Leslie Jones takes on the trolls in her first interview since being attacked on Twitter

Leslie Jones ain't afraid of no trolls.

And for the record, the "Ghostbusters" star hasn't quit Twitter. Jones cleared things up during her first interview following the barrage of online harassment she exposed last week, telling Seth Meyers that she does plan to keep using the social media platform.

"First of, I just want to let everyone know that I did not leave Twitter," she said. "I just signed out because I wanted to deal with what was going on, and then I went to bed and I woke up the next morning and I was like, 'They said I left Twitter! Wait! I didn't leave!'"

"It's like, that's my favorite restaurant. I love the food there. Three people just got shot in front of me. Y'all need to get some security," she said of her decision to not only expose those trolling her but also get in touch directly with Twitter's CEO.

"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," she said. "Like, it's so gross and mean and unnecessary. So it was just like one of those things of, like, 'OK, so if I hadn't said anything nobody would have ever knew about this.'"
