It might sound odd, but the Aquaman and Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa was body-shamed on the internet after pictures of his vacation with his family somehow made their way online.

Earlier this week, photos of Momoa on vacation began making the rounds on the internet. The Aquaman actor was shirtless on the beach, and soon enough fans were criticizing the DCEU star for his missing six-pack. Some even criticized Momoa for having a “dad bod,” something that fans couldn’t really see the actor ever having. Momoa’s had a reputation for being in shape for shows like Game of Thrones and for movies like Justice League and Aquaman.

What fans don’t understand though is that maintaining a superhero physique can be especially difficult. People soon came to Momoa’s defense, telling netizens to quit body shaming the actor for not maintaining the superhero body that they often see him having. The “Superhero body” is achievable, yes, but it takes so much work to get the physical appearance that comic book movies need.

Not only does Momoa have to undergo months and months of rigorous training, but work on production helps maintain his “superhero” physique. Once all that’s done though and the training stops, the body naturally returns back to its normal form.

Still, fans have to remember that Momoa has every right to let go and enjoy himself now that he’s taking a break from work. Momoa is set to appear in Dune, which is currently in production, but Aquaman 2 isn’t going to film for a while.

Besides all that, people should know better than to body shame anyone.

Aquaman is now available on Digital HD, 4k UHD, Blu-Ray, and DVD.
