Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones appeared as herself on a recent Weekend Update segment to discuss an important topic in this election: cyberterrorism. There, the comedian turned her personal experience with her infamous website hack into comedic gold.
“All they did was release some nude pics of me,” Jones told Colin Jost, “which is nothing because, I don’t know if y’all know this about me, but I ain’t shy… I am very comfortable with who I am. I am an open book. I keep my porn in a folder labeled ‘porn.’ If you wanna see Leslie Jones naked, just ask!”
Jost pointed out that she seems unfazed by the hack and the trolls who’ve attacked her on social media. “Colin, do you think some words on the internet can hurt me?” she responded. “I once had a crazy bitch try to beat me with a shovel at a bus stop because I took her spot on the bench. Now that’s a troll! Real trolls ain’t tappin’ on keyboards; they swingin’ shovels.”
Jones then joked about what she would do if she had enough computer smarts to hack accounts. It mostly revolved around deleting other women’s accounts on Tinder and building her own Westworld-esque amusement park called “Leslie World, full of perfect robots with perfect penises.”
“The only person who can hack me,” she added, “is me.” Watch the sketch below, and read our full recap of the night’s episode here.
