Aquaman - after a photo of him enjoying a holiday was posted online by US Weekly.
Commenting on the picture, some dared to ask "what happened to the abs?" and accused him of having a "dad bod".
One person even quipped: "Seems to me he doesn't have the same buff bod he had in Aquaman."
However, fans of the 39-year-old were not having any of it and stepped in to defend the actor.
Backing the father-of-two, one follower wrote: "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?"
Racing to his defence, a second added: "All the haters wish they looked half as good."
A third person said: "So, people are criticizing #JasonMomoa for having a dad bod? Y'all wish you looked like that. I wish I looked like that."
Most were stunned that anyone would even try and claim the Hawaiian was in any way out of shape.

Taking to Twitter, one fan called out people for trying to body shame him, writing: "That is most definitely NOT a dad bod. And even if he did have a dad bod, no on is allowed or worthy enough to 'shame' Jason Momoa because he is Jason Momoa.
"Also there's nothing wrong with a dad bod! Body shaming is gross."
Writing on Instagram, another said: "He's gorgeous on and off camera!!! His body, face, heart and personality are beautiful! STOP HATING! YOU ARE EITHER JEALOUS OR HAVE NO TASTE! #shutuptrolls."
Amen. Someone's weight or body shape has nothing to do with anyone else. And for a dad edging towards 40, he's not in bad nick AT ALL.
