“Aquaman” star Jason Momoa on Wednesday visited Native Hawaiian protesters blocking the construction of a $1.4 billion telescope project on Hawaii’s tallest mountain.
The same day, another Hawaiian Hollywood actor, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, defended the Mauna Kea protests during his appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” after a visit to the mountain last week.
Protesters have blocked the road to Mauna Kea’s summit for 17 days in an effort to halt construction on the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) project set to begin on land considered sacred to some Native Hawaiians . . .
