"We are aware of the incident involving Houston Dynamo midfielder Colin Clark during the game in Seattle Friday night, and his public apology for it," MLS said in a statement, according to the Houston Chronicle. "MLS is conducting a thorough review of the facts and examining possible disciplinary action."

Clark, on the sideline for a throw-in, had reached out for the ball boy to throw the ball to him. When the ball boy failed to do so, Clark directed the gay slur and a profanity at him, with an NBC microphone nearby.

He offered his apology through tweets on Saturday. Tweeted Clark:

"I'd like to offer a sincere apology to everyone who watched the game, especially the ball boy for whom I used awful language towards...I didn't mean to disrespect anyone and am sorry for letting my emotions get the best of me. It's not who I am and it won't happen again....I'm very sorry for my actions tonight and I would love for you to consider me a #soccerally moving forward."
