Forest Whitaker Was Frisked at a New York City Deli, After They Thought He Shoplifted
Forest Whitaker was leaving the Milano Market in New York City on Friday when an employee stopped him and accused him of stealing something off a shelf. The guy even FRISKED Forest in front of everybody. Obviously, he found nothing.
Forest is NOT cool with this, but it doesn't sound like he plans on doing anything about it. His rep says, "Forest did not call the authorities at the request of the worker who was in fear of losing his employment. [But] Forest asked that, in the future, the store change their behavior and treat the public in a fair and just manner." He added, "Frisking individuals without proof [or] evidence is a violation of rights."
