On NBC’s Saturday Night Live last night, Leslie Jones took on the trolls and blasting both the idiots who last summer hacked into her computer and the deplorable haters who posted vile racist and sexist insults on her Twitter page.
The Ghostbusters star, who has been subjected to racist online abuse, had her private photos and documents posted online in August. But she told SNL’ television audience the attacks were “nothing”.
“I don’t know if you all know this about me,” Jones said during a spirited visit to the Weekend Update desk, “but I ain’t shy. I keep my porn in a folder labeled PORN. If you want to see Leslie Jones naked, just ask.”
“What I’m trying to say is, if you wanna hurt anybody these days, you’re gonna have to do way more than leak their nudes or call them names — you can’t embarrass me more than I have embarrassed myself. I know all the details, cause I was there,” she pointed out.
“If I was good at computers, I wouldn’t waste it trolling on people,” she said. “I would do something useful, like renew my driver’s license from home. I would hack into Tinder and delete all those other girls’ profiles so no matter where you swipe, you get me.” she added.
And she ended the conversation by saying a serious note.
“I have spent decades getting roasted by comedians,” she noted. “Trust me, at a certain point, you stop being embarrassed and start being you. And I have been me for 49 years. Because the only person who can hack me is me, and my firewall is a crazy b*tch with a shovel.”
