Celebrities Support Ghostbusters Star Leslie Jones After Explicit Photos Get Leaked

Leslie Jones is a stand-up comedian and also a hilarious actress, recently having starred in the all-female remake of Ghostbusters alongside Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Kristen Wiig.

Celebrities Support Ghostbusters Star Leslie Jones After Explicit Photos are Released After Website Hack 1

But unfortunately, the actress has been targeted in a sickening campaign of racism and abuse.

Hackers have taken over Jones’ website and released intimate photos of the actress, some of which were apparently very explicit – all from her iCloud account.

The horrendous cyber-attack also released confidential information such as copies of her passport and driving licence.

Her phone number, Twitter password and photos of her with other stars such as Rihanna, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were leaked also.

Disgustingly, the attack had a racist undertone as an image of the dead Cincinnati Zoo gorilla Harambe also appeared before the site was taken down.

Sadly, this is not the first time Jones has been targeted by racist attackers.

The 48 year old actress left her Twitter account last month after receiving racist comments.

Apparently, tweets were sent to her blaming her for the disease AIDS and some compared her to a gorilla.

She criticised Twitter for not doing enough to deal with such disgusting hate.

However, recently Twitter did implement a new “quality filter” which is supposedly designed to allow users to deal with trolls and abusive posts more easily.

But, this cyber attack is significantly much worse.

While the actress herself has not made any comment about the situation, there has been a massive outpouring of love and support on Twitter.

Ellen DeGeneres, Emma Watson and Katy Perry are just some of the big names who have publicly sent their love to Leslie.

Ghostbusters director Paul Feig also came to her side, tweeting his outrage over these disgusting hackers and their idea of ‘fun’:

Oscar winner and actress Octavia Spencer amongst others pointed out the obvious racial undertones of the attack.

Project Runway All Stars host and Charmed actress Alyssa Milano pleaded to her users to not view the explicit photos while Kathy Griffin suggested her fans should look at Leslie’s achievements instead.

Actress Anna Kendrick and singer Sara Bareilles simply lent their words of encouragement.

There were many tweets from more stars, proving just how much Leslie has positively influenced people as well as the industry.

The hashtag #IStandWithLeslie has been going around Twitter so please feel free to add to the conversation and show your support to the lovely Leslie.

No one’s privacy should be violated this way nor should they be attacked so disgustingly in such a public way.

But this also proves that no matter how much hate there is, there is always plenty of love to focus on.

We stand by you 100%, Leslie Jones and we love you no matter what.

Let us know what you think about this @CelebMix!
