Tammy Rivera Shares Video Claiming CVS Employee Racially Profiled Her

Tammy Rivera called out a CVS employee who she claims racially profiled her while she was shopping in the store, but Rivera doesn't want them fired.

TV personality, singer, and businesswoman Tammy Rivera shared a video from a CVS store she said she often frequents in DeKalb County, Georgia and claimed that she was racially profiled by an employee.

The video begins with Rivera, who is married to Waka Flocka, saying that she was in the store to buy some hair supplies when she noticed the worker watching her between aisles. She explained that she opened the product because she was going to purchase it when the worker tried to stop her. Rivera then accused the worker of racially profiling her and thinking she was a child trying to steal something. Rivera then tells the worker she’s sharing this story with her millions of followers.

According to TMZ, the police were called after Rivera’s video ended when the worker tried to kick her out. She eventually left the CVS so she couldn’t be charged with anything, but she later told reps at TMZ that she hopes the worker gets better training rather than being fired. TMZ also spoke with a rep for CVS who said they have a “firm non-discrimination policy,” and it’s committed to ensuring that all customers are “treated with respect and are offered courteous customer service.” 

It’s unclear whether the worker in question was reprimanded. You can watch Rivera’s chronicling of the incident up top.
