Leslie Jones accuses Ritz Carlton of racism.
Leslie Jones’s big night at the BET Awards apparently took a sour turn. After hosting the awards show in Los Angeles on Sunday night, the Saturday Night Live star has accused the hotel she was staying at of racism.
On Monday afternoon, Jones tweeted at the Ritz-Carlton hotel chain, expressing her disappointment in how she was treated during her visit.
“Wow was such a great night at the BET awards. But then had THE WORST STAY @RitzCarlton,” she tweeted to her 693,000 followers. “DO NOT STAY THERE!! THEY DONT LIKE BLACK PEOPLE!!”
Jones, 49, has not elaborated on what prompted the tweet.
The Ritz replied to the Ghostbusters star’s claim: “We’re sorry to hear this. We pride ourselves on providing excellent service to all. Please DM us & we’ll look into this right away”
She makes an accusation but doesn’t say what happened. No explanation, nothing. Maybe they didn’t genuflect to her as she walked by or prostrate themselves in her presence? Maybe she got in someone’s face and they didn’t take any crap off of her. It’ll be interesting to see if she can back her accusation with the truth.
