The new Ghostbusters movie came out, hit second in box office sales, and got some good reviews. But one of the stars, Leslie Jones, hasn't had much time to celebrate--because of the hatred she's getting on Twitter.

On Monday, she decided to stop blocking trolls and start sharing the often racist posts with her followers.

And she's getting a lot of support.

But also more trouble, when someone started up PhotoShop.

UPDATE: Conservative firebrand Milo Yiannopoulos just got banned from Twitter for his role in trolling Jones.

Does the Internet have a serious problem with trolls and racists?
