Leslie Jones Got Support From One of the Most Powerful Women in the World

Her haters better beware.

Published August 26, 2016

Leslie Jones has really been through it these past few weeks, between racist attacks on Twitter to her website being hacked and her personal information — and photos — leaked for the world to see. But the comedienne can count the future leader of the free world among those showing their #LoveForLeslieJ.

Hillary Clinton tweeted at Jones on Thursday evening, expressing her support for the Ghostbusters star during her darkest hour.

Clinton, who obviously knows how it feels to be attacked and hacked, shared her support with a touching message:

We hope the high-powered virtual hug helped dry Leslie's tears over this latest vicious attack, and the potential president's support is a warning to those intent on bringing her down.

Catch up with Leslie's heinous and humiliating hack with BET Breaks, above.
