10 Most Powerful #StandWithLeslie Celebrity Tweets

This week in “I Can’t Believe We Still Deal With This Sh*t,” Leslie Jones’ fellow actors are tweeting their #StandWithLeslie support following outrageous acts of hateful misogynoir.

Someone hacked her iCloud Tuesday night and released purported nude photos of the actress, which follows a year marked by an onslaught of hate toward her role in Ghostbusters and bullying on Twitter.

Jones tearfully left Twitter last month, but returned with a vengeance. As the Olympics in Rio began, she posted videos while losing her damn mind during the coverage from home. Eventually, NBC took notice, and invited her to the games as a corespondent:

Jones turned a bleak situation into explosive, contagious joy and a dream-come-true opportunity.

Now that she’s facing a new level of horrible with the hack, her celebrity peers are showing public support and encouraging her to stay strong. Ghostbusters director Paul Feig, Katy Perry, Questlove and many more joined the cry to #StandWithLeslie. Politicians pitched in for the flood of support, too: The First Lady of NYC Chirlane McCray denounced the bullying, as did her sorta-famous husband Bill, and the Lieutenant Governor of California Gavin Newsom.

Here are a handful of the best celebrity tweets standing with her and denouncing hate:
