“Ghostbusters” actress and comedian Leslie Jones has faced a slur of racist remarks from Twitter users whom Jones exposes through screenshotting their posts. The actress was not having any of the spiteful comments targeting her race.

The “Ghostbusters” reboot has been a subject of hate ever since the all-female cast ensemble was announced. People complained on the set-up and accused the film of “ruining their childhood.” The film got a lot of angry fans so much so that its trailer turned up in the list of the most disliked Youtube videos.

The all-female cast -- Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones -- were targeted by indignant fans and online trolls, and the attacks just got worse since the movie’s premiere on July 14. However, Jones has received most of the hate just by having a different skin colour.

While many celebrities have faced offensive comments on their social media accounts, particularly Twitter, like Selena Gomez who is being criticised for her recent tweets relating to Taylor-Kanye feud, Jones did not do anything to invite such hate.

So instead of letting the bunch of Twitter trolls just get by, Jones took screenshots of their spiteful messages and posted them all on her timeline.

"You know I'm gonna stop blocking so y'all can go through my feed yourself and see the bs. You won't believe the evil. It's f****** scary," Jones tweeted.

Not long after, decent Twitter users came, posting well wishes to Jones for the movie, trying to replace the hateful comments with love. The hashtag #LoveforLeslieJ started, which was also used by “Ghostbusters” director Paul Feig in his personal tweet for Leslie.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey also tweeted, asking Jones to direct message him when Leslie pointed out Twitter's guidelines on free speech.

Currently, most tweets directed to Jones either congratulate her for the movie or congratulate her for bravely standing up against online bullying and racial discrimination.
