A gay couple were attacked at Chelsea Dallas BBQ Tuesday night. A graphic video shows a man violently smashing a chair over the couple's heads. Both fall to the ground and the man continues to kick and yell anti-gay slurs.

One victim had a tooth knocked loose and cartilage snapped in his ear during the beating. No arrests have been made and an investigation is ongoing.

DNAinfo reports:

At the restaurant, Snipes got a text and needed to leave the restaurant quickly, he said. They got up and accidentally knocked over a drink, he said. "A table near us audibly started making pretty gross comments about the two of us like, 'White faggots, spilling drinks,'" Snipes said.

"I don't let anyone talk to me like that. I went over there and asked, 'What did you say about us?'" he added.

Snipes said he's 140 pounds, never thrown a punch in his life and felt he posed no physical threat to anyone at the table, especially the two large men there -- one of whom stands about 6 feet 4 inches, according to police.

"I may be a mouthy broad, but I wasn't going to take it to that level," Snipes said.

One of the men stood up and escalated the verbal confrontation, Snipes said.

"He turned it into a physical altercation very quickly," he added.

Any information should be handed over to the NYPD. They need help identifying the man.
