Some of the scummiest folks on the Internet are continuing to harass actress Leslie Jones. This time, they’re not throwing racial slurs at her on social media, but hacking her personal website and posting explicit pictures of her. A hacker, or hackers, also published her passport and driver’s license information before the website was taken down.
The documents and files were reportedly obtained by breaking into Leslie’s iCloud account.
The actress has been engaged in a very ugly battle with Internet trolls who have been hurling disparaging racial epithets her way ever since she landed a role in the Ghostbusters reboot. Folks on social media, however, quickly made sure to let Leslie know that she’s loved, and that the people responsible for hacking her and harassing her are total losers.
The blatantly racist/misogynistic treatment that Leslie Jones has received is absolutely horrifying. All she did was play a role in a movie.

NEVER FORGET: All of this because she is a black woman who dared to have a career and stick up for herself. https://t.co/sbposAdrAf

The treatment of Leslie Jones is proof humans are ready to be wiped out by an alien race disgusted with Earth’s infestation.
