Oscar winner Forest Whitaker was recently wrongly accused of stealing in New York City's Milano Market. An employee of the market signaled the actor out and then proceeded to frisk him leading him to find absolutely nothing. Whitaker was very upset, as all he did was enter the deli.
Forest Whitaker was reportedly frisked and searched at New York City's Milano Market on Friday, Feb. 15. As the Oscar winner was leaving the Upper East Side deli, he was stopped by an employee who thought he had been shoplifting.
According to TMZ, the store employee patted 51-year-old Whitaker down and found nothing on the Last King of Scotland actor.
"This was an upsetting incident given the fact that Forest did nothing more than walk into deli," Whitaker's rep tells the site. "What is most unfortunate about this situation is the inappropriate way store employees are treating patrons of their establishment. Frisking individuals without proof/evidence is a violation of rights."
