Jason Momoa blasts 'pure evil' scammers on Instagram asking for money for Maui donations

Jason Momoa has slammed "pure evil" scammers who have been posing as him on Instagram and asking people for money in the wake of the Maui wildfire.

The Aquaman star shared an angry video saying they were "f***ed up people". 

"I wanted to inform you there's been some people on Instagram pretending to be me asking for money," he seethed.

"Pure evil in my opinion. I'm not going to reach out to anyone on Instagram to ask for money. I am posting and reposting for places to donate, there are links in my bios," he said in the video.

"It's deeply heartbreaking and disgusting to know that there are people attempting to take advantage of this tragedy."

Momoa accompanied the video with a series of links to the only Lahaina Ohana Venmo, which he said was "the best place to support Maui communities affected by the wildfires RIGHT NOW. Every donation goes directly into the hands of a family affected by the fires".

Earlier this week, he desperately urged fans not to travel to Maui as the island recovers from devastating fires that have killed more than 111 people.

Caused by drought and hurricane winds, the fires swept through the historic town of Lahaina, destroying large parts of the town and resulting in numerous fatalities.

The Fast X star and native Hawaiian took to Instagram to warn those who have booked trips or are considering visiting to avoid the island.

"Maui is not the place to have your vacation right now," Momoa wrote.

"DO NOT TRAVEL TO MAUI. Do not convince yourself that your presence is needed on an island that is suffering this deeply. Mahalo to everyone who has donated and shown aloha to the community in this time of need."
