Don’t mess with Kelly Price or you may end up getting slammed on the news.

After a pharmacist at a Carson, California CVS refused to fill the prescription of the GRAMMY® award-winning R&B star “because of the neighborhood,” she was upset.

In an interview with CBS2, Price, a Carson resident, said, “I was offended for the people of this neighborhood.”

The 42-year-old made the 1 a.m. trip to CVS’s 24-hour pharmacy to get painkillers for an upcoming dental procedure.

“I was offended for anybody who lives in a neighborhood that may not be considered the upper echelon where expensive homes are, or where six- and seven-figure earners live,” she added.

Refusing to back down, after approximately 30 minutes of arguing, the pharmacist filled the prescription.
