The fallout from the SolangeJay Z elevator fight continues, and this time it's arguably worse than being erased from your sister's Instagram. The Standard Hotel said on Wednesday night that it has identified and fired the person who leaked the tape. In a statement released to NBC News, the hotel said the unidentified employee was "responsible for breaching the security policies of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video released by TMZ." Since the video reportedly sold for $250,000 the leaker might not care about keeping their job, but the Standard said it will also be "turning over all available information to the criminal authorities." If the leaker winds up doing time, he or she better leave jail with some fantastic "100th problem" jokes.
