A DJANGO Unchained actress claims she was "handcuffed and detained" by police officers who mistook her for a prostitute when she kissed her white husband in public.

Daniele Watts, an African-American actress who played slave CoCo in the award-winning film, posted the news on her Facebook page on September 2.

Watts claims she and husband Brian James Lucas were kissing on a Hollywood street when police were called and they were asked to show their ID cards.

"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 Weeds actress wrote.

She also posted a photo of herself crying as she stood in the street beside a police officer.

Watts, who plays Martin Lawrence's daughter on the new show Partners, continued: "When the officer arrived, I was standing on the sidewalk by a tree. I was talking to my father on my cell phone.

"I knew that I had done nothing wrong, that I wasn't harming anyone, so I walked away. A few minutes later, I was still talking to my dad when 2 different police officers accosted me and forced me into handcuffs.

"As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I allowed myself to be honest about my anger, frustration, and rage as tears flowed from my eyes."

She continued: "The tears I cry for a country that calls itself 'the land of the free and the home of the brave' and yet detains people for claiming that very right."

Lucas wrote on his on Facebook that he thought the person who reported them to police had assumed his wife was a prostitute.

"From the questions that he asked me as D was already on her phone with her dad, I could tell that whoever called on us (including the officers), saw a tatted RAWKer white boy and a hot bootee shorted black girl and thought we were a H* (prostitute) & a TRICK (client)," he wrote.

Chicago Tribune reported a Los Angeles Police Department public information officer said there was no record of the incident as Watts was not arrested.

Django Unchained, a 2012 American western film directed and written by Quentin Tarantino, graphically depicts America's slave trade in the 1800s.
