The Beverly Hilton Quickly Recovers from Golden Globes Red Carpet Disaster
January 13, 2014 at 9:01 AM
Just hours before the Golden Globes red carpet walk was to start at the Beverly Hilton, a sprinkler malfunctioned raining down not just water, but according to witnesses, some smelly black sewage as well. Billy Bush tweeted this about the incident:
The hotel was quick to call the fire department and clean up the mess. They also released an official statement about the leak on Facebook which stated that it was a sprinkler malfunction. There was no mention of sewage and the carpet received "one last wash before it opened" for all the celebs. Cue new tweet from Billy Bush:
Indeed, nothing seemed amassed when the red carpet walk started:
This is not the first time something unfortunate happened before a big event at the Hilton. Back in 2012, Whitney Houston was found dead in one of the guest rooms, hours before the hotel hosted Clive Davis' annual Grammy party. A few months later, there was a murder-suicide at the hotel just before the Daytime Emmy awards were held there. Compared to those events, what happened on the red carpet was nothing.
