“ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in New York does currently have an open investigation,” the Department of Homeland Security told us on Thursday. “As a matter of agency policy, we are unable to disclose any information related to an active investigation.”
And that may not be the only government group hot on the case. Earlier this morning, TMZ reported that the FBI was “developing a strategy for tracking down” Jones’ hacker.
The hacker(s) commandeered the “Ghostbusters” star’s Tumblr on Wednesday morning, posting personal photos from her iCloud account, which included several nude shots as well as pictures of her passport and driver license. Jones’ phone number and the password to her Twitter account were also displayed.
Jones first rose to prominence on “Saturday Night Live,” where she has been a cast member since 2013. The comedian recently served as a special correspondent for NBC at the 2016 Rio Olympics after enthusiastically tweeting about the Summer Games.
She had been publicly feuding on social media with Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos, leading to a Twitter ban for the polarizing political figure. Many believe the hack was retribution by a Yiannopoulos fan.
