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.

Tammy's followers share her concern. One Instagram user wrote: "That's the real pandemic."

"My mom and I was just talking about lightning bugs," another user wrote.

And a third IG user wrote: "The city I work in is called the butterfly capital of the world and still NO BUTTERFLIES!"

Apparently, climate change has had no effect on fireflies.

There are still more than 2,000 fireflies in the world. They prefer humid regions and forests where there are few people.

If you live near Congaree National Park in South Carolina, the fireflies put on a synchronized display that light up the night.

Fireflies prefer rural areas, nature preserves, national parks and wildlife sanctuaries. They avoid densely populated ares such as Atlanta, where guns outnumber them.

The actress who played Snoop on HBO's crime drama "The Wire" was assaulted by a man outside a Baltimore strip club.

Cell phone video shows Felicia Pearson greeting a friend when another man sneaked up behind him and slapped Pearson hard.

The video shows Pearson and a woman identified as her stunt double fighting several men. The man who slapped Pearson was knocked to the ground but the video doesn't show who hit him.

That didn't stop social media from crediting Pearson's female stunt double with dropping the attacker.

Photos posted on Pearson's Instagram account shows the 41-year-old male-identified actress celebrating her birthday at the strip club with reality TV star Tammy Rivera Malphurs and Instagram models Dream Doll and JuJu.

Pearson captioned the post:

"It's my birthday thank you to my family and friends that came out... I was litty S/O to my sisters, they came and shut it down lol @charliesangelll @iamjuju_ @dreamdoll love y'all !
