Hark, another explosion of celebrity outrage…
SNL personality Leslie Jones was triggered over the announcement of the latest “Ghostbusters” sequel – one that looks to move the franchise beyond the dumpster fire of the 2016 all-girls version that Jones starred in.
In one of her trademark Twitter temper tantrums, the comic/actress called the upcoming film a “dick move” and “something that Trump would do” in a profanity-drenched social media missive.
Via The Hollywood Reporter, ‘”Leslie Jones Slams New ‘Ghostbusters’ Film: “It’s Like Something Trump Would Do”‘:
In response to the news that Jason Reitman’s new Ghostbusters project will continue the story that began with Ivan Reitman’s 1984 original and its 1989 sequel — and ignore the female reboot from director Paul Feig in 2016 — Leslie Jones, a castmember from the latter, has voiced her disappointment on social media.
The comedian on Saturday took to Twitter in a post that said, “So insulting. Like fuck us. We dint count. It’s like something trump would do. (Trump voice) ”Gonna redo ghostbusteeeeers, better with men, will be huge. Those women ain’t ghostbusteeeeers” ugh so annoying. Such a dick move. And I don’t give fuck I’m saying something!!”
Jones tagged her fellow Ghostbusters co-star Melissa McCarthy, along with Reitman. So far there have been no responses from anyone involved in the new film, which has received backlash since the announcement of its intent. In England, a journalist wrote an “open letter to Jason Reitman,” citing his missed opportunity.
It’s far from the first time that the thin-skinned, easily-triggered actress has gone off either.
Previously, she led the charge to get alt-right gadfly Milo Yiannopoulos banned from Twitter because he said mean things about her; challenged “F*CKFACE” HUD Secretary Ben Carson to a fistfight, accused an Atlanta restaurant of racism because of a bad dining experience and railed against “Ghostbusters” critics as – you guessed it – sexists and racists.
One can’t help to get the idea that this is just one miserable person who will never be happy – at least until a cure for Trump Derangement Syndrome is discovered.
