The specter of racism has apparently descended on Leslie Jones’ life again.

“Saturday Night Live” alum Jones took to Twitter to complain of her stay at the Ritz-Carlton while hosting the BET Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, accusing employees of the hotel of racism.

“Wow was such a great night at the BET awards,” Jones wrote. “But then had THE WORST STAY @RitzCarlton DO NOT STAY THERE!! THEY DONT LIKE BLACK PEOPLE!!”

Jones did not elaborate on the accusation. TheWrap has reached out to her manager for comment.

After Jones made the claim, the hotel reached out to her via Twitter to say that it would “look into this right away.”

“@Lesdoggg We’re sorry to hear this,” the high-end chain tweeted. “We pride ourselves on providing excellent service to all. Please DM us & we’ll look into this right away.”

While Jones did not detail what she found to be offensive about her stay at the hotel, she’s encountered enough racism to know it when she sees it. Last year, Jones temporarily quit Twitter “with tears,” after she was repeatedly bombared with racist and misogynistic comments following her cating in the “Ghostbusters” reboot.

“I leave Twitter tonight with tears and a very sad heart. All this cause I did a movie,” Jones wrote at the time. “You can hate the movie but the s— I got today … wrong.”

She returned to the social media platform after alt-right darling Milo Yiannopoulos, who was accused of leading a harassment campaign against her, was permanently banned by Twitter.

“Welp … a bitch thought she could stay away,” Jones tweeted. “But who else is going to live tweet Game of Thrones!!”
