Fresh off of starring in the Ghostbusters sequel, Leslie Jones is making headlines not for her new film, but for negativity spewed in her direction on social media. On Monday, the comedian/actress was bombarded with racists and hateful tweets. She shared some of them with her followers, writing at one point:

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 also called out Twitter to create stronger guidelines regarding hate speech

Stop letting the ignorant people be the loud ones.

On a positive note, many rallied behind her using the hashtag #LoveForLeslieJ to combat the negativity. Unfortunately, Leslie has since left Twitter.
