'Ghostbusters' Star Leslie Jones Returns to Twitter After Getting Users Kicked Off for Racial Slurs
The 'Ghostbusters' actress returned to the social network.
Leslie Jones has returned to Twitter after she was the subject of racist and homophobic trolls earlier in the week.
“I did not leave Twitter. I just signed out, because I wanted to deal with what was going on,” she told Seth Meyers on Late Night Thursday.
Earlier this week, the Ghostbusters star signed off Twitter “with tears and a very sad heart” because of the "personal hell" she experienced as internet trolls posted racist tweets about her.
“I'm used to insults. That's unfortunate. What scared me was the injustice of a gang of people jumping against you for such a sick cause,” she told Meyers. “We got a whole bunch of accounts taken off Twitter because it's not right. It's not right to gang up on nobody.”
When she returned to the social media site Thursday afternoon, around the time she taped her Meyers appearance, she started a discussion on Game of Thrones.

Breitbart.com tech editor and conservative Milo Yiannopoulos, was barred from the microblogging site after Jones pointed out that he was accused of orchestrating the vicious remarks against Jones.
Yiannopoulos spoke to Inside Edition at the Republican National Convention Tuesday night, where he said: "Am I responsible for what every else does on Twitter? No!"
He added: "I didn't tweet anything racist, I didn't tweet anything sexist. I made a few jokes at the expense of a Hollywood actress."
