Lisa Bonet Wasn’t Here for Ashley Graham’s Awkward Request for Jason Momoa to Dance
Don’t mess with Lisa Bonet’s man, Jason Momoa, or the actress will shut you down.
That’s exactly what she did during one of Sunday’s most awkward encounters on the Oscars red carpet.
It all started when model Ashley Graham was interviewing Aquaman star Jason Momoa and Bonet.
During the interview, Graham very awkwardly asked Momoa to do “one Haka move” on the red carpet. According to Complex, Haka is a dance unique to Maori culture and remains part of the Eastern Polynesian traditions. Momoa, who is Hawaiian, performed the dance at the Aquaman premiere as a nod to the New Zealand culture aspects in the film, but it’s not exactly a typical red carpet request.
As soon as the words were out of Graham’s mouth, accompanied by an awkward dance move, Bonet had already had enough. Visibly annoyed, she put up her hand and essentially said “no way.”
Twitter, of course, had a field day with the uncomfortable encounter. Check out some of the responses below:
