Leslie Jones has opened up about her fear of dying alone on social media and uncharacteristically, Twitter has responded with the appropriate messages of love and support.

Last week she tweeted that she, like so many others, has a specific fear: the fear of dying alone. In the middle of a workout, she tweeted that she felt as though all the hard work she puts into being fit is pointless.

“OK back to cardio. But confession I feel like I’m doing it for nothing,” she posted. “… I really feel like ‘what’s it all for’ if the people you want to notice don’t. I just feel like I might die alone. Sorry that’s pretty heavy today!!”

Her raw emotion touched many people and they began to respond to her comments immediately. They shared with the comedian their empathy, advice and sympathy, with many sharing their own similar feelings. Some tried to assure her that she would find someone and others tried to get her to see the benefits of finding solace in herself but all went out of their way to support her.

Leslie Jones first shared these sorts of feelings with fans in the summer of 2016. Around the time Ghostbusters came out she was getting hammered with a flood of downright mean Twitter attacks with many people saying she looked like an ape among other cruel insults. Things got so hard for her that she deactivated her Twitter account for a time.

While it’s clear that many were attacking her because she was black, there was more to it than that. She was also being targeted because she doesn’t necessarily fit into the classic beauty box that most seem to want everyone to fit into. What many people fail to realize is that in some ways, this is just as dehumanizing as racism.

Leslie Jones has responded to the flood of messages she has been receiving, tweeting, “Hey!! I want everyone to know I post my real feelings cause I am a real person! And I know I’m not alone. I’m also 50 years old and know that life is life! And some days we are low! I know I’m loved by God! It’s important to respect your feelings as long as you don’t live there!”

She also posted, “Wow y’all had a party with that post lmao. If there is anyone in the world who loves themselves that is me! It was just a single woman complaining post. Thanks for the love but I think y’all misunderstood. love everything about me just ready for a man to do the same. CHEAH!!”
