Leslie Jones is beloved for her talent and quick wit, but it appears certain fashion designers are not so keen.

Not so sweet tweet

Recently on writing on her Twitter page, the comedian vented her frustration about fashion designers who refused to lend her a dress for the upcoming Ghostbustersfilm. The movie is one of the most anticipated films of the summer and will most likely sell millions in tickets. Usually when an actress stars in a hit summer flick such as Ghostbusters, designers are clamoring to give her a gown.

Aside from her work, Leslie is noted for being one of the few successful African-American females in comedy. She is unapologetic about her appearance and embraces her natural look. The typical actress doesn’t look like Leslie, but that is why she is so special. However, many designers are uncomfortable extending their dresses for someone like Leslie. Why? Some will cite her amount of fame as a factor, but others are not use to designing for a tall African-American women.

Fighting back

Instead of hiding in shame, Leslie bought this ridiculous injustice to light via her Twitter page.

She wrote, “It's so funny how there are no designers wanting to help me with a premiere dress for movie. Hmmm that will change and I remember everything.”This brought a plethora of responses, good and bad. Despite the nasty trolls, there were a number of positive responses sent toward Leslie’s way. One of note was from fashion designer Christian Siriano, who offered to collaborate with Leslie for her premier gown.

A great match for the comedian, Siriano has been very vocal about the fashion being more inclusive to non-traditional model types and has dressed the likes of Christiana Hendricks and Danielle Brooks.

And if you’re worried about her accessories, the jewelry line Hearts On Fire has got Lesley covered, by tweeting, “@Lesdoggg We would love to help you with jewelry! Let us know if you need some sparkle for the premier!”

Ghostbusters will premiere soon, so keep an eye out for Leslie’s new frock at the premiere on July 9th.
