Racial profiling sucks and that's exactly what happened to Breaking Bad actor Giancarlo Esposito.
While casually strolling out of a play rehearsal in New York City, police officers swarmed him with their guns drawn. They proceeded to frisk him as they screamed, but then realized they had the wrong guy.
The authorities were looking for a suspect — who we assume must have been black or hispanic — in a hoodie, not a pin-striped suit.
We're sure the cops felt like idiots though. In fact, one even recognized him from his role on ABC's Once Upon A Time.
Maybe this wasn't racial profiling after all, but rather a really, really offensive strategy to get an autograph.
