Hillary Clinton tweets support for Leslie Jones: I’m with you
After Leslie Jones’ website was hacked, her fans, friends, and fellow celebrities took to Twitter to show their support. Ghostbusters director Paul Feig and Saturday Night Live costars Jay Pharoah, Taran Killam, and Aidy Bryant rallied behind the comedian, as well as other celebrities like Emma Watson, Ellen DeGeneres, and Katy Perry.
Now, someone else is joining the chorus of voices supporting Jones: Hillary Clinton.
The Democratic presidential candidate tweeted at Jones on Thursday, writing, “No one deserves this — least of all someone who brings us so much joy. I’m with you.”
On Wednesday, Jones’ personal website, JustLeslie.com, was hacked to display explicit photos that appeared to be of Jones, as well as photos of her passport and driver’s license with personal information, and a racist video. The website has since been deactivated.
On Thursday, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security confirmed that it is investigating the hack.
“The investigation is currently ongoing,” a Homeland Security spokeswoman said in a statement to EW. “In order to protect the integrity of the case, no further details are available at this time.”
Jones has yet to comment on the hack.
