Jason Momoa warns ‘do not travel to Maui’ amid deadly wildfires

Jason Momoa issued a stern message to his social media followers as deadly wildfires wreak havoc across the Hawaiian island of Maui.

“Maui is not the place to have your vacation right now,” the “Aquaman” star captioned a slideshow on Instagram Friday that featured video of the fires with the words “do not travel to Maui” written over it.

“Do not convince yourself that your presence is needed on an island that is suffering this deeply,” Momoa, 44, added.

“Mahalo to everyone who has donated and shown aloha to the community in this time of need.”

The “Fast X” star’s post, which was originally created by the nonprofit organization ʻĀina Momona, said tourists should stay away because the devastation from the natural disaster will have “a lasting island-wide impact on Maui’s resources.”

“Our community needs time to heal, grieve & restore,” the post also stated. “That means the less visitors on the island taking up critical resources that have become extremely limited the better.”

“Do not convince yourself that your presence is needed,” the actor stressed on Instagram.

Momoa also shared additional posts that demonstrate just how much destruction has taken place.

However, he captioned one of the clips with an uplifting message that read, “we will rise again, more connected, united, and determined.”

Momoa was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and he has always proudly talked about his roots following his rise to fame in Hollywood.

In November 2022, the “Slumberland” star stripped down on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” wearing only traditional Hawaiian malo that showed off his butt cheeks.

“I actually don’t even like wearing clothes anymore,” he said at the time, adding that he wears the loincloth “every day” and “all the time.”

Like Momoa, other stars have used their platforms to try and raise awareness about the fires in Maui.

Jeff Bezos and his fiancée, Lauren Sánchez, announced on Friday that they plan to donate $100 million to those affected.

“We are thinking of all the families that have lost so much and a community that has been left devastated,” the billionaire CEO, 59, and former broadcaster, 53, said in a joint statement on Instagram at the time.

“The immediate needs are important, and so is the longer term rebuilding that will have to happen — even after much of the attention has subsided.”

As of late Friday evening, local officials reported that the death toll had risen to at least 80 people.
