The recent string of racial profiling accusations unfortunately didn’t end with Barneys, as retail giant, Macy’s, has also been accused.

Robert Brown, who stars in the HBO series “Treme” and most notably “Finding Forrester” in 2000, has recently alleged in a lawsuit filed on Friday against Macy’s and the NYPD that he was unlawfully detained on June 8 after making an expensive purchase.  According to the NY Post, the actor, who went to the Herald Square location to purchase a Movado watch as a gift for his mother was arrested and held in a jail cell in the department store by undercover officers for over an hour. He was accused of using a fraudulent credit/debit card to make his 1k purchase, however, after producing valid identification he was told “his identification was false and that he could not ­afford to make such an expensive purchase.”

Although they did not comment on the incident, a Macy’s rep told the NY Post the claim was being investigated.
