Fresh off of hosting the BET Awards Sunday, Jones tweeted about the alleged incident that occurred at the upscale downtown hotel.

"Wow was such at great night at the BET awards", she wrote. After Jones made the claim on social media, the hotel reached out to her via Twitter to say they will "look into this right away".

"We're very sorry to hear this", a message posted on the Ritz-Carlton's account read. "We pride ourselves on providing excellent service to all", and offering the star to DM them so that they can solve the issue.

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.

Ritz-Carlton officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment from PEOPLE.

In a statement to The Times, the Ritz-Carlton declined to comment on Jones' complaint but reiterated its customer service mantra.

The new tweet comes only one day after Jones aired a amusing pre-recorded bit on the BET Awards, warning her younger self to stay off Twitter. The SNL alumni said she felt "very nervous", but despite that, Jones meant to do her best to make people laugh and wanted to "represent comedy". "They don't like black people!"

Comedian and Saturday Night Live cast member Leslie Jones took to Twitter on Monday night to excoriate Ritz-Carlton hotels for "racist" treatment she received while staying there this weekend.
