Shadowhunters star Dominic Sherwood has apologised for saying “What’s up, fag?” to the co-star Matthew Daddario, whose character in Shadowhunters Alec Lightwood is gay. Mathew told Dominic to stop and warned they were on a Facebook live. Hours later, Sherwood posted a lengthy Instagram video asking fans to forgive him. “I’m speaking to all of you today to hold myself accountable, and not to make any excuses in any way,” he told his fans, adding that he is really, really sorry, “The way I behaved today was disgusting and ab…horrible, 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,” he added, promising to be more attentive to what he says and to create only beauty, love and happiness with his words. “I will deeply consider the words I use and what exactly I mean and what I’m trying to say rather than sending out a message that I in no way mean,” he said in the end.
