Clark responded by saying "God bless you and yours. I pray you live forever." He also called on internet trolls to put a picture to their offensive comments, saying it "isn't even fun."

In June 2020, Clark shared his emotional reaction to the story of his son and two Arizona State football teammates who were called a racial slur by a customer at a Whataburger restaurant.
