Send your love to Leslie Jones

Today is Leslie Jones’s Birthday and if any one deserves to have a happy one it’s her!

Most recently Leslie starred in the all female cast of Ghostbusters but before this she was probably best known for her work in Saturday Night Live.

Have a look at one of her hilarious sketches on the show where she bares all with Peter Dinklage.

However Leslie’s recent success on Ghostbusters has been dampened by a serious amount of hate by Twitter trolls

The comedian became the target for racist and misogynist tweets “I feel like I’m in a personal hell,” she wrote. “I didn’t do anything to deserve this. It’s just too much. It shouldn’t be like this. So hurt right now.”

To fight back she began to fight back by exposing the trolls.

The abuse got so bad that she was forced of the platform: “I leave Twitter tonight with tears and a very sad heart,” she tweeted. “All this cause I did a movie. You can hate the movie but the shit I got today…wrong.”

Along with twitter her website has also been hacked uploading stolen nude images, gorilla killed in an Ohio zoo earlier this year and pictures of her driving licence.

See some of the celebrities who tweeted out their support for the actor below.

Here at Grintage we do not condone any kind of abuse or hate towards people.  To help give Leslie a Happy Birthday we encourage you to tweet your love to her @Lesdoggg

We support you Leslie Jones!

As well as being a brilliant actor she is a very very good stand up comedian.
