Rio Olympics: Leslie Jones reaction videos go for the gold

Leslie Jones Twitter

Posted on

Leslie Jones made watching Game of Thrones so much more enjoyable, and now she’s doing the same for the 2016 Rio Olympics. The Ghostbusters and Saturday Night Live star rooted for Team USA in a series of reaction videos and live tweets for the Summer Games on Saturday. 

While the comedian missed the opening ceremony to go see her fellow SNL castmate Michael Che record his comedy special, she recorded it and watched it later, chanting, “U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!” Donning a Team USA cap and a star-spangeled ensemble, Jones continued her chants in various videos, some involving a plastic megaphone. 

 

 

 

Jones later cheered 19-year-old Ginny Thrasher when she won the first gold medal of the Rio Olympics for the women’s 10-meter air rifle on Saturday, as well as shouting “Come on, Dwyer! Swim, motherf–ker!” at the TV to support American swimmer Conor Dwyer.

 

 

Jones remarked earlier how happy she was to have her Twitter account back — she left the social media platform briefly after facing a wave of racist commenters. As her followers watched her sing Barry Manilow’s “Copacabana” to footage of Team USA’s bike team, she’s officially back to her spirited self.
