ATTACKS AGAINST LESLIE JONES CONTINUE:

BIZARRE ATTACKS AGAINST LESLIE JONES CONTINUE: HACKERS PUBLISH NUDE PICTURES ON HER WEBSITE


Leslie Jones, a co-star of this year’s “Ghostbusters” movie who has been besieged in the past month by online abusers who have targeted her appearance and her race, was victimized again on Wednesday when her personal website appeared to have been hacked.
The hackers inserted a picture of the gorilla Harambe on the site, and exposed what appeared to be explicit photos of the actress, along with pictures of her driver’s license and a passport, and images of her with stars like Rihanna, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West.
The website was taken offline after the hack, which was initially reported by TMZ.
An email to a representative for Ms. Jones was not immediately returned on Wednesday.
The website, which had contained information about her comedy career and her past work in film, appeared to have been retooled to display the personal photos and information.
There was no way to independently confirm that the photos were of Ms. Jones and whether the identification documents were real, but the address on the driver’s license appeared to correspond with information about Ms. Jones that is available through public records.
Ms. Jones, 48, had spent much of the past month battling online trolls who sent her a stream of racist imagery, pornography and abusive language. She briefly left Twitter, but later returned to tweet about the Rio Olympics.
In the hours after Ms. Jones’s site was taken offline, high-profile defenders offered public support.
“These acts against Leslie Jones are sickening,” the musician Questlovewrote in a post on Twitter. “It’s racist & sexist. It’s disgusting. This is hate crimes. This ain’t ‘kids joshing round.’ ”
Others, including Paul Feig, the director of the “Ghostbusters” film, the comedian Patton Oswalt and the singer Katy Perry defended the actress on Twitter.
