Beyonce Steals The Spotlight In New ‘Lion King’ Cast Photo; Jason Momoa Gets Body-Shamed

Jason Momoa Gets Body-Shamed Over His ‘Dad Bod

Via iHeart Radio:

Even Jason Momoa isn’t safe from body-shamers. You read that correctly. Over the weekend, the former Game of Thrones star took to Venice, Italy with his family to spend time in the sun. Us Weekly shared a shirtless shot of the actor on their Instagram account and for one reason or another, some decided to criticize the 39-year-old for having a “dad bod.” Head over to the post and you’ll notice that one of the most-liked comments inquired about the lack of abs on the Aquaman star.

As the Internet always does, users went back and forth about the body-shaming and the fuss goes to show that this type of criticism isn’t just an issue that women face. It’s a problem for everyone. Scroll on below to see some reactions to the viral photo from Momoa’s vacation.

Beyonce Steals The Spotlight In New ‘Lion King’ Cast Photo

Via iHeart Radio:

Disney released the first cast photo for its highly-anticipated remake of Lion King. While the photo marks the first time the entire cast, excluding James Earl Jones, has been photographed together, the only thing people could talk about was Queen Bey.

Effortlessly slaying in black, matching her cast-mates, Beyonce’s presence in the picture is almost tangible as she’s both literally and figuratively at the center of the star-studded photo. The only way to describe it, as Vulture so eloquently put it, is to state the obvious: On one side of Queen Bey “is Donald Glover, Florence Kasumba, JD McCrary, Seth Rogen, Shahadi Wright Joseph, and Billy Eichner. On the other side of Beyoncé is Alfre Woodard, Chiwetel Ejiofor, John Oliver, Keegan Michael Key, and Eric André.”

As fans know, Bey stars in Lion King as Nahla. The role of the lioness was reportedly expanded after Bey was cast as the Queen of the jungle. The 37-year-old singer opened about her excitement for the film’s release while at her mother Tina Knowles Lawson’s third annual Wearable Art Gala last month. “I’m so excited for my kids to see it, but it means even more to share this experience and this culture of The Lion King with my mother and my family,” she shared.

Lion King arrives in theaters July 19.
