(NEW YORK) — In the wake of recent online trolling and attacks on her website, Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones is getting the support of a powerful political friend: Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
“@Lesdoggg, no one deserves this–least of all someone who brings us so much joy. I’m with you. -H,” Clinton tweeted at Jones Thursday. The ‘H’ on the end signifies it was tweeted by Clinton herself.

Jones was the target of several vicious racist attacks on Twitter, and earlier this week, her personal website — JustLeslie.com, which remains down — was hacked and personal information and photos leaked. ABC News Radio confirmed the cyber attack is currently being investigated by the Department of Homeland Security.
Clinton, who’s certainly experienced public attacks online and was the victim of a server hack, is one the latest celebrities to join in and show their support for Jones.
