“Saturday Night Live” cast member Leslie Jones is not afraid of hackers—even though she has been a target.

“If you want to see Leslie Jones naked, just ask,” she said on the “Weekend Update” segment of the show. Hackers posted personal information, including nude photos, on her website in August, leading to an investigation by the Homeland Security Department.

Prior to that, Jones dealt with a barrage of Twitter trolls in the lead up to the all-female remake of “Ghostbusters.” Twitter banned Milo Yiannopoulos, a Breitbart technology editor, for his role in directing online abuse toward Jones.

“If I was good at computers, I wouldn’t waste it trolling on people," Jones said. "I would do something useful like renew my driver’s license from home."
