"It was just a kiss," said Jordan Schaeffer, a Los Angeles man who was beaten to a bloody pulp for kissing his boyfriend in a Miami Beach Burger King.
Police are still searching for the man who attacked Jordan Schaeffer on March 14.
The attack occurred after Schaeffer ordered food around 3 a.m. at the Whopper Bar at 1101 Washington Avenue, according to NBC Miami.
Schaeffer said he and his boyfriend shared a little PDA while they waited for their order.
"It was just a simple kiss with my boyfriend," Schaeffer said. "Then right after that kiss, I started walking over and that's when I was approached by this gentleman."
Schaeffer said the man used a derogatory term and the two men exchanged words.
"'Why don't you show if you're tough or not you little f----,'" Schaeffer recalled the man saying.
Video footage from the restaurant's surveillance camera shows the man body slamming Schaeffer to the floor.
"It all happened so fast once I got slammed to the ground. It's just kind of a blur," said Schaeffer, who is back in Los Angeles.
He sent photos of his injuries to NBC Miami. The photos show facial lacerations, swelling and 2 black eyes.
"We're in 2016 and especially in a city like Miami Beach, where I thought being homosexual would be pretty accepted," said Schaeffer, who added it was his first time visiting the Sunshine state.
Miami Beach Police ask anyone with information on this attack to call Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS.
