White Man Calls Cops on Black Woman at Dollar General for using Too Many Coupons

Madonna Wilburn, an avid couponer from Buffalo, N.Y., went to the Dollar General to buy laundry detergent and other items and was told by the cashier, Ken Dudek, that they hate people like her. Her question: Hate Black people Hate couponers

Maybe both. The family members of Dudek reached out to confirm he wasn’t a racist, but one ended his comment by calling Wilburn a b*tch and wrote #Trump2020.

Either way, her saving over $15 on a $30 purchase was a problem for Dudek, and he called the police requesting help about a “difficult customer” who was recording him without permission.

Watch the video here:

Wilburn recorded for her own safety as she said Dudek had resorted to name calling right before she started recording. New York State law says she can record in a retail store without Dudek’s permission. When the Buffalo police arrived, they let Wilburn go, calling it a non-issue, and encouraged her to call Dollar General’s management.

After the incident, Dudek reached out to Wilburn on Facebook and threatened to get a lawyer involved if she didn’t take the post down. Kristen Dudek, his wife, also reached out, according to Wilburn, but she denied the friend request.

Jennifer Dudek, Ken’s sister, reached out and apologized, saying her brother is not a racist and that he’s just unhappy with his job. Josiah Dudek, the 20-something hashtagger, reached out with a bit more hate and said she was mad because she couldn’t use her “precious coupons.”

Dollar General said in a statement that they’re investigating and they support customers who want to use their digital coupons.
