Jordan Schaeffer was the victim of a brutal gay bashing at a South Beach Burger King, and now he’s speaking out about his attack to CBS Miami.

After sharing a kiss with boyfriend Eric Danko, 25-year-old Schaeffer was brutally beaten by an assailant while an accomplice held his boyfriend at bay, and the attack was caught on surveillance footage:

“It was just a simple kiss with my boyfriend. And then right after that kiss, I started walking over and that’s when I was approached by this gentleman. He then started to use derogatory terms such as ‘f**king faggots. Why don’t you show if you’re tough or not you little faggot.’ It all happened so fast once I got slammed to the ground. It’s just kind of a blur.”

In a phone interview, Schaeffer seems shaken by the attack:

“Even just talking about it makes me uncomfortable. We’re in 2016 and especially in a city like Miami Beach, where I thought being homosexual would be pretty accepted, it’s just not right that anyone should suffer.”

Burger King hasn’t commented on the attack, and the attacker and his accomplice are still at large.

Nobody should be attacked or threatened with violence for being themselves. We wish Jordan Schaeffer the best in recovering from his physical and mental injuries. Watch the story via CBS Miami below.
