FBI investigating Leslie Jones website hack

The FBI are searching for the person who hacked Leslie Jones' personal website.

After the 'Ghostbusters' actress' iCloud was hacked and personal information and naked pictures were posted on her website, the Federal Bureau of Investigation was called in to track down the perpetrators, according to TMZ.

Leslie's website, JustLeslie.com, was taken down after the attack, in which details from her driver's licence and passport were posted on the site.

The hacker uploaded a video in tribute to gorilla Harambe and positioned it at the top of the website.

Several selfies of the star alongside celebrities including Rihanna, Kim Kardashian West, Kanye West and 50 Cent were also shared.

This comes after Leslie was racially abused by vile trolls earlier this summer, leading to her quitting Twitter.

While she has since returned to the social media site, she recently revealed trolls obtained her personal email and started sending her death threats.

She said: "I was in my apartment by myself, and I felt trapped.

"When you're reading all these gay and racial slurs, it was like, I can't fight y'all. I didn't know what to do. Do you call the police? Then they got my email, and they started sending me threats that they were going to cut off my head and stuff they do to 'N words.' It's not done to express an opinion; it's done to scare you."

The 'Saturday Night Live' star has previously insisted she wasn't "hurt" by the insults as she's "used to" being racially abused, but was upset at being bombarded with messages by a gang of people.

She said: "The insults didn't hurt me. Unfortunately, I'm used to the insults.

"[What scared me] was the injustice of a gang of people jumping against you for such a sick cause.

"They really believe in what they believe in and it's so mean!"
