Celebs Show Support For Leslie Jones On Twitter After Website Hack

Posted: Updated:

After a heinous online attack on comedic actress Leslie Jones, stars are speaking out against online bullying and in support of the "Saturday Night Live" star.

On Wednesday, Jones' personal website was hacked revealing personal information about the "Ghostbusters" star including her passport, drivers license and personal photos believed to have come from her iCloud account.

In July, Internet trolls flooded racist and sexist messages on Jones' Twitter page, forcing her to shut it down. The attacks first started on July 18, days after "Ghostbusters" was released in theatres, International Business Times reports.

The break didn't last long though, Jones returned to Twitter on July 21. And for the most part, it appeared as though the attackers had disappeared.

Jones has yet to speak out about Wednesday's hack, but that hasn't stopped stars like Ellen DeGeneres, Katy Perry and Gabourey Sidibe from jumping to her defense.
