Despite the hateful hack of her website and attack on her privacy, Leslie Jones has a lot of love on her side.
Hollywood is speaking out after the hacking on Wednesday revealed the Ghostbusters star's personal identification as well as multiple nude photos of what appears to be the comedian, expressing their outrage and disappointment over the situation.
Octavia Spencer was quick to chime in on the hack, calling out the "rampant racism percolating in society."
"This @Lesdoggg attack is troubling. The rampant racism percolating in society right now is shameful and sad. She made a movie, that's it!" she wrote. "Karma always finds a way to right a wrong. Don't hate someone b/c of their ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion or gender #KarmaWins."

Jones' Ghostbusters director, Paul Feig, expressed similar sentiments. "What's happening to @Lesdoggg is an absolute outrage," he tweeted. "Alt right, haters, trolls, 'comedians,' whoever the f**k you all are, you're just sad."

If 101% of pop culture catered to white nerds instead of only 98.1% then the cyber attacks like the one on Leslie Jones wouldn't happen.— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) August 24, 2016
Let's turn our anger at trolls into love for Leslie Jones and into strategies to protect all the heroines who don't deserve this bullshit— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) August 24, 2016

We're with you @Lesdoggg, you are strong, the parents' basement trolls are not.— Nia Vardalos (@NiaVardalos) August 24, 2016
I truly don't know why people are so hateful towards @Lesdoggg. Why? She's talented and wonderful. Why are people so pressed to be awful?— Gabby SidiBae (@GabbySidibe) August 24, 2016
FYI sharing stolen intimate photos like @Lesdoggg 's is illegal. You are participating in a sex crime.— Patricia Arquette (@PattyArquette) August 24, 2016
This rise of online harassment, racism & sexual harassment is a sign that we have lost empathy. We need to right this course. #LostWorld— Patricia Arquette (@PattyArquette) August 24, 2016
This isn't the first time celebs have rallied around the 48-year-old actress. Jones was a target of vicious, racist harassment from online trolls just last month, which forced her to delete her account on Twitter. The Saturday Night Live star returned to the social media site after receiving an outpouring of support from celebs like Feig, Dan Aykroyd, and Chrissy Teigen.
"Unfortunately I'm used to the insults," Jones told Seth Meyers during an appearance on Late Night last month. "But what scared me was the injustice of a gang of people jumping against you for such a sick cause… Like, it's so gross and mean and unnecessary."
