We are simply horrified by this.
Actress Daniele Watts, best known for playing Coco in Django Unchained, suffered an indignity at the hands of the LAPD simply for a little PDA with her boyfriend, celeb chef Brian James Lucas.
After the incident on Thursday, she shared the awful story on Facebook. She wrote:
"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."
The police reportedly demanded that she show ID after receiving a call from a concerned citizen. What that concern might have been, that a man and woman were kissing, we have no idea.
What we do know is that Daniele told the police she had done nothing wrong, and so they handcuffed her hard enough to make her wrists bleed and threw her
