Sherwood said he was “truly, truly sorry” for saying “’sup fag” during the stream. Daddario, who plays a gay character on Shadowhunters, told Sherwood to stop and quickly ended the stream.
Sherwood posted a video on social media to apologize, describing his behavior as “disgusting”.
The BBC reports:
In the video, Dominic says he holds himself “fully accountable” and that he wasn’t trying to “make excuses”…
“I’m speaking to all of you today to hold myself accountable, and not to make any excuses in any way,” said Dominic.
“The way I behaved today was disgusting and abhorrent, and Matt’s reaction was absolutely correct. It was one of disgust.
“I think so many problematic phrases go unchallenged and they perpetrate negativity and hate and intolerance.
“And today I was a part of that and I am truly, truly sorry.
“Moving forward I will endeavour to make sure the words I use create love.”
#RecastJace #DomIsOverParty I would not wish for someone with such foul language and uses of homophobic slurs at ease be cast on such a popular show which is very LGBTQ+ supportive. Disappointed, angry and disgusted by his words. pic.twitter.com/U3sZfzVeHO

In the video, Daddario adds: “I want you to know that we support you tremendously. It is a conversation that we have every day. It is something we work for every day.”
