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.

To serve, to honor, and to… Racially Profile?
Film director, Tyler Perry, says he was a victim of racial profiling.
He claims two police officers pulled him over for making a illegal turn and then the Atlanta boys in blue proceeded to interrogate Perry.
Serious incidents like this should not be happening.
Let's get on this, people.

Seems like Jamie Foxx isn't too happy with the police in Los Angeles.
The actor is convinced that he's a victim of racial profiling.
Fox admits that he's regularly pulled over by L.A. cops, most recently near his home in the affluent Los Angeles suburb, Westlake.
"I get pulled over all the time. I live in Westlake. A black man in Westlake? That's just don't happen. I got pulled over the other day for being black and happy. 'What's all that smiling about? You're smiling back there.' I was guilty."
Hmm. What do U think?
