Ashley Graham Gets Slammed On Twitter, Accused Of Being ‘Racist’ After Asking Jason Momoa To Do The Haka On Oscars Red Carpet

Ashley Graham has been slammed on Twitter after being shut down by Jason Momoa and his wife Lisa Bonet for asking the actor to show her his Haka dance moves.

Graham was desperate to see some of Momoa’s moves, however the social media world labelled the model “racist” for asking such a thing of the Honolulu-born actor.

Graham had been questioning the pair on the red carpet for ABC when she said: “I gotta get a Haka move. Like, one Haka move, come on!”

Momoa, who previously performed the dance at the “Aquaman” premiere, and his other half immediately looked unimpressed and refused to dance on demand.

The dance originated from Eastern Polynesian culture and Momoa is from Hawaii; part of the Polynesian triangle.
