Leslie Jones Returns to Twitter, Is "Soooooo Ok"

Leslie Jones appreciates your support and kind words.

But she doesn’t really need them.

In late August, hackers broke into Jones’ Twitter account and released nude photos of the actress.

It was merely the latest example of trolls giving the Saturday Night Live and Ghostbusters star a hard time.

One of those trolls, some total loser named Milo Yiannopoulos, has said he’s doing “God’s work” by harassing stars because he wants to prove they are not “fragile wallflowers.”

Why does he care about this?

Like we said: he’s a total loser.

But whatever. Why waste a moment thinking about him or other losers on the Internet?

Jones isn’t about to.

After remaining silent for a couple weeks, Jones returned to Twitter over the weekend and made it clear that she’s doing just fine.

First, the star shared a scene from classic sitcom The Golden Girls, saying over the footage being played:

“I don’t care what nobody say, these bitches make me laugh no matter what the hell is going on, for real.”

She then did address the recent scandalous actions around her account, giving a shout-out to all who have stood by her.

“Thanks to my fans and friends! I’m soooooo ok really. And I will always be funny been through a lot in my life and I ALWAYS GET BACK UP!” she wrote.

Amen, Leslie!

Since becoming one of the summer’s breakout stars, Leslie Jones has had to deal with an influx of unwarranted comments by racists online. 

There’s no other way to put it. These people are racist.

The actress called out her these hate-filled morons on Twitter earlier this summer by responding to some of their more pointed attacks.


But it soon became clear that the onslaught of criticism was getting to Jones.

How could it not?!?


Jones later opened up about these trolls during an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, calling the harassment “so gross and mean and unnecessary.”

“What’s scary about the whole thing is the insults didn’t hurt me,” Jones said at the time.

“Unfortunately, I’m used to insults, but what scared me was the injustice of a gang of people jumping against you for such a sick cause.”

It really is sick. Sick and twisted.

Fortunately, Jones appears to now have her groove back, the same groove that prompted NBC to hire her as an Olympics correspondent this summer after her hilarious Tweets about the Games went viral.


Any time one is quoting and praising The Golden Girls online, we’re pretty sure that person will be okay in the end.
