ATLANTA -- 11Alive News is looking into a viral video that reportedly shows a man getting beaten up by several people inside an Atlanta area Waffle House.

The video first surfaced on the website but was later linked to the Huffington Post.

The video shows a confrontation between a man and a large group of people inside the restaurant. On the tape, the man can be heard directing a homophobic slur at the group. He then takes a swing at a woman in the group. Several men rush to her defense, punching and slapping the man who crumples to the floor.

The website does not specifically identify where the video was taken. Atlanta Police said they were aware of the video but had no further information, suggesting it may have taken place outside their jurisdiction.
