These Women #StandWithLeslie, Will You?
After her website was hacked, further intensifying the ongoing harassment Leslie Jones has faced, fans and supporters have taken to social media to help remedy the damage.
Calling on Homeland Security to investigate the attack, these Twitter users have used the hashtag #StandWithLeslie to burry any racist or sexist tweets and fill her feed with love.
Despite having begun the #Love4GabbyUSA hashtag and consistently remaining kind, respectful, and supportive of those around her, Jones has received unwarranted bullying since the release of "Ghostbusters" on July 11. Sparking a much needed national conversation about the ever-present issue of online harassment.
Replacing hate-filled messages with tweets describing her in beautiful adjectives, men and women alike are showing that no matter what, they #StandWithHer. See below for just a few of the many tweets she should have been receiving since the beginning.

I was terrified when I did SNL. Leslie Jones went out of her way to be open, warm, friendly, funny all week. She is a GEM.— Anna Kendrick (@AnnaKendrick47) August 25, 2016
Now tell us, do you #StandWithLeslie? Spread the love.
