Leslie Jones is not happy with the plans for a new Ghostbusters remake, slamming it as "something Trump would do."
Hollywood director Jason Reitman is working on a new Ghostbusters project will continue the 1984 story and the 1989 sequel completely skipping over the 2016 Paul Feig reboot.
Jones took to Twitter to air her annoyance at the new direction:
"So insulting. Like f*ck us. We dint count. It’s like something trump would do. (Trump voice)”Gonna redo ghostbusteeeeers, better with men, will be huge. Those women ain’t ghostbusteeeeers” ugh so annoying. Such a d*ck move. And I don’t give f*ck I’m saying something!!"
Her reaction drew mixed reactions in the comment section:
"The 2016 remake failed in the box office, both in the US and internationally. It was a bad movie with bad writing. Get over it, it stank, and the global audience noticed it. Also, you're not a victim. Get over it. The 2016 sh*tfest is the real insult to the franchise," somebody wrote.
Another follower was more supportive, writing: "I get doing a reboot if it was gonna follow the original timeline & all 4 of the original were still alive, while also actively seeking a sequel or combining the two teams BUT they can't so whats the point?!? Imo, this is just a way to appease the misogynists."
And somebody else added: "Wait a minute...your film dudnt acknowledge the original...so im confused how thus is disrespectful but your version wasnr?"
