Recently, we reported about a CVS employee in Chicago that called the police on a black woman that was trying to use a manufacturer’s coupon. The woman, Camilla Hudson, recorded the video in a widely shared Facebook post that has since gone viral.

On Monday, CVS announced that they have fired two employees involved in the incident.


According to CBS News, the company said, “We have completed our investigation, and as a result, the two colleagues who were involved are no longer employed by CVS Health.”

We previously reported that the company issued an apology at the start of their investigation and said the company “does not tolerate any practice that discriminates against any customer.”


In the video, the store’s manager Morry Matson can be seen shaking while on the phone with police. Hudson documented her experience through her Facebook page, in which she said Matson did not start shaking until she began to record the encounter.

Hudson said that managers at the store claimed her coupon for a free product was “fraudulent.”
