I DONT GIVE TWO SHITS WHAT A MUTHAFUCKA THINK IM A GHOSTBUSTER BITCH!! pic.twitter.com/sVGvo1t8Zv— Leslie Jones (@Lesdoggg) December 17, 2015
You hear that, folks? Leslie Jones is a Ghostbuster. Deal with it. Accept it. It’s happening! Let’s hope it’s special. So far, I’m honestly digging what the new movie is selling. The four ladies – who include Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon, in addition to Jones – bring attitude and swagger to the four character posters that were released yesterday. In fact, it’s likely the reaction TO her character poster that set Leslie Jones off. Or maybe not. Maybe she’s just spouting off, because later on her Twitter feed, she also thought Ghostbusters should get preferential treatment around NYC.
ATTENTION CAB DRIVERS FUCKING STOP AND PICK A BITCH UP IM A GHOSTBUSTER!! GEEEEZ!— Leslie Jones (@Lesdoggg) December 18, 2015
Yeah, she might just be on a Ghostbusting power trip. Either way, we love it.
If you still watch Saturday Night Live, you know that Leslie Jones makes her bones being opinionated. She appears in skits, but her bread and butter routine is a guest spot on Weekend Update where she flirts with co-anchor Colin Jost and commenting on social topics. If any of the four Ghostbuster stars was going to spout off and defend the project against the unfair waves of criticism, my money would have been on Jones. Good for her for firing back.
The best way to shut down the haters, though, would be to deliver an entertaining movie. And we’ll know for sure whether Paul Feig and his cast pulled that off in July, when the latest Ghostbusters movie hits theaters. Until then, we’ll anticipate the trailer, and continue to comment on the marketing, which includes the attitude-laden posters that, personally, I thought worked quite well. What did you guys think?
