NEW YORK (AP) — Leslie Jones went to one of the most public of stages — the one at the Emmy Awards — to joke about her privacy woes on social media.

During a routine Sunday saluting Ernst & Young accountants, the “Saturday Night Live” actress addressed three of the firm’s representatives.

“Since you good at keeping things safe, I got a job for you — my Twitter account,” she said. “Put that in the vault, please.”

The “Ghostbusters” star had been harassed with racist messages on social media and her website was hacked in late August. Her passport, a driver’s license, multiple nude photos and other private information was posted online.

“I just wanted to feel beautiful,” she joked at the Emmys. “Can a sister feel beautiful?”
