Aquaman star Jason Momoa was photographed in Hawaii getting “arrested” as he protested the construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope.
The photo in question finds Jason Momoa with four policemen in Hawaii as he is put in a position that looks as if he is about to be put in handcuffs and taken into custody. The photo however is staged, as you can see the playful look on Jason Momoa’s face as well as the rest of the police officers involved.

Jason Momoa has been protesting the construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) on Mauna Kea in Hawaii. The area in which TMT is proposed to be constructed is sacred to Native Hawaiian culture and religion. The Aquaman star is joined by many other Hawaiians protesting TMT and was even joined by his Justice League co-star Ezra Miller earlier this week in solidarity.
Jason Momoa has Native Hawaiian ancestry from his father and also is of Native American descent from his mother’s side. Some of his cultural background was incorporated into the backstory for Arthur Curry/Aquaman, with the character’s father being played by Temuera Morrison, who is of Māori descent.
Here is the official synopsis for Aquaman:
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.
Aquaman is available on Digital HD, 4K UHD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD. Stay tuned for the latest news on Jason Momoa and the future of the DC Extended Universe!
