The Saturday Night Live alum accused employees of the hotel of racism.

Leslie has never been shy about calling out people who have wronged her, and in June past year (16) blasted high-end fashion designers in a scathing tweet after no one offered to dress her for the Ghostbusters premiere.

Fresh off her gig as host of the 2017 BET Awards, Leslie Jones is making headlines this morning after accusing the Ritz-Carlton of being racist. "DO NOT STAY THERE", Jones warned her followers about the Los Angeles Ritz Carlton, "THEY DON'T LIKE BLACK PEOPLE!"

This past weekend, Los Angeles was filled with Black stars as they celebrated the annual BET Awards. Others who did have the luxury of staying there shared that they have had similar experiences and applauded her for speaking out.

Jones did not elaborate on what transpired at the Ritz Carlton establishment.

The Ritz-Carlton is one of the most luxurious hotel chains in the world and in Los Angeles, the rooms start at $600 a night.

In an effort to rectify the situation, a representative from the swanky hotel tweeted at the SNL star, writing "We're very sorry to hear this". All this cause I did a movie. 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!"
