“We’re very sorry to hear this,” officials with the company tweeted in response to Jones. “We pride ourselves on providing excellent service to all. Please DM us & we’ll look into this right away.”

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

The tweet came after a string of positive messages Jones posted during the award show. The beloved comedian gave shout-outs to DJ KhaledAmber RoseJamie FoxxBobby Brown and more during the star-studded ceremony.
