Writing on the social media site, Vas explained, "Literally got attacked by three guys from Newcastle in New York City tonight because 'He's the TOWIE queer.'"

He also shared pictures from hospital showing him with an injured eye and also a snap of him attached to an IV drip, although no other details of the attack have been made available at this time.

The attack is clearly a shocking incident and hundreds of people took to Twitter to share their support for Vas after the horrific incident.

Amongst those who shared their thoughts with Vas were fellow reality stars Sam Faiers, Stephanie Pratt and Jessica Wright...

With an incident of this nature taking place, there will undoubtedly be a police investigation taking place in order to find the attackers and that will hopefully be fairly swift.

Fingers crossed Vas' injuries aren't too severe and that he manages to make a full recovery after becoming the victim of such a horrible hate crime.
