Leslie Jones is leading with true transparency with her memoir, “Leslie F*cking Jones: A Memoir.” In an excerpt from her book, the comedian and actress recounted “being bullied” on Twitter for starring in the 2016 remake of “Ghostbusters.” While the members of the all-women cast faced misogyny online, Jones, as a Black woman, was also hit with racism and death threats. The hate she received became extreme, to the point that she pulled down her Twitter account.
