Leslie Jones has ripped into the Ritz-Carlton hotel chain on Twitter, accusing it of not liking black people.

The Ghostbusters star sent the message after hosting the 2017 BET Awards show in LA, warning her followers not to stay away from the well-known hotels.

"Had THE WORST STAY @RITZCARLTON DO NOT STAY THERE!! THEY DONT LIKE BLACK PEOPLE!! (sic)" she wrote.

Jones was bombarded with racist and sexist harassment after Ghostbusters opened last year, at one point being driven off of social media after her website was hacked.

Several of Jones' 693,000 followers supported her after her latest tweet, joining her in a boycott of Ritz-Carlton.

"Not that I can afford to stay there, but I surely won't now! Hope the get shamed into bankruptcy and bought by Oprah!" user @JonBagdanove wrote.

"They have a history of discrimination, would never give them my business and money," user @DaxNY said.

It's not known what set off Jones' tweet, which has drawn concern from the Ritz-Carlton's social media account.

"We're very sorry to hear this. We pride ourselves on providing excellent service to all. Please DM us & we'll look into this right away," it tweeted.
