Leslie Jones has unfortunately become the most recent celebrity to be viciously attacked by internet trolls who have hurled racist remarks and abuse against her, leading her to quit Twitter. Twitter managers have been accused of not doing enough to prevent online attacks and for not acting quick enough in banning the trolls.
