Daniele Watts & Her BF Have Been Racially Profiled Before? This Story May Shed Light On Why She Reacted The Way She Did!

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikInstagram

django unchained star daniele watts brian lucas pulled over profiled texas

Daniele Watts, known best for her role in Django Unchained, made headlines when she refused to cooperate with a police officer asking for her ID after reports of lewd behavior.

Daniele claims she and her boyfriend Brian Lucas, better known as celebrity chef Cheffy BeLive, were just making out, and that the call was made only because they are an interracial couple.

As such, she thought she was using civil disobedience to protest being profiled.

The police argue that witnesses reported obscene behavior that required them to question the lovers, but that would have been the end of it if not for Daniele' non-compliance.

Well, according to an Instagram post from Brian from back in May, this isn't the first time they felt racially profiled.

Brian posted the pic (above) and wrote:

The LAPD Finally Releases Statement After Detaining Daniele Watts– But Will It Make You Even Angrier? Plus See Video Of The Incident HERE!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersFacebook

On Thursday, Django Unchained star Daniele Watts was cuffed and detained by police apparently for showing some PDA with her man, celebrity chef Brian James Lucas.

After the couple posted photos and accounts of the incident on social media (see the video ABOVE), the LAPD's own Facebook page was understandably inundated with irate comments.

The LAPD first responded to inquiries by saying that because no arrest had taken place, they had no record of the incident.

That obviously is not good enough. You can't detain someone, cuff someone, cut their wrist, then realize you're mistaken and pretend it didn't happen.

Apparently they finally got that message, because on Sunday they released the following statement:

Django Unchained Actress Handcuffed By Police For PDA With Her Boyfriend — But It's The Despicable Reason Why That Everyone Is Talking About!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersSad SadFacebookViolence

django unchained actress daniele watts detained handcuffed police pda

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

Leonardo DiCaprio attends the National Board Of Review Awards Gala in NYC with Martin Scorsese

Damn that suit looks good on him!

Leonardo DiCaprio attended the 2014 National Board Of Review Awards Gala in New York City at Cipriani 42nd Street last night and the actor was definitely showing off those deep blue eyes.

They just suck ya right in, don't they?!?!

The 39 year-old actor walked the red carpet with his Wolf Of Wall Street director Martin Scorsese.

Leo won the Spotlight Award for his collab with Martin on TWoWS AND this is Leo's second award from the NBR in two years, seeing as he won Best Supporting Actor last year for his role in Django Unchained.

AH-MAZING!

We're just glad Leo didn't get eaten when he was diving with sharks!

How would we survive awards season without seeing him at all the events!?!

What do Leonardo DiCaprio and a 19th Century Russian mystic nicknamed The Black Monk have in common?

If you answered, "they both stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night" we fear for your soul!

Regardless, the Titanic star is set to play Grigori Rasputin in Rasputin, a flick Warner Bros just announced they plan to develop!

The production company commissioned screenwriter — and one time Buffy the Vampire Slayer actor — Jason Hall to pen the historical script!

Jason also wrote American Sniper, which will be directed by Steven Spielberg and star Bradley Cooper, so we think
