Leslie Jones, a Black woman actress and comedian, had her website hacked. Hackers exposed nude photos of her as well as her personal information.

“On my worst day I can’t think of this type of hate to put out.”

Unfortunately, this is not the first time she’s been attacked by such blatant racism and sexism.

Leslie Jones starred in Ghostbusters, and faced racist abuse online for her lead role in the film. In addition, Jones publicly called out fashion designers for not wanting to help her with a premiere dress for the movie.

Viral hashtags such as #LoveForLeslieJ and #BlackMenSupportLeslie launched in order to show love and support for Leslie.
