elle leslie jones

Elle Magazine has did a first for it’s editorial by releasing their first-ever Women In Comedy issue. For the inaugural cover, the cast of the upcoming Ghostbusters each got a chance to show off their cover poses. The four main women of the comedy got a chance to shine within the pages, but it seems that one in particular is shining a little brighter than the rest. Leslie Jones ended up getting an outpour of support ¬†for her cover look from several people in comedy. From comedians to fans; Jones support mostly highlighted her long journey within the comedy ranks to now gracing the cover of Elle.

Here’s what some had to say about Jones’s cover via social media;

  • Chris Rock: I told you she was funny.
  • Kevin Hart: Wooooooow….This made me smile this A.M. Major congrats to @lesdogggg on such a amazing cover.

  • Sherri Shepherd: All your struggles @lesdogggg …Selling your comedy cd’s outside the clubs in LA just trying to make some money… When you thought about giving up because nobody would give you a shot.
