Protesters plan to form a picket line outside Jay Z and Beyoncé's Academy Awards after party at Chateau Marmont...

A-list guests are going to have to pass a picket line to enter Jay-Z’s Oscar night bash at the troubled Chateau Marmont this weekend.
The iconic Los Angeles hotel has been subject to an ongoing boycott since 2020. Nearly 250 of the hotel’s employees were let go at the beginning of the pandemic, allegedly without insurance or severance.
And there have been allegations of racial discrimination and harassment, which the hotel has denied.
Still, Jay is going ahead with his starry bash, where he will be joined by Beyoncé, who is performing at the Oscar telecast live from a Compton tennis court.
In a press release, Unite Here Local 11 Union, which is supporting the West Hollywood hotel’s workers, asks “Jay-Z to honor the boycott by choosing another venue for the famed after-party.”
