Everyone knows the least eventful part of any Emmy awards show is the moment the accountants from Ernst & Young take the stage. But not this year! 

At the 68th annual Emmy Awards on Sunday, Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones took the stage along with the accountants. Jones, whose 2016 has been filled with negative Twitter experiences and a website hack that resulted in personal photos being leaked, took the moment to draw on her personal experiences and add a bit of humor to the show.

“I really appreciate all of the hard work you do, but let’s be real: Y’all protecting something that nobody is trying to steal,” Jones joked to the accountants. “Don’t nobody want to know about boring Emmy secrets, OK? But since you’re good at keeping things safe, I got a job for you: My twitter account! Put that in the vault, please.”

Before exiting the stage, Jones ended with: “Y’all over here using your skills to protect Best Voiceover in a French Sitcom. Meanwhile, I’m butt-naked on CNN! I just wanted to feel beautiful, y’all! Can’t a sister feel beautiful?”
