  • Morry Matson, better known as 'Coupon Carl,' called police on Camilla Hudson

  • CVS has since reached out to Hudson, 53, and apologized for the incident  

CVS Health says two Chicago store employees are out of their jobs just days after a black customer complained that white managers called police after accusing her of trying to use a phony coupon.

The company said Monday it had completed a review of the Friday night incident. The company says the two staffers involved are no longer employed.

Camilla Hudson posted cellphone video of a manager appearing nervous as he calls police. 

The 53-year-old Hudson says another manager directly challenged her when she tried to use a manufacturer's coupon for a free product. She tells The Associated Press he was 'hostile.'

The video shows the manager talking to police on the phone. No action was taken when officers arrived.

CVS apologized to Hudson and says it doesn't tolerate discrimination against customers. 

CVS announced it has terminated two white managers who were involved in reporting a black woman to police in Chicago last week

Camilla Hudson posted cellphone video Saturday of one of the managers appearing nervous.

Morry Matson's left hand is seen shaking in the Facebook video as he called police on Hudson, 53, around 11.30pm on Friday.

After the ordeal made national headlines, CVS later contacted Hudson and apologized to her over the incident. 

The company said it doesn't tolerate discrimination against customers and that it is investigating the matter.

A CVS corporate spokesman said in a statement that the company has 'completed our investigation, and as a result the two colleagues who were involved are no longer employed by CVS Health.'

The statement read: 'CVS Pharmacy does not tolerate any practices that discriminate against any customer and we are committed to maintaining a welcoming and diverse environment in our stores.

'We have firm non-discrimination policies in place to help ensure that all customers are treated with respect and dignity. Profiling or any other type of discriminatory behavior is strictly prohibited.'

Matson claimed that he didn't recognize the coupon that Hudson was trying to use, prompting him to call authorities.

'It's a female,' Matson is heard telling police as he appears to be 'visibly shaken'.

He then spelled the woman's name for the officers to which Hudson responded: 'Exactly, like the river.'

Matson identified himself to authorities before telling the police that Hudson was African-American.

'No I'm not African-American. I'm black. Black isn't a bad word,' Hudson said just moments before Matson hung up the phone and retreated into his office. 

She said she was trying to use the CVS coupon, which was for a free item related to a health issue, at the store located on 6150 N. Broadway in Chicago.

'I stopped in to make a purchase using a coupon mailed to me by the product manufacturer, as replacement for problematic/defective product.

'The manager [Matson] on duty said that he'd never seen a coupon like the one I had and said that he thought it was fraudulent,' Hudson wrote.

When she asked for his name and title, he 'became agitated and rude'.

According to Hudson, she pulled out her phone to document the incident when Matson ran to the back of the store and slammed a door in her face.

'Meanwhile, the other manager, who'd been helping me initially, came running back to tell me that I'd better leave the store immediately, because he'd called the police,' Hudson wrote.

'Of course, I had ZERO concerns about the police being called. Apparently, they'd hung up on him the first time he called, so he had to call them back a second time, telling the 911 dispatcher that I was harassing them.

'Three tactical unit officers arrived and, after some conversation and documenting their names, badge numbers, etc., I eventually left the store. Needless to say, this is far from over. Life in these United States. Aargh,' Hudson said 

Matson is running for Chicago City Council and was a state delegate for Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

Then came Pool Patrol Paula who was arrested after she assaulted a 15-year-old Black teen at a South Carolina pool.

Most recently, Permit Betty made headlines after she called authorities on a vendor. Permit Betty had questioned whether or not the vendor had a seller's license.

I just want to know what is it that racists white people and particularly the trump racist supporters want to see happened to black people in America,and why do we they hate black people so much

Comment by Me me on July 22, 2018 at 11:19pm
I have never seen a coupon for anything free that costs as much as a $1 unless it came from the manufacturer. Never from a CVS, it does look suspicious.

@mr1stroke. Your points are taken. Be well.

