SNL's Leslie Jones Riffs on Getting Hacked in Weekend Update Segment

Leslie Jones on Saturday took to SNL‘s Weekend Update desk to address her terrible, horrible, no good, very bad summer.

During a timely monologue on cyber security, Jones touched on her own trouble with computer hackers. As you’ll recall, the Ghostbusters scene stealer was the victim of non-stop Twitter harassment for her part in this summer’s all-female reboot, and later found some very personal photos stolen from her phone and uploaded to her official website.

In addressing those responsible, Jones said that stealing nude photos of her is no big deal, and if anybody really wanted hers, all they had to do was “just ask.” She also suggested that those capable of such heinous cyber crimes should put their impressive computer skills to better use.

“[I]f I was good at computers, I wouldn’t waste it trolling on people,” she said. “I would do something useful, like renew my driver’s license from home. I would hack into Tinder and delete all those other girls’ profiles so no matter where you swipe, you get me.”

In the end, Jones seemed unfazed by the recent hack, telling viewers, “At a certain point you stop being embarrassed and start being you, and I have been me for 49 years. The only person who can hack me is me, and my firewall is a crazy bitch with a shovel.”

What did you think of Jones’ Weekend Update monologue? Did she go too easy on those who violated her privacy and nearly ran her off social media?

    It was perfection itself. You are fantastic, Ms. Jones!

  2. George says:

    Good for her. That was mean the way the entire internet attacked her. The rest of the cast of ghostbusters to. I loveeeeee the originals one of my best memories as a kid was seeing them in theaters and I found the all female version to be funny in it’s own way. I also loved the Mr. Robot skit they did about this in the first episode. That was perfect.

  3. She doesn’t care because she’s the one who leaked them.

  4. Jeanna says:

    She was great. Laugh out loud funny. Great sketches this week plus Lady Gaga. So glad to see SNL so strong again.

    She has a good attitude about it. She’s still unfunny and the movie was awful but she can’t be blamed for that, everything and everyone in it was awful.

  7. Kelly Ray says:

    If she was truly so unfazed by the hacking and the unwanted Twitter comments, why was she so vocally upset and crying for so many weeks? No one should get mad when you get called out or shown out for what you really are.
