Twitter Shows Leslie Jones Love After Attacks

Leslie Jones should be riding high after her film, Ghostbusters, killed it at the weekend box office. But unfortunately, the Saturday Night Live star was inundated with hate from some racist and sexist trolls, causing the comedian to leave Twitter.

Jones is no stranger to hateful remarks, but the actress reached her breaking point after being flooded with horrific tweets.

After expressing her hurt and frustration in a series of tweets, Jones decided to leave the social networking platform all together.

Prompted by Twitter user @MarissaRei1, Jones’ fans fought back against the hate and showered the actress with love with the hashtag #‎LoveForLeslieJ.

While Jones has taken a much-needed break from Twitter, we hope she won’t stay gone long.

Stay up, Leslie!
