Jason Momoa has sent a brutal threat to two men who cut off a shark’s tail for fun, calling them out for being ‘evil’.

The men were working on an Icelandic fishing boat when a shark became tangled in one of their lines. Instead of releasing the animal, they instead decided to torture it before dropping it back into the water.

Filming themselves laughing, the men then hacked off the shark’s tail and watched as it attempted to swim away.

As reported by News.com.au, after releasing the shark into the water, the two fishermen turn the camera back to themselves to show how hilarious they are finding the whole thing.

They then turn their attention back to the severely injured animal, as a trail of blood streams into the ocean as the shark attempts to swim away.

As the shark struggles, the men can be heard shouting:

Good luck trying to swim, you punk!

The horrifying video has since gone viral, being shared on multiple social media platforms including on Facebook by Christel Ýr Johansen, who labelled the men as ‘sick losers’.

The distressing footage also caught the attention of Jason Momoa, who branded the men’s actions as ‘pure evil’.

Posting a screenshot of the men on his Instagram account, the Aquaman actor wrote:

And there you are……it sucks to see that you are probably good men friends providers fathers but you fucking did this. Your life will forever change I have never in my life seen something so cruel.

Your laugh makes me furious never have I wanted to hurt a human as much as I did when I heard your laugh and what u said. This will change you and hopefully you will save and protect I pray you find redemption.

we all make mistakes but what u did was evil PURE EVIL. You will get what that shark got. FUCK YOU j

Many of Momoa’s 12.3 million followers thanked him for using his platform to out these two men, with several describing the men’s actions as ‘cruel’ and ‘cowardly’.

The fishermen have since been fired from their positions, with the operators of the Icelandic fishing vessel confirming the two crew members were no longer employed on the boat, Fox News reports.

Along with being fired, the men may also face animal cruelty charges.
