However, when topless pictures of Momoa beside a swimming pool in Venice were uploaded to the internet, a body-shaming debate was sparked. And people started drawing comparisons to Momoa's physique while filming Aquaman.

In the Instagram comments of the picture, one person could be seen asking "What happened to his abs?" alongside a crying emoji. Another said: "This is what it looks like when he lets himself go."

In another comments section, somebody else suggested Momoa needed to "start lifting" again.

It wasn't long before people rushed to Momoa's defence.

Waking up to Jason Momoa trending due to him being body shamed....hold my purse while I jump on my dragon....

People were confused, especially considering that Momoa is clearly still in great shape, and called for an end to body-shaming.
