AceShowbiz - Not everyone likes "Ghostbusters (2016)", but its star Leslie Jones clearly doesn't deserve these insults people have been hurling at her on social media. On Monday, July 18, the actress decided to call out her haters on Twitter while letting the world see a bunch of mean messages she had received on the micro-blogging site.
"Ok I have been called Apes, sent pics of their asses,even got a pic with semen on my face. I'm tryin to figure out what human means. I'm out," Jones tweeted. "You know I'm gonna stop blocking so y'all can go through my feed yourself and see the bs. You won't believe the evil. It's f**king scary."

She then reposted a number of disgusting tweets in which people likened her to Harambe the gorilla. "So sad these people have mothers and sisters and aunts. So f**king sickening," she lamented before launching a lengthy rant a few hours later.

"It's so sad,most of these comments sound like they are from ignorant children. 'I'm the source of AIDS?!' WTF!! These people hate themselves," she said. "You have to hate yourself to put out that type of hate. I mean on my worst day I can't think of this type of hate to put out. I don't know how to feel. I'm numb. Actually numb. I see the words and pics and videos. Videos y'all. Meaning people took time to sprew hate."
I use to wonder why some celebs don't have Twitter accts now I know. You can't be nice and communicate with fans cause people crazy.— Leslie Jones (@Lesdoggg) July 19, 2016
"I use to wonder why some celebs don't have Twitter accts now I know. You can't be nice and communicate with fans cause people crazy," she continued. "As much as you want to thinks actors ain't human I want to give you something to think about. I work off pure passion for this game. I'm more human and real than you f**king think.I work my ass off. I'm not different than any of you who has a dream to do what they love."
"I feel like I'm in a personal hell. I didn't do anything to deserve this. It's just too much. It shouldn't be like this. So hurt right now," she added and later concluded, "I leave Twitter tonight with tears and a very sad heart.All this cause I did a movie.You can hate the movie but the s**t I got today...wrong."
Some of Jones' fellow celebrities have come to her defense. Paul Feig, who directed her in the "Ghostbusters" reboot, praised her in a tweet that read, "Leslie Jones is one of the greatest people I know. Any personal attacks against her are attacks against us all. #LoveForLeslieJ @Lesdoggg."
Margaret Cho also used the hashtag #LoveForLeslieJ to show support for her. "Stand with @Lesdoggg #loveforlesliej she is an inspiration and a legend in the making," she wrote. Also defending Jones were Loni Love and Reese Witherspoon.
