Tom Daley’s husband ‘treated like thief in Oz’
DUSTIN LANCE BLACK has claimed he was wrongly accused of shoplifting while supporting his husband Tom Daley at the Commonwealth Games in Australia yesterday.
The screenwriter said he was stopped as he left a branch of Woolworths on the Gold Coast.
He said staff behaved as if he was a criminal and he called it a ‘vile way to treat people’.
The American, who penned acclaimed biopic Milk, said he got ‘no apology at all’ when guards found he was innocent.
‘There was just an accusatory zombie-like look in their eyes,’ he tweeted. ‘I got a refund for the drink I’d just PURCHASED and went elsewhere.’
Black’s mood didn’t improve during an interview on BBC Radio 5 Live when his decision to have a child with diving star Daly, 23, was criticised.
‘I don’t think two blokes can bring a baby up,’ a caller said of the couple, who are expecting a son via a surrogate mum.
Black, 43, said the boy would have women in his life and it would be ‘frankly bizarre’ to deprive him of female contact.
Woolworths had not commented last night.
