Leslie Jones Addresses Twitter Trolls: 'It's So Gross & Unnecessary'

Leslie Jones is all smiles while making an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Thursday evening (July 21) in New York City.

The Ghostbusters star enjoyed some cooking lessons with Roberta’s chef Carlo Mirarchi and also addressed the much-publicized attacks she recently received on Twitter.

“The insults didn’t hurt me. Unfortunately, I’m used to the insults,” Leslie told Seth. “What scared me was the injustice of a gang of people jumping against you for such a sick cause. It’s like everybody has an opinion, and it all comes at you at one time. They really believe in what they believe in, and it’s so mean. It’s so gross and mean and unnecessary.”

“It was one of those things like if I hadn’t said anything, nobody would have ever known about this,” Leslie added. “All those people still would have an account. When I approached Facebook, they was on it. Twitter, I was on them. It’s like, ‘That’s my favorite restaurant. I love the food there. Three people just got shot in front of me. Y’all need to get some security.’

    In the meantime…you can say whatever racist comments you want about someone who is white or about killing cops – you can even be a member of ISIS – and Twitter will look the other way. Twitter, Facebook, Google – they’re just another arm of the Democratic party.

    You are right. Promoting pedophilia, terrorism. extremism, death threats, child pornography etc. is no problem for Twitter.
