Leslie Jones is making some bold claims about the Ritz-Carlton hotel after staying there recently. 

Leslie Jones hosted the 2017 BET Awards this past Sunday. During her stay in Los Angeles, she was lodged at the swanky Ritz-Carlton hotel where rooms start at around $500 a night and can go up to $2,500 per night for the baller suites. But apparently, green money can’t get you golden service if you are Black.

After leaving the hotel, the Saturday Night Live actress got on Twitter and accused the Ritz of not caring about Black people.

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. Others who did have the luxury of staying there shared that they have had similar experiences and applauded her for speaking out.

However, the Ritz-Carlton responded to Jones tweet, hoping to smooth this potential PR nightmare over.

At least she enjoyed her view.
