Jason Momoa’s upcoming Apple TV+ series isn’t a hit in Hawaii, according to TMZ. Folks there are reportedly upset a local farmers market is being shut down due to filming, and they’re taking it out on the actor.

The Facebook page for the Kaimu Farmer’s Market is being flooded with comments about the announcement, with vendors expressing frustration about being unable to sell their goods because of the movie, especially so close to the holidays, according to TMZ.
