Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones has found herself to be a target for Twitter trolls.

Following a series of racist and offensive tweets, many of them criticizing her appearance, Jones, 48, took to Twitter on Monday to defend herself.

“Some people on here are f—ing disgusting. I’m blocking your filthy ass if retweet that perverted s—. Just know that now b—-es!!,” Jones wrote, adding in additional tweets, “Ok I have been called Apes, sent pics of their asses, even got a pic with semen on my face. I’m tryin to figure out what human means. I’m out.”

However, Jones then decided to stop blocking the trolls so that her fans could “go through my feed yourself and see the bs. You won’t believe the evil. It’s f—ing scary.”

Jones continued later on, tweeting that she now understands why certain celebs don’t have social media, as the hate she’s been receiving is scary.

“You have to hate yourself to putout that type of hate. I mean on my worst day I can’t think of this type of hate to put out,” she tweeted. “I don’t know how to feel. I’m numb. I see the words and pics and videos. Videos y’all. Meaning people took time to spew hate.”

However, it wasn’t long before fellow actresses and comediennes Loni Love and Margaret Cho came to Jones’ defense.

“Stand with @Lesdogg #loveforlesliej she is an inspiration and a legend in the making,” Cho tweeted.

Judd Apatow and John Boyega also stepped in, sending their love and support to Jones.

“We love you Leslie Jones. The people who behave like that have to live with themselves. And that must be painful,” wrote Apatow.
