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!"

But the Emmys did something a little different this year. As three men from Ernst & Young were giving their usual spiel, Leslie Jones took to the stage and turned the conversation to the recent attacks on her Twitter account and the hack of her nude pictures.


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!
