Jay Z Faces Backlash For Oscars Afterparty

Jay-Z is facing backlash for hosting an Oscars afterparty at Chateau Marmont this weekend in West Hollywood. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Chateau Marmont is currently facing complaints from its employees. A boycott has been planned for this upcoming weekend by the local hotel worker’s union after employees alleged they were subjected to “racial discrimination and sexual harassment in the workplace.”

Kurt Petersen, co-president of Unite Here Local 11 said in a statement, “For Jay-Z to choose the Chateau Marmont for their Gold Party is shockingly insensitive. “They must move their event and choose an afterparty hot spot that treats its workers, especially Black women, with dignity and respect. Jay-Z has a responsibility to do better.”
