Dominic Sherwood, currently appearing on the teen drama “Shadowhunters,” has issued an apology after being overheard greeting his friend with a gay slur.
He acknowledges his words were “disgusting and abhorrent.”
Sherwood interrupted co-star Matthew Daddario during a Facebook Live vid, shouting “What’s up, fag?”
“I think so many problematic phrases go unchallenged and they perpetuate negativity and hate and intolerance,” he says in a new Instagram post, “and today I was part of that and I am truly, truly sorry.”
Right after Sherwood issued the slur, Daddario told him to stop because he was filming a live video.
Daddario is present during the apologetic video, but doesn’t actually say a thing.
