Forest Whitaker Says he was Falsely Accused of Stealing at a NYC Deli

Forest Whitaker is furious with a NYC deli telling TMZ he was wrongly accused of shoplifting Friday morning and even frisked in public in a humiliating violation of his rights. Whitaker says he was on his way out of the Milano Market on the Upper East Side Friday when he was stopped by a deli employee and accused of swiping an item from the shelf.

An eyewitness tells sources the employee proceeded to frisk Whitaker in plain view, treating him as if he were a common criminal. Shocker, the employee’s pat down yielded zilch and Forest left the establishment baffled and angry.

This story would have been 100 times better if Whitaker did in fact steal something like a pack of gum or whatever. I would get a kick out of that. It would be one of those “stars:they’re just like us!” kind of things.

Only “like us” would mean that most of us steal packs of gum. Hell I’ve stolen a pack of gum before! Does that make me a criminal? I guess so.
