Chris' story has been shared by friends and family on Facebook, with one person writing: "My good friend, Chris Ball, was bottled in the face by a celebratory Trump supporter - because he is gay".

A gay man from Calgary, Canada says he was severely beaten and sent to the hospital after a group of Donald Trump supporters allegedly attacked him at a bar in Santa Monica, Calif. on Election Night, the Calgary Metro reports.

Chris Ball told Metro that he was watching the election results in a bar with some friends when the group began hurling homophobic abuse at them, yelling "f**king faggots" before launching a violent attack.

Later that evening, he left the bar alone and was reportedly jumped by a group of men in an alley way.

"To celebrate Trump's win last night, some Trump supporters made a decision to smash a beer bottle into my close friend's head last night for being gay, sending him to the ER", Mr Kentis wrote.

"And it's not Trump that I fear, it's his supporters that have already resorted to violence, just because of the energy they feed off of him", he added.

"We got a new president, you f*cking f*ggots."

Ball was he was stitched up at the hospital, had five staples put in his head, but he's feeling fine and it looked a lot worse than it felt.

He thinks he may have then fallen and he then smashed his head into the concrete.

"When I came to, I remember waking up and wiping the blood from my eyes. I called some friends, they picked me up and I went right to the hospital", he told Metro.

Though police haven't commented on the incident, Chris maintains a very grounded outlook on the whole night as he feels it wasn't as much about politics as it was a hate issue.

The language he used to describe the perpetrators is oddly tolerant and he even minimized the severity of his injuries and assault. "That's just how I have to handle it", he said. "I'm alive and well and still very gay", he laughed.
