Leslie Jones’s hacking scandal, which exposed her private info and nude photos, has left the ‘Ghostbusters’ star feeling utterly violated. Despite this, as HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned, Leslie has found a way to laugh through her tears!
“Obviously, Leslie’s tore up inside over the what’s happen to her,” a source close to the Saturday Night Live star EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com. “She feels violated and stripped of her privacy. But, thanks to a few of her comedic friends, she’s laughing!”
As it turns out, laughter is the best medicine, especially when you’re the subject of a hurtful and racist attack. Leslie’s friends in the comedy biz have been “calling her up left and right to support her,” according to the insider, who adds that her pals “have been making her laugh by telling her funny stories or making random jokes.”
“Laughter’s a beautiful thing,” the source tells HollywoodLife.com, “ and it’s Leslie’s best friend right now as she tries move past this very unfortunate and painful situation that’s plagued her.” Hopefully Leslie can find a way to power through this latest vicious attack.
For those who need a reminder: on Aug. 24, a hacker took over Leslie’s website, posting her driver’s license and her passport (which revealed all her personal information.) On top of that, the hacker shared explicit nude photos of Leslie. It didn’t take long for her team to act and get the site taken down.
Sadly, this wasn’t an isolated incident, as she became a target of hateful and racist Twitter comments following her performance in Ghostbusters. The trolls got so mean that she even quit Twitter, though she has returned to the social media site.
The FBI doesn’t think this hack is a laughing matter, as the agency is reportedly investigating this hack. Following the major hack in 2014 that exposed the personal and private pictures of Jennifer Lawrence, 26, Rihanna, 28, Cara Delevingne, 24, and so many more, it seems the feds aren’t sleeping on this similar attack. Will they catch the person (or persons?) behind Leslie’s hacking scandal?
Are you glad that Leslie Jones is using laughter to cope with this embarrassing incident, HollywoodLifers?
