Leslie Jones Took Online Harassment To Task At The Emmys

"Y’all over here using your skills to protect Best Voiceover in a French Sitcom, meanwhile I’m over here butt naked on CNN!"

Jones' comments took aim at a persistent problem with harassment that's long been plaguing Twitter users — and one that's affected Jones particularly harshly in recent months.

i give Leslie mad props for making a joke about her nudes being hacked. that took serious guts #Emmys

Even though Leslie is joking about this, I hope those laughing and watching see her harrassment was a very serious matter #Emmys

"I just wanted to feel beautiful y'all." This is ballsy & cool. Go Leslie.

.@Lesdoggg, you destroyed tonight. All hail Leslie Jones!
