Leslie Jones Slams Guys For Ghosting, Says Its Disrespectful To The Other Person’s Feelings

People love Leslie Jones! The comedian has brought laughs to many from her time being on Saturday Night Live, to her unforgettable role in Chris Rock‘s Top Five. Jones has always been candid about her life, specifically dating experiences. A recent tweet from the comedian shared a not so funny perspective of how she feels about those who “ghost” others though.

To “ghost” someone as defined by Urban Dictionary means “to avoid someone until they get the picture and stop contacting you.” Jones took to Twitter to share her disdain for all “dudes and dudettes” who ghost their partners, referring to them as “cowards.”

“Dudes and dudettes who ghost are cowards,” the Memphis native began in her post. “Maybe they think that if they don’t respond the whole thing just never happened? They do not have the courage to be honest and their manners are poor. I think ghosting is one of the cruelest things you can do — avoid someone because you don’t want to tell them the truth, leave someone hanging?! It’s so disrespectful of the other person’s feelings!”

Jones was immediately flooded with supportive messages from fans who also have been through similar situations. “I literally just had someone ghost me and it made me feel like human garbage. thank you for the reminder <3,” tweeted one user. Another sadly wrote, “This is happening to me currently. ‘I will get back to you ASAP!’ And then nada.” One fan even claimed that her mother recently ghosted her, then sent a message of encouragement that “we got this.”

Jones’s dating life seemingly hasn’t been easy, when in 2018 she shared a photo on Instagram of herself after a workout session. The SNL star captioned the photo, “Ok back to cardio. But confession I feel like I’m doing it for nothing. I know it not [sic] I’m healthy and look good but I really feel like ‘what’s it all for’ if the people you want to notice don’t. I just feel like I might die alone. Sorry, that’s pretty heavy today!!”

While on a press run for Coming To America, Jones appeared on The Wendy Williams Show where she spoke more on her dating experiences after the talk show host inquired. “You might as well be asking about my corns,” Jones hilariously responded. “My corns are doing better than the men in my life. You know I got on that Hinge thing? That little new [app] — that says ‘You gotta erase us.. I think I have to erase Hinge for a whole different reason.”

She added, “The men are broken,” before then pointing out some of the men in the audience. Jones continued, “You know y’all always talk about how women are crazy — y’all need to go talk to somebody too. Okay? We not all crazy, y’all just broken.”

As her bad luck goes with dating, so did her experience with the dating app – Hinge. Jones shared that she had issues with her account due to her being a celebrity. “What happened was, you know — I’m Leslie Jones,” she explained to Wendy. “So they were like ‘Why’s Leslie Jones on a dating app? It must be a fake account.’ So they thought it was a fake account — somebody probably reported me as a fake account.“

After all of that, she shared how she was able to get it reactivated. “I went back on Twitter and was like ‘Umm, excuse me, Hinge — it’s me. Why can’t I find no love, Hinge? No love, Hinge?!’”
