The Saturday Night Live comedian accused the luxury hotel chain of racism and discrimination.

Comedian Leslie Jones isn’t a fan of The Ritz-Carlton, and she’s making sure everyone is aware of it.

Jones, who hosted the 2017 BET Awards on Sunday, stayed at the luxury hotel in Los Angeles after the show. But something went awry, as Jones took to her Twitter yesterday to express her anger.

This isn’t the first time that the Ritz-Carlton has been accused of discrimination. In 2015, the North Carolina Attorney General’s office investigated the luxury hotel chain’s Charlotte location for potentially discriminating against Black people by adding a 15 percent surcharge to customers bills during a CIAA conference.

This also isn’t the first time the Saturday Night Live star has publicly expressed her concerns. Last summer, Jones also took to Twitter to express that no designer would dress her for the premiere of Ghostbusters, which the comedian starred in.
