Couponing While Black: CVS Apologizes After White Manager Calls Cops On Black Woman Attempting To Use A Coupon

The company said it doesn't tolerate discrimination against customers and after an investigation into the incident they fired the two managers and apologized to Hudson.

Hudson had posted cellphone video to Facebook after saying managers at the drugstore claimed her coupon for a free product was "fraudulent".

Matson then called the police a second time while Hudson stood nearby, capturing the call on video.

Officers from the Chicago Police Department responded to an "assault in progress call" close to midnight on July 13, according to a police spokesperson.

"We sincerely apologize to Ms. Hudson for her experience in one of our stores", CVS said in a statement issued to Block Club Chicago. Our Region Director in Chicago contacted Ms. Hudson as soon as we were made aware of this incident. In a statement, CVS said that discriminatory behavior is strictly prohibited. When she tried to use a coupon that wasn't working, Matson questioned the validity of the coupon.
