Guys in my school call each other **** all the time. The last thing they expect of any of their friends to be gay. Guys call other guys **** to be insulting just like girls can call each other bitc*es or h*oes before they fight each other. In fact, the guys call each other **** in a playful manner at least in my school. The same as calling your friend a crazy bi*ch in a joking a manner.
I'm not sure what goes down in the UK but it isn't uncommon for guys to call each other **** in an insult contest in the USA. Maybe the attack was motivated for him being gay or maybe it wasn't. Who knows.
Gay people are pretty accepted in America. I'm sorry for ignorance of how gays are treated in the Uk but compared to other countries/places, gay people have more rights.
Good explanation of the use of fag (US context)
