The star fell into "personal hell" after the online abuse she suffered
Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones has rejoined social networking site Twitter three days after she was forced to quit after intensive online abuse. The actress shared the "personal hell" she had been through at the hands of cyber bullies since the release of the 1980s reboot.
Leslie Jones has suffered online abuse as a result of appearing in a reboot of 1980s classic, Ghostbusters
The star told her followers some of the hate-filled and racist abuse she had received and admitted she felt "numb" by all of the hate mail and declared she had had enough.
Leslie, 48, wrote: "I feel like I’m in a personal hell. I didn’t do anything to deserve this. It’s just too much. It shouldn’t be like this. So hurt right now.
"I leave Twitter tonight with tears and a very sad heart. All this cause I did a movie. You can hate the movie but the s**t I got today...wrong."
Journalist Milo Yiannopoulous, 32, who tweeted under the name of @Nero has since been banned from Twitter for inciting the racist abuse Jones had to suffer.
Many people came out in support of the star including model Chrissy Teigen and original Ghostbusters star, Dan Ackroyd.
When she logged back on, Jones wrote: "Welp... a b**ch thought she could say away. But who else is gonna live tweet Game of Thrones!!"
She also thanked all of her supporters and wrote: "Thanks for the love and support I received! Made me feel real special."
