Leslie Jones has had her personal website hacked to reveal naked images of her.

According to gossip website TMZ, someone got into her webpage on Wednesday and posted nude pictures of the Ghostbusters actress as well as details from her driver's licence and passport.

The hacker also uploaded a video in tribute to gorilla Harambe and positioned it at the top of the site.

It is thought pictures of the 48-year-old star were obtained via her phone or iCloud.

Her website, JustLeslie.com, was taken down after the attack and is yet to reappear at the time of writing.

Several selfies of the star alongside celebrities including Rihanna, Kim Kardashian West, Kanye West and 50 Cent were also posted.

This comes after Leslie was racially abused by vile trolls earlier this summer, leading to her quitting Twitter.

While she has since returned to the social media site, she recently revealed trolls obtained her personal email and started sending her death threats.

She said: "I was in my apartment by myself, and I felt trapped.

"When you're reading all these gay and racial slurs, it was like, I can't fight y'all. I didn't know what to do. Do you call the police? Then they got my email, and they started sending me threats that they were going to cut off my head and stuff they do to 'N words.' It's not done to express an opinion, it's done to scare you."

The Saturday Night Live star has previously insisted she wasn't "hurt" by the insults as she's "used to" being racially abused, but was upset at being bombarded with messages by a "gang" of people.

She said: "The insults didn't hurt me. Unfortunately, I'm used to the insults.

"[What scared me] was the injustice of a gang of people jumping against you for such a sick cause.

"They really believe in what they believe in and it's so mean!"
