Less than a day after the 40-year-old Aquaman star criticized Chris Pratt for using a plastic water bottle, Momoa took to Instagram to apologize for his comment. Momoa is a big advocate of recyclables and has his own brand of still, alkaline spring water, packaged in aluminum cans.
Early Wednesday morning, Momoa shared a pic of himself and the two kids, Lola, 12, and Nakoa-Wolf, 10, he shares with wife Lisa Bonet, posing with Pratt. He also apologized in the caption for how wide-spread his comment became.
"BRO you know my children and I are madly in love with you and I love everything you do," Momoa wrote after tagging the 40-year-old Guardians of the Galaxy star. "I’m sorry this was received so badly today. I didn’t mean for that to happen."
Momoa continued the post by explaining why he felt the need to speak out about single-use plastic.
"I’m just very passionate about this single use plastic epidemic," he wrote. "The plastic water bottles have to stop. I hope u make a reusable water bottle for Amazon so we all can purchase."
"You’re an inspiration to many. I’m one of them," he added of Pratt. "I’ll send you a case of MANANALU. All my Aloha, Da Momoa’s"
Momoa's initial comment came when Pratt took to Instagram to show off a pic of himself at the gym. In the shot, Pratt's looking off into the distance while sporting a skintight tank and holding a plastic water bottle.
While Pratt's brother-in-law, Patrick Schwarzenegger, praised him for "lookin' ripped" and his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger, gushed "love it baby," Momoa had a different take on the photo.
"Bro, I love u but wtf on the water bottle. no single use plastic. Come on," he wrote.
Pratt replied, “Aquaman! You’re completely right. Dammit. I always carry my big gallon size reusable water jug around with me too. I even had it that day!!!”
