Leslie Jones, who plays Patty in Ghostbusters, has been subjected to an unfathomably relentless campaign of racist harassment on Twitter.
If you're on Twitter, you can tweet support for her using the hashtag #LoveForLeslieJ. And you can tweet her directly at @Lesdoggg.
If you don't want to compose anything yourself, and would rather just RT what I've already tweeted, here you go:
@Lesdoggg Hello. You made a movie that means everything to me. Thank you for sharing your talent with us; I'm sorry it comes at this cost.— Melissa McEwan (@Shakestweetz) July 18, 2016
@Lesdoggg I would like to fix you your favorite snack and the beverage of your choice while I tell you how terrific you are in Ghostbusters.— Melissa McEwan (@Shakestweetz) July 18, 2016
There is something especially painful that @Lesdoggg has had such vitriol unleashed on her in response to such a great role in a joyful film— Melissa McEwan (@Shakestweetz) July 19, 2016
No one deserves this despicable shit under any circumstances. But goddamn does it just add a whole other layer of fuckrage that it's being directed at a woman for her participation in a film that has brought so many other women so much happiness.
Leslie Jones, I take up space in solidarity with you. ♥
