Poor Leslie Jones! The actress has caught a bad break with her website being hacked and exposing her sensitive personal information. HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY how the shocking violation of her privacy has left her absolutely devastated.
“She has been a mess since everything came out and has had some tears over it, but friends and SNL staff especially Lorne Michaels has been in contact with her and is making sure she gets all the help she needs.” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. It’s great that her Saturday Night Live boss is there to support her in this trying time for Leslie, 48, after her personal website JustLeslie.com was taken over by evil hackers Aug. 24.
“She is trying to make jokes about it, but she definitely is shell-shocked,” our insider adds. She has reason to be rattled, as the hackers posted her passport and driver’s license information, and even more disturbingly included private photos from her iCloud that allegedly included graphic nude pics! Being the funny lady that she is it’s great that she’s trying to keep a sense of humor about it, but it has to be so creepy having anonymous strangers attacking her like this. It’s such a total violation of her privacy and the worst part is she still doesn’t know who is behind it.
Leslie has had a rollercoaster of a summer when it comes to the internet. She was victimized on her Twitter account with racist messages after Ghostbusters came out, causing her to temporarily quit the site. She triumphantly returned and NBC made her a correspondent at the Rio Olympics, where she did hilarious reports via her social media and even appeared onscreen to help in their coverage. But after all the great things that happened to her during these last few weeks with the games, this hacking of her personal website has to be a really jarring experience. We can only hope they catch the hackers who did this to her because she totally doesn’t deserve such an awful violation of her privacy.
HollywoodLifers, who do you think is behind the hacking of Leslie’s website? Why would they want to hurt her like this?
