Leslie Jones’ website has been shut down, but the world is coming to her defense following an alleged hacker attack that revealed apparent nude photos of her and private personal information.

On Wednesday, Entertainment Weekly reported JustLeslie.com was deactivated after explicit photos, pictures of her passport, and a video of the gorilla Harambe, who was killed at the Cincinnati Zoo earlier this year, were posted to the site.

According to EW, Jones – the darling of the Rio Olympics with her excellent tweets – previously has been the target of racist comments.

Some of Jones’ famous fans took to Twitter to support her.

Katy Perry said, “Do not give your eyeballs to this racist, hate-filled, misogynoir crime”and her “Ghostbusters” director Paul Feig commented, “What’s happening is an absolute outrage. Alt right, haters, trolls, “comedians,” whoever the (expletive) you all are, you’re just sad.”

Her fan Melissa Ryan astutely remarked, “Leslie Jones was viciously cyber-attacked and Ryan Lochte is gonna be on ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ What the hell is wrong with us?”

LARRY KING’S WOES

Looks like octogenarian Larry King may be drawing up divorce proceedings – again.

The National Enquirer and Page Six report that Shawn, 57, his wife of nearly 20 years, has been cheating on him with an unidentified man – dubbed a “Hollywood Don Juan” who once was a “confidante to Princess Diana.”

The Enquirer says Shawn and her paramour have been enjoying “steamy afternoon sex sessions” and that she’s been sending him racy nude photos.

The pair, who have teen sons, filed for divorce in 2010 following allegations that the TV host, 82, was having an affair with her younger sister. But they called off what would have been the ninth divorce for Larry, who has had seven wives and been married eight times.

Page Six quoted a source close to Larry who said he was “heartbroken, embarrassed and furious.”
