Former I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! contestant David Subritzky says he was assaulted by a man who hurled homophobic slurs at him on a night out in Sydney.

The 28-year-old shared a video to Instagram of a bloody lip and said he was punched in the face by the unidentified attacker in the early hours of Monday morning (April 17).

David said the incident happened at a restaurant on Oxford Street. The unidentified man fled the scene before police officers arrived, and David received medical attention.

“Getting called a fa***t and bashed in Sydney… still gonna do me losers,” he wrote in a defiant message on Instagram.

In his Instagram Stories, David shared the photos while lying in bed and said, “People are gross.”

The socialite and reality TV personality also reassured his concerned social media followers he was “all good”.

“Thanks for all the lovely messages, I’m actually all good just a bit swollen… s__t happens,” he wrote.

“I’ve honestly had the best weekend in Sydney… and no dickhead is going to take that away.

“Call me whatever you like, bash me, I’m not gonna change.”

David Subritzky appeared on I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here‘s eighth season as an undercover “fake influencer” last year. Later in the year, David also appeared on The Challenge Australia on Network 10.
