Actress and comedian, Leslie Jones responded to twitter trolls that swamped her account with comments about her nude photos from the supernatural comedy film, Ghostbusters at the Emmy Awards.
The shocking photos were hacked and thrown out into the public this past summer. Twitter users continuously called Jones “spectacularly unappealing” and posted pictures of gorillas on her twitter page.

Despite the hate, Jones managed to handle herself with dignity as her normal humorous self. Jones received an outstanding applause from the audience as she comically rant and raved at accounting firm Ernst & Young to manage her twitter account.
“I really appreciate all the hard work that you do. But let’s be real: Y’all are protecting something that nobody is trying to steal. Don’t nobody want to know about boring Emmy secrets,” said Jones. “But since you’re good at keeping things safe, I’ve got a job for you: my Twitter account. Put that in the vault, please.”
She went on to saying, “Y’all over here using your skills to protect best voice over in a French sitcom. Meanwhile, I’m butt-naked on CNN. I just wanted to feel beautiful, y’all. Can a sister feel beautiful?”
