Web Roundup: Leslie Jones’ Twitter harassment and, now, a hack

Hosted by

Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones found herself on the receiving end of all kinds of ugly harassment from Twitter trolls after she starred in the all-female reboot of “Ghostbusters.” And now she’s on the receiving end of a hack. Since her big presence at the Rio Olympics boosted her Twitter following by more than 200,000, her website has been hacked and federal investigators are getting involved. Xeni Jardin joins Press Play to talk about that and other web news.
