CVS said it fired two employees after a white store manager in Chicago called the police on a black customer for allegedly using a fake coupon.

The drugstore chain told USA Today that two employees involved in the incident lost their jobs.


"CVS Health does not tolerate any practices that discriminate against any customer and we are committed to maintaining a welcoming and diverse environment in our stores," CVS spokesman Mike DeAngelis said in a statement provided to USA Today.

"We have firm non-discrimination policies in place to help ensure that all customers are treated with respect and dignity," he added. "Profiling or any other type of discriminatory behavior is strictly prohibited."

CVS apologized to Camilla Hudson after she shared a video on Facebook of store manager Morry Matson calling the cops on Friday night, according to USA Today.

The video had been viewed more than 263,00 times as of Monday.

Hudson said Matson refused to accept a coupon she had received in the mail to replace a defective product. Matson reportedly said it looked fraudulent and called the police, while accusing Hudson of harassing him.

The video shows Matson describing Hudson as “African-American.”

“I’m black,” Hudson can be heard saying. “Black isn’t a bad word.”

Three officers reportedly arrived but did not take any action.

USA Today reported that Matson also slammed a door in her face and ordered her to leave the store.
