Opening in Lightroom changes appearance of pink and red lighting

I've run into this issue a few times, but it's particularly pronouced in a recent set of nighttime images so I thought I'd post it here to see what the Adobe communtiy thinks is happening. I've read a few threads that concern images changing appearence when opened in Lightroom, but this seems like a pretty extreme change. I know reds and pinks don't always capture well on camera, but there seems to be something happening when  I import the RAW file into Lightroom. It appears to be adding pink tones to the over-exposed hotspots of the photo. First photo is a screenshot from when I preview the image through Finder, the next is a screenshot from Lightroom. Is there a camera setting or preset that may be causing this? I can work with the over-exposed image, but it's harder to adjust with these added tones. It's only an issue with pink/purple/red colors. Anybody have any thoughts?

Perfect, thank you! I wasn't even sure what to search for.
