Leslie Jones Asks Ernst & Young to Protect Her Twitter Account at the Emmys

"Since you're good at keeping things safe, I've got a job for you: my Twitter account"

Leslie Jones asked accounting firm Ernst & Young to use its talents to protect something more sensitive than the Emmys winners during a bit at the awards show Sunday night.

“I really appreciate all the hard work that you do. But let’s be real: Y’all are protecting something that nobody is trying to steal. Don’t nobody want to know about boring Emmy secrets,” said the Saturday Night Live star. “But since you’re good at keeping things safe, I’ve got a job for you: my Twitter account. Put that in the vault, please.”

The Ghostbusters actress recently returned to Twitter after being hacked and suffering harassment from racist trolls on the social media site.

“Y’all over here using your skills to protect best voiceover in a French sitcom. Meanwhile, I’m butt-naked on CNN. I just wanted to feel beautiful, y’all. Can a sister feel beautiful?” she asked the audience to cheers.
