Writer Milo Yiannopoulos has been banned from the site after he was accused of leading a harassment campaign against the ‘Ghostbusters’ star.
Twitter has permanently banned right-wing writer Milo Yiannopoulos days after actress Leslie Jones revealed the extend of the racist abuse she’d been receiving on the social media site. Yiannopoulos, a writer for Breitbart, had been accused of inciting his followers to send the actress racist and abusive messages.

In a statement to Buzzfeed, a spokesperson for Twitter said: “People should be able to express diverse opinions and beliefs on Twitter. But no one deserves to be subjected to targeted abuse online, and our rules prohibit inciting or engaging in the targeted abuse or harassment of others.”
Director Paul Feig then leapt to Jones' defence with the hashtag #LoveForLeslieJ, after she re-posted a number of the offending comments.
Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones has described the “personal hell” she’s endured after suffering a string of racist and misogynistic tweets, with director Paul Feig sparking a backlash movement against the trolls in coming to her defence.

Ghostbusters is a new film for 2016 and is based on the 1984 film of the same name and is directed by Paul Feig. The film features four women on their quest to save New York City when various ghosts take over and exercise control over the humans.
Two authors Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates write a novel about the existence of ghosts and the revelation that they believe they do exist. However this novel is not taken seriously and when it becomes apparent that Gilbert wrote this book, she becomes the centre of a joke in her professional career as a teacher at Columbia University, even her students don't take her seriously.
This film quickly becomes the tell - tale narrative of who's laughing now, when Gilbert teams up with Yates and two other women to fight the ghosts that have decided to inhabit the city. A mission is deployed and the quartet set out to save the world from the evil ghost Rowan, providing the audience with lots of laughs along the way.
It’s an unfortunate honour for the upcoming female-led reboot.
