Hillary Clinton is coming to the defense of Leslie Jones in the wake of the nude photo hack that saw Jones’ personal website get taken down on Wednesday.

“[Leslie] no one deserves this–least of all someone who brings us so much joy. I’m with you,” Clinton tweeted on Thursday, playing on the popular #ImWithHer hashtag that the Clinton campaign often uses.

On Wednesday, an unidentified hacker commandeered Jones’ Tumblr, posting personal photos from her iCloud account, which included several nude shots as well as pictures of her passport and driver’s license.

Jones’ phone number and the password to her Twitter account were also displayed.

The hacker replaced the top of Jones’ website with the image of an exchange from last month between Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and the WikiLeaks’ Twitter account over the fallout from online abuse toward the “Ghostbusters” actress on the social media platform.

The social media platform banned Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos for “inciting or engaging in the targeted abuse or harassment of others” for a series of Tweets against Jones. WikiLeaks called action taken by Twitter on Jones’ behalf “cyber feudalism” and argued that the actress had been similarly provocative toward other users.

Jones had posted examples of racist and misogynist abuse she had received on the platform, including tweets by Yiannopoulous.
