“Shadowhunters” actor Dominic Sherwood has apologized after he was caught using a gay slur during a Facebook Live stream.

Matthew Daddario, who plays gay Shadowhunter Alec Lightwood, was talking to fans on Facebook Live on Tuesday when Sherwood greeted him off-camera saying,”What’s up f-g?”

“Stop. Stop. I’m live,” Daddario replied.

Sherwood, 27, posted a video on Instagram apologizing for his behavior calling it “disgusting and abhorrent.” Daddario stands beside him in the video but doesn’t speak during Sherwood’s apology.

“I think so many problematic phrases go unchallenged and they perpetuate negativity and hate and intolerance, and today I was part of that and I am truly, truly sorry,” Sherwood says in the video.

Daddario closes out the video stating that the cast and crew of “Shadowhunters” stands for “love and kindness.”
