Leslie Jones Says She’s “Used To Insults” After Twitter Fued

Elle Women In Comedy Event

Leslie Jones can take a joke, just like she can dish one out but…when it’s a mean spirited takedown—she isn’t here for that! Jones decided to out all her excessive haters on Twitter.“The insults didn’t hurt me. Unfortunately, I’m used to the insults,” Jones, said on  Late Night with Seth Meyers.“But what scared me was the injustice of a gang of people jumping against you for such a sick cause… They really believe in what they believe in… Like it’s so gross and mean and unnecessary.”

She continued, “So it was just like one of those things of, like, ‘Okay, so if I hadn’t said anything nobody would have ever knew about this. All those people still would have an account.”

But she did get somewhere when the CEO of Twitter Jack Dorsey reached out to help. “I met the CEO of Twitter… It’s just Jack. He was cool. They helped me out. We got a whole bunch of accounts taken off of Twitter. It’s not right. It’s not right to gang up on anybody…A lot of people came at me with ‘freedom of speech.’ Hate speech and freedom of speech. Two different things.”
