Leslie Jones has had a nightmarish summer as she has become the target of countless social media and online attacks that have left many stunned at how hurtful and hateful people can truly be.
But Jones has friends and supporters in powerful places, and now those that are showing their #LoveForLeslieJ includes Black men on Twitter.
The hashtag #BlackMenSupportLeslie popped up earlier this week and has since taken hold, with countless brothers tweeting their love, support, and empathy for Jones:
Black men: let's show support and love for Leslie Jones. Use the hashtag #BlackMenSupportLeslie— Brotha B (@BlakeDontCrack) August 24, 2016
#BlackMenSupportLeslie Because of course. I bet LJ is strong enough to take on these lames by herself, but she shouldn't and doesn't have to— jacobi (@jacobi81) August 25, 2016
These cowards hide behind their screens while you work hard for screen time. They've got nothing on you.#BlackMenSupportLeslie— #BlackAugust (@BlackAutonomist) August 24, 2016
