Leslie Jones Prevails
Unless you happened to have avoided Twitter all summer, then you know Leslie Jones has been the victim of not only one hack, but two. One on her twitter and another on her personal website. Jones received misogynistic as well as racist comments on Twitter and on her website, and personal information was leaked. Now naturally, this can take a toll on anyone’s spirit but if you thought this would bring down Leslie Jones, you’ve been mistaken.
Jones did take a brief break from Twitter, which any of us would after experiencing that type of abuse. But she soon came back to Twitter better than ever and ready to rock, even taking to the Emmy’s earlier this year to make a joke about having the producers keep her account safe. This past week Saturday Night Live premiered for its 42nd season, and Leslie took a stab at whoever hacked her with a hilarious skit. For the skit Jones enlisted Pete Davidson for help, by him playing the part of Elliot from Mr. Robot. Jones asked him for help figuring out who hacked her Twitter, and Elliot is working to find out to the best of his abilities. (SPOILER ALERT: in the skit, Jones hacked herself and backed her photos up to her website.)
This skit just goes to show that no matter how hard you try, you won’t be getting rid of Leslie Jones anytime soon. So a message to all her haters and hackers out there, try your best but this funny lady is here to stay.
