|According to the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, the hacking of Ghostbusters actor Leslie Jones is investigated by the Department of Homeland Security after her personal details and nude images were leaked online.
The inquiry launched less than a day after JustLeslie.com was attacked by hackers who reportedly published images of her driver’s license and passport, as well as explicit photos perhaps originating from her iCloud account. Besides, Leslie Jones’
website was defaced with a video of the gorilla Harambe, which was a clear racist attack against the actor, who has faced harassment and online bullying in 2016.
Leslie Jones is not the first victim whose hack is investigated by federal officials – the DHS agents led an investigation in 2015 that resulted in the arrest of a Bahamian man, who had allegedly hacked into celebrities’ email accounts looking for unreleased movie and TV scripts and private sex tapes. The man reportedly said that he had dossiers on at least 130 accounts of stars and executives in the entertainment industry.
Besides, the FBI also investigated the attack on Jennifer Lawrence, whose explicit photos were exposed two years ago, allegedly originating from her iCloud account. Back in 2015, Sony Pictures co-chair was forced to leave her position after the embarrassing emails with racially insensitive remarks about Barack Obama were revealed in result of the hack. At the time, North Korea was suspected of the attack.
Meanwhile, many celebrities have tweeted their support for Leslie Jones, with commentators noting that black women in powerful positions often face harassment and racist attacks. Twitter even had to permanently ban a British columnist who had aggressively targeted the comic.

|She is so incredibly talented! The hate in humanity is just soul crushing.my heart goes out to her!!|
|Why is this getting Whitehouse support? If it happened to you DHS couldn't care less.|
And posting a gorilla is "a clear racist attack" only to a racist. Catch-22.
|You would think that by now those idiot celeb's wouldn't post naked pictures of them selves any where unless they do indeed want them "leaked", as far as being powerful, celeb's give themselves way too much credit. I could care less if some BOZO from hollyweird supports Hillary Clinton.|
BTW.....R.I.P. GENE WILDER

|I for one think she deserved it. She's as much a racist as anyone can be and she's not funny at all -- being loud/obnoxious in every SNL skit she's ever been in doesn't make her funny.|

|christ would you really want to see her naked? Really? My guess is its a hoax she manufactured to get attention and free publicity.|
...the hacking of Ghostbusters actor Leslie Jones is investigated...
...the hacking of Ghostbusters actor Leslie Jones'- site or personal online accounts- is/are investigated...
Leslie Jones in not the hacker she is the victim of hacking.
Title is misleading as well. Again, the actor is not a hacker but the victim of hacking.
Homeland Security investigating Actor's Hacked Website.
Journalism 101 my friend.
Although I tend to agree, this may be a ruse to erode even more civil liberties by Team Homeland.
