Leslie Jones Shuts Down Haters Over Her 'Ghostbusters' Role

The actress says the movie shouldn't be about men, women or class.

Leslie Jones ain't afraid of no critics.

After the release of the trailer for the new "Ghostbusters" reboot, Jones' character is being criticized for supposedly perpetuating stereotypes.

Her co-stars, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon are all reportedly playing scientists, while Jones is a street-smart MTA employee.

"Why can't a regular person be a ghostbuster," Jones tweeted. "I'm confused," before adding, "Just go see the movie!"

The actress continued, tweeting support for everyday people and adding that if she's a stereotype, "Then so be it!!"

Jones said it's not about men, women, race or class. It's a "Ghostbuster thang!!"

After retweeting fans who showed their support and sending out a note from an MTA employee who hoped Jones would bring the often abused position some "humanness," the actress then dropped the mic on all the haters.

The "Ghostbusters" reboot is set to hit theaters July 15.
