Forest Whitaker Frisked Accused Of Shoplifting |

Oscar winning actor Forest Whitaker, 51, was reportedly frisked and searched at New York City’s Milano Market on Friday, Feb. 15.

TMZ reports as he was leaving the deli, he was stopped and frisked by an employee who thought he had been shoplifting.

Whitaker’s rep says:

“This was an upsetting incident given the fact that Forest did nothing more than walk into deli.  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.  Forest did not call the authorities at the request of the worker who was in fear of losing his employment. Forest asked that, in the future, the store change their behavior and treat the public in a fair and just manner.”

The Milano Market manager is denying the incident ever occurred, telling E! News, “nothing ever happened at this location.”
