American actress and comedian Leslie Jones, fresh from charming the Internet with her excitable support of athletes at the Olympic Games in Rio, has been the victim of more online harassment. After suffering through a barrage of racist hate during the release of Ghostbusters, Jones quit and returned to Twitter. But now it appears her personal website and iCloud account have been hacked, with the culprits leaking personal information and nude photos of her online.

The online trolls posted images and personal details of the 48-year-old comedy star, including scans of her driving licence and passport, as well as many photographs of her. In the wake of the attack, Jones’s website JustLeslie.com has been taken down and now redirects to a generic GoDaddy page.

While Jones has not yet publicly commented on the cyber attack, she has been championed by many celebrities, including director Paul Feig, who also was the victim of homophobic vitriol during the release of Ghostbusters.

Fellow members of the entertainment industry are tweeting messages of solidarity with Jones, drawing attention to the intentions of her hackers.