Comment by mr1stroke on July 19, 2018 at 10:43am
A racist is a racist no matter what community he from or when he comes out just like the gay community they have a time to come out the closet so what's the big deal no matter what they are gay, whether it's when trump is president or not president you are always surrounded by racist white people it's a reality and you see them everyday
Comment by mr1stroke on July 19, 2018 at 10:42am
Andre Blackman you don't need a story on here for you step into reality of racism, I ask the questions because all of you are repeating the same nonsense that you have been repeating for the past 60 years, those people are racists regardless on how they act or great you, like I said learn about the white people who were thought to compromise on order to live comfortable and those who are put in position to spread hate

unlike the black community, the white community have codes of life, a white person who may be against racism is suppose to stay away from fighting aginst racism if they want love comfortable like not getting loans or credits, even push out their own community, white people like to show off and live comfortable that's why many don't fight for injustice even if they know it's wrong how ever you put it black people are not worth them risking their lives, so either way they support racism so your lgbt community is one of the biggest racist community in America and you people support them everyday it's in the blood stream of the slaves for the love of its masters
Comment by Andre Blackman on July 19, 2018 at 10:29am

@mr1stroke. The question shouldn't bother you so much. Plus, you can't draw conclusions about a person just from a question. The article states the facts. Don't take offense to everything a black person asks just because the logical conclusion of it all connects the dots and implicates the wrongdoers. Coupon Carl does not need an apologist. He is proudly serving his beliefs and standing up to showcase his idiocy - no matter who he decides to connect it with. Truth is, all you can get from the story is the man is a zealot attached to multiple causes. Are you standing with that?

Comment by mr1stroke on July 19, 2018 at 10:09am
Negros need to step to reality whether it's a trump supporter of not those white racists have ways been there many of them showed up during Obama niggers just was not paying attention they were to happy and comfortable they had a black president to who did what for them I don't know? No one can give me a list of things that were so great that Obama did for the black the community, when they had the rights for white March those people were there around you everyday those were your teachers, bankers, social workers they just never showed it, look at the principal in the Bronx school who have been fired this year, she was a teacher and became a principal for a total of 40 years in a minority Hispanics and blacks school district she couldn't not holding her racism in so she let it out she said it was against her religion to celebrate black history month, and also teach the kids about no,malcolm or any one else, those are the people who have been serving the community why do you think black kids are the only one ignorant to their own culture, every body knows about blacks but the black kids ask them a question about black history after school unless they pick up Google they will look stupid so stop the nonsense you people need to embrace change stop relying on white people and you won't complaint about them, the white people who don't act racist are compromising with life, negros claim they have white friends and also there are good white people, how come they don't come out and fight with you or for you in such great numbers like they do for the illegal immigrants are you people that retarded are you paying attention, these people are so much in the front line they are forcing immigration laws to change, they are pressuring federal judges and president to give them why they want how come they don't do the same to you niggers? Until you can answer these questions you are still a slave and trump is just another excuse for your failure to embrace change and stand up for your self
Comment by mr1stroke on July 19, 2018 at 9:59am
Andre Blackman lol I'm going to ignore the trump supporter part, since every negro believe if a white person supports trump he is a racist but if he or she support democrats they are not racist, real smart lol so now you mean to tell me the lgbt community is not racist? If so this is just great but to all the people who may think like you, can you tell me if that's the case how come as long you folks have been supporting other candidates like Obama the black community continue to be a dump, when was the last time the light community March for your cause or March with you for a cause, how come their community is doing so great compare to your community since they are not racist, do you old negros know what racism is, you have been condition to get used to the racist system you accept it, if a white person smile at you and call you a n***** behind your back he is not a racist, but if he calls you a racist in your face he is a racist, you negros like being huh from white people even if they are going to kill you get out that state of mind
Comment by Andre Blackman on July 19, 2018 at 9:49am

Did the article say that Coupon Carl was president of a LBGT organization? Really? So, does that mean in this instance we have a leader in the LGBT community who is also a Trump supporter and a Racist? Can these three really go together? Humphhhh!!!!!
