Leslie Jones calls for stronger Twitter guidelines after receiving racist tweets

Luther Vandross was outed as gay after his death.

Leslie Jones has been facing massive hate and vitriol on Twitter, and now she is calling out Twitter to push for stronger guidelines after enduring so much backlash.

All of the members of the new Ghostbusters cast have been facing hatred and backlash since the new movie, which has an all-female cast, debuted, with people claiming that it had “ruined the childhoods” of young men who grew up with the original movie. But Leslie Jones, who is black, has received a large amount of hate, much of it race-based.

The hatred that Jones received ranged from mentions of the slain gorilla Harambe and the infamous Donkey Kong Rap to straight up racial slurs, and as Jones gave up on trying to block all the hatred, she started to take screenshots of the hate she was receiving to post it publicly.

“Stop saying ignore them or that’s just the way it is. Cause that’s bullshit. Everybody knows an a**hole check them for their hate,” she tweeted out.

She went on to call on Twitter to tighten their guidelines and suggested that it was not enough to freeze the account of the perpetrator but that those who engaged in this kind of hateful behavior should be reported.

Since Jones tweeted about the hate she received, the #LoveForLeslieJ hashtag has surfaced, with people showing support and love for the Ghostbusters actress.
