Was actor Jason Momoa caught on video inappropriately touching the breast of an underage girl? No, that's not true: a short snippet of a longer video of the actor watching a dance performance with his children was uploaded to the internet with false captions insinuating something inappropriate was going on.
The video went viral via a post on Fly Height published on January 9, 2019 titled "Sickening: Aquaman Actor Jason Momoa Caught Touching Underage Girls Breast On Video" (archived here) originally had this caption under the video (archived here):
Users on social media only saw this title, description and thumbnail, causing many of them to think inappropriate things were going on:
At the time of publishing Fly Height removed the caption and changed the title to "Aquaman Actor Jason Momoa Caught On Video". An earlier version we managed to screenshot also tried an "allegedly" cop-out:
But the story is clearly fake if you watch the full video which was taken at the Hawaii premiere of Aquaman:
It shows him standing with daughter Lola Iolani and son Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha, clearly getting emotional. Nothing inappropriate going on, just a father and his kids at a public event.
According to several sites in Brazil the miscaptioned video was first spread in that country and according to the local fan club Momoa is planning to pursue legal action:
O ator Jason Momoa ( Game of Thrones, Aquaman) foi alvo de fake news vinda diretamente deste país. Um usuário mal-intencionado manipulou digitalmente um vídeo onde ele e suas filhas assistiam a uma performance de dança na pré-estreia de seu filme no Havaí, insinuando que o ator estaria acariciando a criança de forma imprópria.
