Caitlyn Jenner Is Boycotting The Beverly Hills Hotel After They Wouldn’t Let Her In Over A Dress Code Violation
Caitlyn Jenner may have lost her bid to become governor of California, but that doesn’t mean she’s given up all the high-minded principles that prompted her to run in the first place. When fellow LGBTQ ally George Clooney boycotted the Beverly Hills Hotel back in 2019 on account of its parent company, the Dorchester Collection, being owned by the Sultan of Brunei and that small nation’s penchant for stoning homosexuals to death, Caitlyn stayed silent. But no more! On Monday, according to TMZ, Caitlyn took a brave stand against tyranny and hatred and vowed to never step foot in the Beverly Hills Hotel again.
In an Instagram Story, Caitlyn tagged the BHH and the Dorchester Collection, writing “Shame on you. Disgusting,” for “not letting me have lunch with this tiny rip in my jeans,” being sure to include a picture of said tiny rip. Caitlin said she’d been a patron for decades but “no longer!” There is no freedom when others are not free. To, you know, enjoy a Sugar Cookie souffle from the Polo Lounge’s special “12 days of Soufflés” holiday menu dressed like a teenager who works at the Beverly Center Zara. California, we could have had a real one. TMZ reports:
Caitlyn went on the attack Monday, writing, “fuck your horrible service for not letting me have lunch with this tiny rip in my jeans. Shame on you. Disgusting. I have been a patron for decades. No longer.”
It seems she tried to eat at the famed Polo Lounge, which is sort of a combo now of old school (as in dress codes) and new school. The P.L. was kind of a dour joint for a long time … until the last few years, when it experienced a resurgence with young Hollywood. It’s actually become a hot spot for both lunch and dinner.
A source close to Caitlyn tells us she was really caught off guard, especially because she was dressed in full hair and makeup. Caitlyn’s jeans were more distressed denim than ripped jeans, making it that much more surprising to her.
Don’t those idiots know distressed is on purpose and ripped is for homeless people?! Caitlyn’s not homeless, she only sometimes sleeps on the cold hard concrete floor of her private airplane hangar for her back! Here’s Caitlyn’s post.
These $1,000 jeans are clearly purposefully distressed. And artistically done, I must say. Those rips probably took some poor 8-year-old an entire 16-hour shift to get just right. But let’s not bother ourselves with the minutiae between what is fashion and what is poverty when we can bother ourselves with the minutiae of what constitutes an infraction of the Polo Lounge’s dress code as written. There’s obviously a case to be made that Caitlyn was perfectly in her right to show a little ashy knee. Page Six reports:
The jeans in question show a horizontal tear as part of the design, rather than an accidental tear.
“At the Polo Lounge, we encourage you to dress for the occasion, so we ask that you refrain from wearing casual hats, ripped denim, crop tops, nightwear, swimwear and men’s sleeveless shirts,” their website reads. “After 4pm, we do not permit shorts, flip-flops (including Birkenstocks) or sportswear (including tracksuits). Children under 10 are exempt.”
Shortly after Jenner posted her complaint, she reposted a story from TMZ, circling the phrase, “Interesting it says ‘we encourage’ … so it doesn’t say it’s a mandatory dress code.”
The “I Am Cait” star also claimed that the staff broke their no photo policy by allowing fans to take photos with her, yet they chose to follow their dress code.
Jenner circled another blurb from the TMZ story that read, “Staffers weren’t enforcing the ‘no photos’ policy — as Caitlyn took many with fans — yet they decided to enforce the dress code against her.”
This injustice has clearly affected Caitlyn on a deep level. So don’t be surprised when she decides to take matters into her own hands and address the problem at the root by launching a recall campaign against the Sultan of Brunai and offering herself up as the only replacement candidate with the vision and compassion to put a stop to the archaic, and frankly, inhumane policies of the Dorchester Collection and all its subsidiaries. But hey, cute little boycott you have there George.
