Celebrity Jason Momoa apologizes for posting Sistine Chapel photos

Celebrity star Jason Momoa has apologized for posting photos taken at the Sistine Chapel, during his recent visit to Rome. He received a lot of criticism on social media after posting the photos. The actor was on a trip to Rome and visited the chapel with cast and crew as they were shooting Fast X, in Italy. He reportedly obliged guests by taking pictures. Photography is banned at the Sistine Chapel as the camera flash damages the artwork in its famous ceiling painted by Michelangelo, centuries ago.

The Aquaman was in Italy for shooting his role with Vin Diesel, in Fast X, the latest and reportedly the last film in Universal Pictures’ Fast and Furious franchise. Earlier in the week, Jason Momoa had posted pictures of his trip to Rome, the Vatican City and the Sistine Chapel.
