The Hilton hotel empire faces a lawsuit because of the alleged actions of one employee at an Albany, New York branch, "Good Morning America" reported. A woman who stayed at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Albany is suing Hilton because a hotel employee reportedly filmed her taking a shower, uploaded the video to porn sites and attempted to extort her to keep the video from spreading.

The woman chose to remain anonymous, but was identified by “Good Morning America” as a Chicago resident. She said the unidentified Hampton Inn recorded her without her knowledge and put the video online, even sending it to her colleagues after she would not pay him to stop.

The culprit even put the woman’s full name on the video every time he posted it online, she told “Good Morning America” in an interview.

The woman and her attorney are suing Hilton for $100 million for the distress caused by the incident and the chain’s alleged negligence in dealing with it, per “Good Morning America.” The employee may have abused their station to get the woman’s personal details and extort her.

"The safety and security of our guests is our highest priority," a Hampton Inn & Suites spokesperson said, per “Good Morning America.” "We will continue to work with the authorities to discover the perpetrator and see that s/he is held accountable."
