Earlier this week, the “Ghostbusters” star shed light on the insane amount of racist messages she received on Twitter, prompting her to take a sabbatical and demand change. Well, it worked. After a meeting with Twitter CEO Jeff Dorsey, several hate-filled accounts were suspended, including Breitbart troll Milo Yiannopoulos. With suspensions and outpouring of support, Jones returned and thanked everyone for the love.

Also, while on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” Leslie clarified why she took a break from Twitter in the first place.

“I didn’t leave. I just signed out because I wanted to deal with what was going on. What’s scary about the whole thing is that 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. It’s so gross and mean and unnecessary,” she said. “If I hadn’t said anything, nobody would have ever known about this. All those people would still have an account.”

Welcome back, Leslie! #LoveForLeslieJ
