Los Angeles' Ritz-Carlton Is Racist According To Comedienne Leslie Jones

  • Her social media followers quickly threw their support behind her with some people saying they'd had similar experiences and others even saying they'd boycott the hotel chain

Jones' big night at the Awards apparently took a sour turn Sunday night in Los Angeles as the Saturday Night Live star has bluntly accused the hotel she was staying in of racism, TMZ writes.

After hosting the BET Awards this weekend, Jones checked into the luxury hotel franchise but was completely unhappy with the service and fired off a nasty tweet to her 600,000 followers on Monday. The Ritz-Carlton official Twitter page responded to her tweet, writing, "We're very sorry to hear this".

And if you're wondering, so far, as of this posting, there's been no word from Leslie Jones' camp.

Amy Campbell, Public Relations Director for Ritz-Carlton, provided a statement to International Business Times on Tuesday.

"We remain committed to providing an environment where all feel welcome", the spokesperson said, adding that they have made multiple attempts to follow up with Jones. We pride ourselves on providing excellent service to all.

If the employees at the Los Angeles Ritz, located a few feet away from the theatre in which the BET Awards took place, did in fact engage in racism in any way, shape, or form, they should be condemned for their actions.

She was also candid while hosting the BET Awards, and poked fun at her nude photo hack. "I am very nervous", she admitted.

Black folks who already had a chip on their shoulder against anything to do with rich White people threatened to issue an "easy boycott" of the expensive hotel since a lot of people already can't afford to stay there anyway.

Having long since worn out her welcome with rational folks, the reaction on social media was not too kind... or, as Jones is sure to say, RACIST!
