Leslie Jones Deserves a Gold Medal For Her Hilarious Olympics Coverage
If the Olympics had an event for live tweeting, Leslie Jones would sweep the competition. Despite an up and down relationship with Twitter lately thanks to a negative experience with racist trolls, the Ghostbusters actress has been covering the 2016 Summer Olympics with her signature humour. Between thoughts about what Michael Phelps might be jamming out to before a race ("Please tell me Michael Phelps is listening to Drake right now") and her absolutely hilarious commentary during events like kayaking and bike races, even NBC has taken notice. Executive producer Jim Bell spotted the buzz around Leslie's tweets and offered her the chance to come down to the games in Rio. Although she might not be able to drop quite as many F-bombs on live TV, here's hoping we get to hear Leslie's outrageous stream of consciousness until the Olympics wind down at the end of August.
