“Ghostbusters” star Leslie Jones is having a summer full of ups and downs, thanks to social media.
Jones’ website, JustLeslie.com, reportedly was hacked Wednesday morning, leaving explicit photos, her driver’s license and passport information on the site. The website was offline by Wednesday afternoon. TMZ reported the hacking.
Celebrities came to the comedian’s defense. “Ghostbusters” director Paul Feig tweeted, “What’s happening to @Lesdoggg is an absolute outrage.

Thankfully, Jones has seen the other side of the coin on Twitter as well.
