'Django Unchained' Actress Daniele Watts Handcuffed for Kissing White Husband Brian James Lucas?
Django Unchained‘s Daniele Watts is speaking out after being handcuffed and detained on Thursday (September 11) in Studio City, Calif.
The African-American actress claims that she was merely talking on her cell phone and kissing her boyfriend Brian James Lucas, who is white, in public when she was approached.
“Today I was handcuffed and detained by 2 police officers from the Studio City Police Department after refusing to agree that I had done something wrong by showing affection, fully clothed, in a public place,” Daniele wrote on Facebook.
“From the questions that he asked me as D was already on her phone with her dad, I could tell that whoever called on us (including the officers), saw a tatted RAWKer white boy and a hot bootie shorted black girl and thought we were a HO (prostitute) & a TRICK (client),” Brian wrote on his Facebook, alongside photos of the event. “So they handcuffed her and threw her roughly into the back of the cop car until they could figure out who she was. In the process of handcuffing her, they cut her wrist, which was truly NOT COOL!!! Of course, they had to let her go eventually cuz we weren’t a threat to anyone.”
