SO not cool!
Colin Clark, a MLS player on the Houston Dynamo, directed a MAJORLY offensive gay slur at a ball boy during his team's loss to the Seattle Sounders on Friday night.
As you can see in the video above, he runs to the sideline to throw the ball back into play, but when the ball boy rolls the soccer ball at his feet instead of tossing it to him, the midfielder calls the poor guy a "f**king f**got."
Ugh! Really, dude?
After Clark realized it was all caught on tape, he shared an apology with his Twitter followers, tweeting:
"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."
He even tweeted directly at a gay soccer fan site to stay in their good graces, writing:
"@gay4soccer I'm very sorry for my actions tonight and I would love for you to consider me a #soccerally moving forward."
What does Major League Soccer plan on doing about it? For now, officials are considering "possible disciplinary action," as the MLS said in a statement:
“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 is conducting a thorough review of the facts and examining possible disciplinary action.”
We appreciate the apology, but it shouldn't have happened in the first place. Let's just hope Clark's young fans don't think it's okay to lash out at others with the same obscenities.
What punishment do U think Colin Clark should receive from the league for his thoughtless actions?
