Three gay men were egged outside of a gay bar in the LGBT-friendly town of Wilton Manors, Fla. on Monday night, according to ABC affiliate Local 10.

Brian Carter and his two friends were standing outside of Gym Bar when a driver in a black BMW M3 drove by saying “Do you want to be gay?”

“I mostly just heard the yelling and was pelted right away,” Carter told Local 10. “It was a pretty heavy hit right here, but it splattered so much and it hit a couple other people.”

“They were definitely shaming us for being something that we feel like we were born with. I feel no shame for who I am,” Carter continued.

Egg yolks were also found on the sidewalk outside of Out of the Closet thrift shop, which is affiliated with the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, and outside of the Wilton Manors police station.

Carter posted a picture of himself covered in egg yolk on Facebook but says he wasn’t scared. Instead, he says he feels bad for the perpetrator.

“It didn’t hurt. I didn’t go home and cry. I went home and went to bed,” Carter said. “I kind of laughed it off, but I feel bad for the person that threw it. Why would he feel like he needed to do that?”

Gym Bar owner Rick Schmultzer told Local 10 he thought the person responsible is “cowardly.”

“Some idiot decides he’s going to drive by, throw an egg, and yell a slur,” Schmultzer said. “It’s cowardly. It’s stupid. It’s childish and it’s ridiculous.”

Gym Bar took a light-hearted approach to the incident by having a promotion on egg salad sandwiches on Wednesday.
