Leslie Jones isn’t playing around — the FBI is now reportedly involved in the search for the sick person who hacked the’SNL’ comedian’s website sharing nude photos, her driver’s license and passport. This is not a joke, and they want to be sure that everyone knows that.
The FBI is on a serious hunt to find out who violated Leslie Jones by hacking into her website, TMZ is reporting. The 58-year-old comedian’s iCloud and cell phone were hacked into, and the site is now reporting that the FBI is working on a strategy to figure out what happened. They have not yet determined where the investigation will take place, since Leslie lives in both New York and LA. The NYPD and LAPD are not yet involved, as TMZ says they do not have the case, so it will lie exclusively within the FBI.
The website was hacked on August 24, and it was just the latest of the the attacks on Leslie. She has been the victim of racist haters in the past when her Twitter was hacked and taken over with racial slurs. This theme continued in the latest hacking — at the top of her site was a video of Harambe, the gorilla. Her site was pulled nearly an hour after it went up, but the pain she suffered didn’t just stop.
We told you that Leslie was “a mess” after the hack, leaning on her SNL costars. “Friends and SNL staff, especially Lorne Michaels, have been in contact with her and is making sure she gets all the help she needs,” a source close to her told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “She is trying to make jokes about it, but she definitely is shell-shocked,” our insider adds.
Overall, whoever did this needs to be punished so it’s nice to see she’s getting the FBI involved. HollywoodLifers, do you think this is a case for the authorities?
