The comedian plays the role of Patty in the movie and owns some of the funniest scenes in the movie. Yet, on the premiere of the movie, she complained that most designers had refused to dress her for the red carpet.
She still dazzled in an amazing red dress and sparkling jewelry all over. Following that, Leslie started to receive tweets on her account about the movie, her performance and overall racist and misogynist messages so much saw that Leslie reacted to them in hurt words. Twitter was persuaded by many to take action against those who were targeting the star but none was taken.
Atlast, Leslie decided to leave Twitter with a heavy heart. “I leave Twitter tonight with tears and a very sad heart,” Jones wrote on Tuesday. “All this cause I did a movie. You can hate the movie but the s— I got today… wrong.”
