Leslie Jones Slams Upcoming 'Ghostbusters' Movie, Says It's 'Something Trump Would Do'

Leslie Jones is not supporting the new Ghostbusters movie.

After it was announced that Jason Reitman would be directing the continuation of the 1984 sequel, the 51-year-old Saturday Night Live star took to Twitter to reveal how insulted she feels about the new movie.

“So insulting. Like fuck us,” Leslie tweeted. “We dint [sec] count. It’s like something trump would do. (Trump voice) ‘Gonna redo ghostbusteeeeers, better with men, will be huge. Those women ain’t ghostbusteeeeers’ ugh so annoying. Such a dick move. And I don’t give fuck I’m saying something!!”

Leslie
starred alongside Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and Kate McKinnon in the female-led Ghostbusters reboot that was released in 2016.

Jason‘s Ghostbusters is set to hit theaters in 2020.

    Absolute nonsense. You’re hiding behind the ideological shield of feminism (and I’m a feminist too) to rationalize that:

    a. You were in a really mediocre reboot that failed commercially and critically (note the 50% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, poor test screenings that led to reshoots, criticism from Dan Aykroyd, etc).

    b. The new film is being led by Jason Reitman, who is an amazing director – not to mention the son of the original GB filmmaker.

    c. The new film will have the original cast, which is something everyone always wanted (minus Harold Ramis, RIP).

    So maybe it has more to do with the fact that people would rather see a true sequel than a sequel to a bad reboot. Sorry, equality means that women get to make bad movies, just like men. And equality means that you also have to suck it up when you fail. Otherwise, you’re just pandering to women, which is actually insulting.

    Also, the new film will reportedly have women in the cast. Or are you such a kneejerk ideologue that nothing but an all-female lead cast will suffice? I agree that Hollywood needs more representation and abhor Trump, but this has nothing to do with Trump or misogyny. You’re just hurt because no one wants to continue your ho-hum reboot of the franchise. What you’re REALLY hurt about is that the new cast doesn’t include your version of the movie. You are discrediting feminism by trying to make it about that.

    They went out of their way to piss off the originals’ fans and then complained when they didn’t show up to watch.

    And for an all female cast I found it ironic that the film lacked all the emotion and feels of the original. It was just a series of mid level SNL gags woven into a ghostbuster reboot narrative.

    I tricked my Indian parents into watching this film (I only got a copy cause I found it for $1 Blu Ray/Digital copy at a walgreens and sold the digital copy for $2)

    They got 30 minutes in, turned it off, and yelled at me. Told me that I knowingly made them sit though garbage and that it was, and I quote “The Worst America Hollywood garbage” they had ever seen

  • Chuck Taylor

    Says the Affirmative Action Actress who was the biggest fail in the last Ghostbuster movie. You were only hired because you were Black and they needed a stupid character on the team. That part you didn’t disappoint.

  • rainie chang

    eh the movie sucked so it had to get rebooted. nothing to do with them being women

  • Lee

    Your movie, Leslie, couldn’t have sucked harder if it tried! Denial is your friend I guess

    I must have missed something, but was the re-boot ever supposed to be part of the trilogy that real GB fans have been waiting for for the last 3 decades? I thought it was just a standalone movie in the overall GB franchise like all the cartoons and games…etc. If they wanted it to be the 3rd movie, then why wasn’t there any continuity? Why not have at least one of the women play the daughter of one of the original characters, carrying on from where her Father left off or something like that?

    And Leslie, without these Men and how successful the first 2 movies were and still are, you’re crappy movie never would have been made. So how about saying yeah I had a great experience and hopefully the next one will be a huge success as well, and who knows maybe it will lead to another Female lead GB movie. Be happy for them, there’s no need to be so angry and negative.

    Nope, only one who should up so far is you.

    What a beyotch. Always complaining that others don’t consider her feelings while she never considers others feelings

  • JediJones

    Amazing how completely rude and offensive she is after Aykroyd and Reitman were very polite and always said they had complete respect for the Ghostbusters film she made. They never should’ve been so accomodating. They should have said the 2016 movie was an insult to the legacy of Ghostbusters and a giant F-U to its legions of fans who spent decades dreaming about a Ghostbusters 3.

    You can’t give an inch to one of these entitled snowflakes. They are used to constantly bad-mouthing the country and the people that have given them every opportunity to succeed. They will always blame others for their failures and demand that the world owes them something simply because they’re breathing. And whenever they are caught doing the same things they accuse other people of doing, they will never admit what massive hypocrites they are.
