‘Ghostbusters’ star Leslie Jones busts racist ‘cyberbullies’

/ 02:30 PM July 19, 2016

Leslie Jones, who plays the role of quirky New Yorker Patty Tolan in the reboot of “Ghostbusters,” had blazed tons of evil, wandering spirits in the critically acclaimed film. Now she is combating racist “ghosts” who continue to bully her on social media.

As seen in her burning tweets on her Twitter account, Jones, 48, is busting “Twitter trolls” who bombarded her with discriminatory tirades.

Jones, a “Saturday Night Live” mainstay comedienne, also posted screen grabs of malicious tweets.

Jones said she would continue to “pound” racist users who try to put her spirits down. She has a short message for her fellow users who advise her to ignore her cyber bullies.
