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

Leslie Jones Emmys 2016

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?”
