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.
