Leslie Jones On Racist Twitter Messages: 'You Won't Believe the Evil'

'Ghostbusters' star Leslie Jones is speaking out on what she describes as "racist" messages she's been bombarded with on Twitter.

"You won't believe the evil. It's f--king scary," Jones tells her fans.

"I have been called Apes, sent pics of their asses, even got a pic with semen on my face. I'm tryin to figure out what human means. I'm out."

"I used to wonder why some celebs don't have Twitter accounts now I know. You can't be nice and communicate with fans cause people crazy."

Jones says she's been sent racist poems and told that she looks like an "orangutan."

"She has no style she has no grace this Leslie (kong) has a funny face," she shared one of the poems she received.

"So sad, these people have mothers and sisters and aunts. So f--king sickening," Jones remarked. "Like I'm scared for our future."

'Ghostbusters' director Paul Feig and friend Reese Witherspoon came to her defense.

"Leslie Jones is one of the greatest people I know," said Feig. "Any personal attacks against her are attacks against us all."
