CVS has launched an investigation into Tammy Rivera’s allegations that she was racistly profiled by a story worker.

Tammy Rivera went on social media on Sunday when she visited the DeCallab County CVS and was allegedly racistly profiled by an employee. Tammy posted a series of videos on her Instagram account explaining that she comes to the local CVS frequently but this time her experience was different.

Tammy claims that a new employee followed her to the isles while shopping and mentioned that she opened a package before buying it, telling the woman not to open the products. Tammy claims the woman talked to him like a child and told him to leave the store.

“This lady was sitting here, she’s definitely new, and she saw me acting in the corridor as if she was fixing things in the corridor,” Tammy said. “I’m just looking at my watch. I opened a pack and he was looking at me so harshly that when I opened the pack he said ‘don’t do it’.

The situation heated up, and Tammy chose to leave the store after the employee called the police.

According to @TMZ_tv, Tammy called CVS to lodge a complaint with the general manager of the store, who apologized for the incident. A CVS representative told TMZ that the company has a “strong non-discrimination policy” and is committed to ensuring that all customers are “treated with respect and courteous customer service is provided.”

The representative further mentioned that the agency has started an investigation into the incident.

Tammy later told TMZ that he did not want the woman to lose her job, but wanted more education and training on how to deal with black or Latina customers. The status of the woman’s employment is unclear because CVS declined to comment
