She's back!

After a dramatic exit from Twitter a few days ago, Leslie Jones made a triumphant return on Thursday night to prove that racist trolls can't hold her down. The Ghostbusters actress, who decided to leave the social media site after her mentions became flooded with bigoted, disrespectful comments and memes sparked by a conservative reporter who called her performance "a minstrel show," returned with a hilarious message for her fans.

Here are the pair of tweets the actress fired off late Thursday afternoon:

After the racist attacks on Jones left her feeling like she was in a "personal hell" and driving her off the social media site, her fans began tweeting messages of support with the hashtag #LoveForLeslieJ. It quickly went viral and definitely seemed to have done the trick.

Welcome back, Leslie!
