Forest Whitaker Falsely Accused of Stealing from NYC Deli
According to reports from TMZ, Oscar-winning actor and director Forest Whitaker was stopped by a worker on his way out of a NYC deli and accused of stealing from the establishment.
The employee from the store reportedly frisked and searched the star in public and found nothing stolen on him.
A representative for the deli told reporters that, “The management of Milano Market deeply regrets the wrongful actions of our employee in stopping and frisking Forest Whitaker.
“While we can not delve into the employee’s mindset, we do not believe that he was racially motivated in his actions, simply misguided.”
The market wants to do-good with Whitaker by donating to a charity of his choice in an effort to make things right.
