Comedian and actress Leslie Jones is reportedly the victim of a deeply invasive and dangerous hack that, along with the usual (but no less abhorrent) racist memes, has exposed her driver’s license and passport information, along with several private naked photographs of the Ghostbusters star on her own website.
The website, justleslie.com, was taken down around noon on Wednesday, but not before hackers posted the above, along with, according to the New York Daily News, a “video of Harambe, the gorilla who was shot and killed at a Cincinnati Zoo this summer.”
Jones, recently returned from Rio where she was covering the Summer Olympics, has yet to comment about the incident, though, in all fairness, why should she have to? Simply put, the performer faces this barrage of abuse for four simple reasons:
- She is black.
- She is a woman
- She isn’t passive
- She is successful
Her hackers are:
- ...with too much time on their hands.
It’s nothing short of disgraceful to the entire human race that Jones and others who face abuse for the simple fact of existing will have their entire lives up-ended all because a handful of basement neckbeards can’t find anything better to do with their time. We’ll update when we have more information about them.
