Leslie Jones Has Accused The Ritz-Carlton Of Racism
Leslie Jones hosted the BET Awards on Sunday night, and she had a great time. Although she wasn’t shy about letting it be known that not everything was great about the night.
Everyone knows Leslie Jones does not play when it comes to lodging a public complaint. The day after the show, Leslie hopped on Twitter to slap at The Ritz-Carlton for alleged hotel racism.
Wow was such a great night at the BET awards. But then had THE WORST STAY @RitzCarlton DO NOT STAY THERE!! THEY DONT LIKE BLACK PEOPLE!!

Leslie was pretty vague, but maybe she’s saving the full story for a TripAdvisor review.
Whoever runs the Twitter account for The Ritz-Carlton was quick to respond to her by saying that they were “very sorry” to hear that she had a bad time, and that they pride themselves on providing “excellent service to all.” They also asked her to DM them the details.
The Ritz-Carlton has a real mess to clean up here; they claim they’re currently investigating it. Leslie Jones is rich, famous, and not afraid to call a bitch out. They should have seen “Mrs. Colin Jost” on the reservation list, realized it was obviously Leslie Jones staying under a code name, and guaranteed a perfect stay. If Leslie wants a plate of Ritz crackers delivered to her room by Carlton Banks, she’s supposed to get it, right? What is the world coming to if a rich famous person can’t have a good time at an expensive hotel.
