Leslie Jones loves the Golden Girls

Leslie Jones is shaking off her venomous cyber attack with help from Golden Girls. The Ghostbusters and SNL star just returned to social media a few weeks after hackers leaked personal information and nude photos onto her website.

In what seems to address all the hate she experienced, Jones posted a video to Twitter featuring the Golden Girls’ opening credits. “I don’t care what nobody say, these b– make me laugh no matter what the hell is going on, for real,” she wrote.

Jones later added in a pair of tweets, “Thanks to my fans and friends! I’m soooooo ok really. And I will always be funny been through a lot in my life and I ALWAYS GET BACK UP! So let’s make my birthday week THE BOMB!! Cause I’m about to act a fool YALL!! CHEAH!”

Katy Perry, Ellen DeGeneres, Octavia Spencer, Lena Dunham, and her SNL castmates were some of the celebrities who rallied behind Jones after the hack. Ghosbusters director Paul Feig, who witnessed some of the internet hate over his female-led reboot, tweeted, “What’s happening to [Leslie Jones] is an absolute outrage. Alt right, haters, trolls, ‘comedians,’ whoever the f–k you all are, you’re just sad.”

Jones took a hiatus from social media before the hack occurred when she received a barrage of racist and sexist tweets. “I feel like I’m in a personal hell,” she wrote at the time. “I didn’t do anything to deserve this. It’s just too much. It shouldn’t be like this. So hurt right now.”

Time and again, Jones picked herself back up – even scoring an Olympics correspondents gig in the process. See her latest tweets below.
