After many Twitter members began attacking the ‘Ghostbusters’ star, Leslie Jones was forced to leave Twitter in sake of her emotional state. Thankfully, many came with kind words to help uplift the actress.
I guess The Beatles were right when they said ” With a little help from my friends.”
According to Entertainment Weekly, after Leslie Jones, the current Saturday Night Live star sensation and co-star of Paul Feig’s entertaining Ghostbusters reboot, was bombarded with hateful tweet after tweet, she was forced to leave Twitter in an emotional state. Some people are freaking sad man.
You can check out some of Leslie’s final tweets before her self-imposed hiatus from the social media giant below:
While it’s truly sad the actress has to stop using something that we all get to use free of slanderous hate, some actual decent people came to the aid of the hilarious actress with support.
Such as Paul Feig, who directed Jones in Ghostbusters:
Or Star Wars: The Force Awakens star John Boyega:
And how about Tia Mowry, one half of the twins from awesome 90s series Sister Sister:
AND MORE AWESOME FRIENDSHIP WORDS!:
Twitter’s not only is a tool that fans can actually connect with artists and carry civil conversations with, but also something that’s necessary for Jones’ profession in our modern times. It’s sad that she wants to take a step back, but it’s good she’s got people on her side.
All I can think of, when’re people going to realize we’re all from the same race and skin pigment is simply a product of Darwinism. It’s a survival mechanism. We have to stop the hate. Don’t let fear control you. Until next time Horror Heads, be kind to one another. It just works out better that way.
