Leslie Jones’ Personal Website Hacked, Nude Photos Posted

Leslie Jones’ personal website was hacked Wednesday, with nude photos and personal information of the star posted.

Photos of “Saturday Night Live” and “Ghostbusters” star’s passport and drivers license were released in a gross invasion of privacy, in addition to the nudes.

The photos reportedly originated from her iCloud account.

The site was taken down shortly after 9am PT.  No motive has been announced yet.

Jones — who is very active on Twitter — has not responded yet. Her reps did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Earlier this summer, she was harassed by trolls on social media, including Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos. Twitter banned Yiannopoulos after he posted racist comments about the comedian. Jones called the harassment “gross and mean and unnecessary.”

“Ghostbusters” director Paul Feig defended Jones and condemned her attackers in a response Twitter. “What’s happening to [Leslie Jones] is an absolute outrage,” he wrote. “Alt right, haters, trolls, ‘comedians,’ whoever the f— you all are, you’re just sad.”

More to come.
