Leslie Jones’ return to Twitter following horrific racist and sexual attacks can only be described as beautifully triumphant.
She also explicitly declared her power and strength.
Since returning to Twitter, we’ve been able to watch Leslie #SlayAllDay while living her best life — the only way she knows how to live, tbh.
For example, she was kind enough to let us in on the excitement of Kanye West’s Saint Pablo tour stop at Madison Square Garden.
This weekend, our envy increased when our joyous queen went to Sia’s performance, too!
Ugh, look at her dancing. I really cannot fully express my love for Leslie Jones.
But that was far from the best part of Leslie’s evening. Case in point — this photo:
Two of entertainment’s most incredible women in a single picture.
Also, can we talk about how both of these stars are in their 40s and have made huge accomplishments in an industry known for treating women past a certain age as disposable? Leslie Jones, who just celebrated her 49th birthday, didn’t break into the mainstream until her late ’40s. And just a few months ago, Sia became the first woman in her 40s to have a No. 1 song in 16 years!
In the caption for her selfie with Sia, Leslie wrote, “This woman is a treasure!!” And while that is absolutely, 100 percent accurate, it would be even more accurate if it said, “These WOMEN are treasures!!”
