Trolls may have driven "Ghostbusters" star Leslie Jones off of Twitter temporarily, but she's back. While she's spending most of her time commenting on the Olympics lately (even landing herself an NBC gig in the process), she tweeted one amazing note from a young fan on Monday.

From what we can make out, the letter reads: "Dear Leslie Jones. Forget what they say on the Internet. They're just jealous you're a Ghostbuster and they're not. You are a wonderful person and a great actor. Keep being ur self! From your fan, Julian, 8 - 9 years old."

And in the margin, he asks: "Who is your favourite superhero?"

"Ok Julian you are so precious I will put this on my board at work!!" the actress tweeted, along with a photo of the hand-written card.

Julian, of course, is referring to the racist messages Jones received following the release of the "Ghostbusters" remake in July. "I feel like I'm in a personal hell. I didn't do anything to deserve this. It's just too much. It shouldn't be like this. So hurt right now," the comedian tweeted when she decided to take a break from Twitter.

Thankfully, many fans supported Jones and she returned to the social media site after a few days.

"Thanks for the love and support I received! made me feel real special," she tweeted.

As for Julian's kind words, Jones' Twitter followers were most impressed with the 8- to 9-year old (we're guessing his birthday is coming soon).

But we're still wondering, Leslie Jones: Who is your favourite superhero? (We're guessing his name is Julian.)
