She's with her. Hillary Clinton tweeted her support for Leslie Jones on Thursday, August 25, one day after the Ghostbusters star's website was hacked, and the Democratic presidential nominee had some kind words to offer the actress. Nude photos of Jones, in addition to a racist video, were uploaded to her site. Jones's website was taken down shortly after the hack occurred early Wednesday.
A DHS spokesperson told Variety, "ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in NY does now have an open investigation".
ICE Public Affairs Officer Rachael Yong Yow said the agency does not release information related to active investigations.
"The investigation is now ongoing", Yow said in an email, adding, "In order to protect the integrity of the case, no further details are available at this time". "You can hate the movie but the (comments) I got today.wrong", Jones tweeted in July before her brief absence from social media.
Variety, which first reported news of the Homeland Security investigation Wednesday morning, also wrote that a spokesperson at the FBI said the agency is not involved in investigating the hacking incident.
According to TMZ, someone accessed Jones' personal webpage and posted nude pictures of the Ghostbusters actress as well as driver's licence and passport details.
Jones and Clinton have crossed paths before - Clinton appeared in a Saturday Night Live sketch with Kate McKinnon, who impersonates her on the show, and the Ghostbusters cast and Clinton appeared on the same episode of The Ellen Degeneres Show this summer. "I #StandWithLeslie", Perry added to her 92.1 million Twitter followers. She came back when the co-founder of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, banned the grand wizard of the racist trolls, Milo Yiannopoulos.
