Leslie Jones Accuses The Ritz-Carlton Los Angeles of Racism

She did not give details about the alleged incident, but the tweet prompted a response from the luxury hotel chain.

The comedian - a high profile cast member on NBC's Saturday Night Live and an avid Twitter user - hosted Sunday night's BET Awards from the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles. "DO NOT STAY THERE", Jones warned her followers about the Los Angeles Ritz Carlton, "THEY DON'T LIKE BLACK PEOPLE!"

And in true Jones fashion, the star seemed to have the time of her life Sunday night as she hosted the four-hour show that celebrates the best in Black culture.

Calls placed by NBC to the public relations department Ritz-Carlton Los Angeles were not returned. "THEY DONT LIKE BLACK PEOPLE!", she fumed on Twitter. "Please DM us & we'll look into this right away", they wrote.

The hotel responded in less than 25 minutes, tweeting, "We're very sorry to hear this".

The following month, Jones took down her website after hackers evidently accessed her smartphone or iCloud and posted nude selfies there, as well as images of her passport and California driver's license, containing personal information. In the sketch, Jones ran into her 1994 self behind the Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles where she used to work and gave herself the advice, "Don't get on Twitter, and stop taking those naked pictures!"
