Caitlyn Jenner doesn’t think the rules should apply every time. At least, not when it comes to celebrities showing off their fashion sense.
The 72-year-old former Olympian recounted an incident that happened at the popular hotspot, The Beverly Hills Hotel. Jenner was apparently denied service due to a dress code violation, and the reality star was not pleased about that kind of treatment, Page Six reported.
“@bevhillshotel f**k your horrible service for not letting me have lunch with this tiny rip in my jeans. Shame on you. Disgusting,” Jenner shared on an Instagram Story Monday.
Jenner continued, saying, “I have been a patron for decades. No longer.” The caption was posted alongside a close-up of the offending denim, which did have a visible, intentional rip in the knee.
The Polo lounge policy clearly states that ripped denim is never permitted in the dining room.
“At the Polo Lounge, we encourage you to dress for the occasion, so we ask that you refrain from wearing casual hats, ripped denim, crop tops, nightwear, swimwear and men’s sleeveless shirts,” the dress code policy states. “After 4 pm, we do not permit shorts, flip-flops (including Birkenstocks) or sportswear (including tracksuits). Children under 10 are exempt.”
In a later post, Jenner honed in on the “we encourage” wording in the policy, indicating that it sounded like the dress code was more of a suggestion than a firm rule. Furthermore, the reality star said that Polo Lounge broke their own rules on occasion.
Jenner circled the blurb on a TMZ story about the event that read, “Staffers weren’t enforcing the ‘no photos’ policy — as Caitlyn took many with fans — yet they decided to enforce the dress code against her.”
There is a policy for the Beverly Hills Hotel which states: “For the privacy of our guests, we ask that you refrain from taking photographs….Please note that unplanned and unauthorized professional photoshoots or video shoots in the hotel public spaces or outlets are not permitted.”
Jenner has become quite the controversial character in the Hollywood community. Most recently, Jenner, who is transgender, defended Dave Chappelle when his comedy special lobbed jokes at the trans community.
“Dave Chappelle is 100% right,” Jenner tweeted alongside a video clip of Chappelle performing in “The Closer.”
“This isn’t about the LGBTQ movement,” Jenner continued. “It’s about woke cancel culture run amok, trying to silence free speech. We must never yield or bow to those who wish to stop us from speaking our minds.”
The former Olympian is a registered Republican and put in a bid to become the governor of California. Though ultimately unsuccessful, this made the former reality star an unlikely figure in the GOP. In June, Jenner admitted that it had been harder to come out as Republican than as transgender.
“I hate when they put you in this little box, OK? Everybody wants to– you know, in this box or this box,” Jenner told Fox News host Tomi Lahren. “And if you’re Republican, that means you must think this way. You must deal with issues this way. I’m not even close to that, OK?”
