Leslie Jones Website Hack Under Investigation By Department Of Homeland Security

The investigation is currently open in New York.

The Department of Homeland Security is currently looking into the vicious hack on Leslie Jones’ website that occurred on Wednesday. Hackers exposed the comedian’s personal information and nude photos. 

“ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in New York does currently have an open investigation,” a spokeswoman for the Department of Homeland Security told Variety. “As a matter of agency policy, we are unable to disclose any information related to an active investigation.”

According to Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, the FBI is not currently involved

Jones’ private information, including her passport and driver’s license, along with stolen nude photos were posted on the star’s website. The responsible party also posted a video of Harambe, the gorilla who was shot and killed at the Cincinnati Zoo this summer, on the site.  

Jones’ team took the website down shortly after the hack. 

Upon hearing the news, plenty of celebrities rallied around the star and showed their support online with the hashtag #LoveForLeslieJ. 

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) also showed her support for the actress on Twitter Thursday afternoon.

Jones has not yet commented on the hack, but The Huffington Post has reached out to her representatives and will update this post accordingly.
