Published June 27, 2017

Leslie Jones is fresh off of killing her hosting gig at the 2017 BET Awards, but the comedian's high from the night was seemingly cut short after what she described as some poor service at the Ritz Carlton, where she stayed while in downtown LA.

Taking to Twitter, Jones put the hotel on blast, saying she had "the worst stay" and even went on to urge her fans not to stay there, as "they don't like Black people."

Take a look at her tweet below:

The SNL comic did not expound on her experience, but made it clear that she apparently had a racist encounter with the hotel's staff during her stay.

The Ritz has since responded to Jones's tweet, apologizing for what allegedly occurred and offering to help rectify the situation.

TMZ explained that they're reached out to Jones's reps but have not received a response.
