The Department of Homeland Security has confirmed that they are investigating the attack which revealed private and intimate photos of the "Ghostbusters" actress.
A spokeswoman for the FBI field office in NY said the agency is not involved in the investigation. "As a matter of agency policy, we are unable to disclose any information related to an active investigation". She came back after the co-founder of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, personally stepped in and banned the accused ringleader of the Jones trolls, Milo Yiannopoulos.
According to the New York Daily News, the 48-year-old comedienne's driver's license and passport bearing her personal information was also posted on her site, along with a video of a gorilla (Harambe) killed at the Cincinnati Zoo earlier this year.
When Jones took the decision to temporarily leave Twitter in July, she was clearly frustrated by the abuse being aimed at her, admitting that she was trying to "figure out what human means", before stating she was leaving Twitter.
Since she attended the remake version of girls S.O.S. Ghosts, Leslie Jones is regularly the target of offensive attacks.
"I'm not stupid to not know racism exists", Jones wrote on Twitter.
Jones' "Saturday Night Live" co-stars were very vocal about their support.
According to TMZ, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is trying to find out who exactly hacked Jones' iCloud account and phone. She made her return a few days later, reminding us that her Twitter presence is gold-medal worthy, and then she got invited to tweet at the Olympics because she slays all day.
