A triumphant return! Leslie Jones returned to Twitter on Saturday, September 3, two weeks after website hackers leaked her personal information and private photos online.

The Ghostbusters actress, 48, tweeted a video of herself watching The Golden Girls on Saturday afternoon. As the iconic "Thank You for Being a Friend" theme song plays, Jones shouts, "I don't care what nobody say, these bitches make me laugh no matter what the hell is going on. For real!"

Jones' hilarious tweet is her first since her website was hacked on August 24. As Us Weekly previously reported, the Saturday Night Live cast member's nude photos and pics of her driver's license and passport were leaked online just one month after she was trolled by several racist Twitter users.

After exposing the racist comments to her followers, the comedienne briefly quit Twitter and opened up about the hurtful messages during an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers.

"You know, it was one of those type of things — the insults, what's scary about the whole thing is that the insults didn't hurt me," she explained on July 21. "Unfortunately, I'm used to the insults. That's unfortunate, but what scared me was the injustice of a gang of people jumping against you for such a sick cause. And it's so mean. Like, it’s so gross and mean and unnecessary. So it was just like one of those things. Like, OK, if I hadn't said anything, nobody would have ever knew about this. All those people still would have an account."

The campaign of online abuse against Jones — who received an outpouring of support from fans and celebs alike — was led by Milo Yiannopoulos. Earlier this week, the Breitbart technology editor opened up about his vicious attack in an interview with Nightline.

"Trolling is very important. I like to think of myself as a virtuous troll, you know? I'm doing God’s work," he explained. "This idea that celebrities are these fragile wallflowers. Give me a break. That the stars of Hollywood blockbusters are sitting at home crying into their iPhone."

Yiannopoulos was banned from Twitter shortly after the attack. The Department of Homeland Security is investigating Jones’ website hack.
