Leslie Jones' website was hacked and nude photos of the star leaked online Wednesday, August 24. The hacker also posted pics of Jones' driver's license and passport. Her site, justleslie.com, has since been taken down.
Jones now joins a long list of celebs who've been hacked. Nude pics of stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Kaley Cuoco and Kate Upton hit the internet in 2014. The hacker in that case, Ryan Collins, pleaded guilty in May 2016 and is currently serving 18 months behind bars.
Jones' incident comes one month after the Saturday Night Live star was trolled with racist comments via Twitter. Some users in particular compared her to a gorilla.
The Ghostbusters actress, whose recent hilarious Olympics tweets scored her a ticket to the Rio Games, briefly quit the social platform after receiving the hurtful tweets. She opened up about the ordeal during an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers on July 21.
"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. 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," Jones said on the show.
"And it’s so mean. Like, it’s so gross and mean and unnecessary," she continued. "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."
Jones received an outpouring of love from fans and fellow celebs amid the controversy, and the hashtag #LoveForLeslieJ was created.
