Tammy Rivera went viral last week when she complained that she was racially profiled by an Asian employee at a CVS Pharmacy in DeKalb County, Georgia.
In a video clip posted on social media, Tammy, a frequent shopper at the store, explained that the female worker yelled at her for opening a hair wrap package she intended to buy.

Tammy said she knows all the employees at the drug store, but the employee who yelled at her was new.
Tammy claimed she was “racially profiled” because the woman assumed she was shoplifting.
The single mom called the CVS manager to complain and the manager called her back to apologize.
A rep for CVS corporate spoke to TMZ and said it has a “firm non-discrimination policy” and it’s committed to ensuring that all customers are “treated with respect and are offered courteous customer service.”
According to TMZ, the rep said CVS has launched an investigation into Tammy’s allegations.
Tammy shared another video on Instagram to explain that she only wanted to be treated fairly.
“I want to be treated fairly and I’m a human being. I don’t think I look better than everybody else. I’m a regular person and I don’t expect to be treated with special privileges.
“I believe that you should greet the janitor with the same respect you give to the CEO. Treat everybody fairly. You sat there and you racially profiled me.”
In most Democratic-controlled cities, such as nearby Atlanta, shoplifters are allowed free reign to steal up to $1,000 worth of merchandise.
However, Georgia is a red state where shoplifters are prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
