When trolls on Twitter spewed all kinds of racist shit at Leslie Jones, she reported them to the powers-that-be and stepped away from the scariest part of the internet for a good minute. (Actually, the scariest part of the internet is the YouTube page that plays that Little Sprout Baby commercial.) Twitter banned several of the trolls who went after Leslie Jones, including the tech editor for Breitbart Milo Yiannopoulos (aka @Nero). Nero was reportedly one of the main leaders who rallied the troll troops to throw smegma balls of racism at Leslie, because their assholes were throbbing with rage over the all-female Ghostbusters reboot, or something. Nero has been sent to banned camp by Twitter before, but this time it was permanent. The trolls aren’t done with Leslie and today they retaliated against her for getting their troll king banished. They hacked her accounts and put all of her personal business out there.
As the NYDN points out, Leslie’s personal website, which was hosted by Tumblr and has since been taken down, got hacked and it seems like the hackers also got into her other accounts. The hackers took over her personal website and covered it with scans of her passport and drivers license, as well several naked pictures of her. They also posted her password and a phone number (which I’m guessing is hers). They made it clear that they did it for the Twitter trolls who got banned, and they also just had to add a giant dollop of whipped racism by posting a video of Harambe.
Leslie hasn’t responded to this latest act of full-blown racist ridiculousness against her.
I know that I throw a telenovela-style freak out whenever a reboot of one of my childhood favorites is announced (my Jem! meltdown was 100% called for), but damn. All of this over a fucking movie about ghosts, a giant Fleet Week marshmallow man and a CGI’d loogie?! They act like Leslie built a time machine, traveled back to 1984 and as their child selves watched Ghostbusters with their family, she elbowed them all in the throat, stabbed their new puppy, pissed in the VCR playing the movie and then burned their house down.
And since we’re sort of on the subject of naked selfies, every time I try to take one, Siri says, “Nope,” real loud before my phone shuts down. Weird, right? I hope they fix that in the next update.
