Saturday Night Live star and 2017 BET Awards host Leslie Jones took to social media Monday to slam the Ritz-Carlton in Los Angeles, accusing the hotel of racism.

Jones did not reveal her specific issue with the hotel, a customer service rep soon responded to Jones on social media.

The Ritz-Carlton Los Angeles is near the Microsoft Theater, where the BET Awards were held. The hotel’s manager, Curtis Kent, told The New York Daily News that staffers are looking into Jones’ claims; the Brandman Agency, which represents the hotel chain, declined to comment.

“Diversity and inclusion are part of the fabric of The Ritz-Carlton’s culture and operations. We remain committed to providing an environment where all feel welcome,” the hotel chain said in a statement. “While we do not comment publicly about individual guests, we take every guest concern seriously and work quickly to resolve issues.”
