Last week, some people had some less-than-nice things to say about a certain ghostbuster, Miss Leslie Jones. And by ‘less-than-nice’ we mean she had to deal with some downright racist harassment.

She thought she could expose the hateful messages she was receiving by retweeting them and letting the public have at ‘er. While she did get some overwhelming support, her tactics insighted more hate and eventually she had to log out of Twitter altogether for a little peace. Thankfully–after a lot of encouragement–Twitter responded by banning users who had broken their code of conduct.

On Friday, Leslie talked to Seth Meyers on Late Night about her eventful week. She said how baffled she was at the unnecessarily mean and hateful comments and by how little Twitter was interested before she started reposting messages. Then Seth showed her an adorable compilation of Ghostbusters fans’ positive messages of support and Leslie talked about how there are definitely good things coming out of this whole mess. And to clarify again: she HAS NOT left Twitter.

Then on the weekend–after discovering that baseball players are insanely attractive–Leslie debuted a new approach to Twitter. She’s ignoring the hate, retweeting the support (from the likes of William Shatner and Viola Davis no less) and only posting positive messages. Love is the new theme, people. Get with it!

She’s not letting the haters get her down anymore. 


We won’t Leslie, we won’t.
