A drunk man yelled gay slurs at two men who were riding their bicycles home in Key West, Fla., early Thursday morning, saying "I bet you faggots voted for that bitch Hillary" and "You live in Trump country now," reports the Miami Herald

The two men — Kevin Seymour, 38, and Kevin Paul Taylor, 49 — told the police a drunken man wearing gray shorts and a blue polo shirt, in his mid-to-late 30s and riding a black Eclipse scooter followed them home, the Herald reports. The drunk man was "calling us faggots and a slew of other anti-gay remarks," the men said, according to police.

Seymour warned the man that he would call the police. “If you do that, I’ll cut you up,” the man said, according to a police report. The drunken man hit the back of Seymour's bike with his scooter, causing Seymour to fall onto the street.  

Taylor posted several messages on Facebook about the incident. “We were victims of a hate crime last night biking home from dinner,” he wrote. “He kept stopping in front of us and swerving into us. Finally Kevin got ahead of him and the guy charges him with his scooter and runs into him and knocks him off his bike. Kevin is okay.”

“I think the cops will be able to track him down,” wrote Taylor.
