Emmys 2016: SNL's Leslie Jones Laughs Off Her Terrifying Hacking Ordeal

Leslie Jones‘ life became a nightmare this summer when a hacker took over her Twitter account and released private, explicit photos. But on Sunday, the Saturday Night Live star got the last laugh.

Joining the gentlemen of Ernst and Young on stage at the 2016 Primetime Emmy Awards, Jones began by offering her heartfelt thanks: “I appreciate all of the hard work you do, but let’s be real: Y’all are protecting something nobody is trying to steal!” (Wait, did I say heartfelt? Scratch that.)

“Don’t nobody want to know about boring Emmy secrets, OK?” she added. “But since you’re good at keeping things safe, I got a job for you: My twitter account! Put that in the vault, please.”

She continued, “Y’all over here using your skills to protect Best Voiceover in a French Sitcom. Meanwhile, I’m butt-naked on CNN! … I just wanted to feel beautiful, y’all! Can’t a sister feel beautiful?”

    She’s awesome. Took lemons and went straight past lemonade to comedy gold.

    It was funny; they make a big deal out of guarding Emmy results. As if it’s something anyone cares to miscount or to steal…She jokingly
    called them out on it which was funny as heck! She made some quick witted comments regarding
    being hacked.

    Man, somebody must have REALLY hated Ghostbusters.

    IMO, Leslie’s always funny, and she seems most inspired when she’s disappointed by something in her life. I’m not sure they’ve ever had a better intro of the accountants at one of these things.

    Can’t for the life of me understand why some sick losers are targeting Leslie Jones. Saw her on Match Game and she is hilarious, haven’t laughed that hard in a long time. thanks Leslie, keep being you, don’t let the lowlife haters bring you down. You rock!

    This was the best comedic moment of the night. That took guts and opened herself up for more trolls but she owned it! She is hilarious and beautiful. She is my new hero!
