Dan Aykroyd Compares The 'Insignificant Gnats' Who Are Bullying Leslie Jones To Donald Trump Supporters

Dan Aykroyd and Leslie Jones

Dan Aykroyd has something to say about Leslie Jones' online bullies.

As we reported, the 48-year-old SNL star has been dealing with some horrific abuse on Twitter by all kinds of low-life's, racists, and trolls — and the OG Ghostbuster isn't here for it!

Speaking to ET on Tuesday, Aykroyd defended Miz Jones:

"Well first of all she's a great writer, great comedian and comes from a real urban background where she had a lot of hardship and she's channelling that into a great achievement and a great career."

Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, & Leslie Jones Destroy Misogynistic Trolls With The OG Ghostbusters — Watch!

Who you gonna call? Why, the original cast, of course!

There's only about a month until Ghostbusters gets rebooted with an all-female cast, which means there's less time than ever for misogynistic trolls to judge the movie before even getting a chance to see it.

Luckily, Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones don't seem too annoyed by their haters… because they know they're really just 45-year-old men living in their parents' basements! LOLz!!!

The Saturday Night Live regulars stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday to chat about the upcoming horror/comedy, and ended up getting a surprise of their own when the OG 'busters joined them onstage!

During the eight-way interview, Bill Murray, Annie Potts, Ernie Hudson, and Dan Aykroyd officially gave their slimy blessing to the ladies while admitting they were a little nervous about the remake themselves at first.

We can't imagine Bill saying he found the new film to be funny if it really were a dud… so we can't wait to see it when it possesses theaters July 15!

We hope they didn't cross streams!

To celebrate the anniversary of the original film's 1984 premiere, the director shared an EPIC photo on Twitter featuring both the old and new casts of the ghostly comedy!

What's even better is that both casts will appear together on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night! AH-Mazing!

Ghostbusters Star Dan Aykroyd Defends Remake, Saying 'It Has More Laughs And More Scares' Than Original!

no title

Ever since the first trailer dropped for the new Ghostbusters movie, there has been A LOT of backlash from fans.

The overwhelming hue and cry was that the new film was sullying the franchise, much of which sadly seems to be fueled by sexism over the gender-swapping of the leads.

Of course it didn't help the negative chatter when star Melissa McCarthy admitted the trailer was confusing, not to mention the toys look like they're strictly marketed towards little boys.

But in the midst of all this dislike, Dan Aykroyd, one of the stars of the ORIGINAL spooky comedy, took to Facebook to share his thoughts after seeing the remake — and he LOVED it!

Rick Moranis Reveals He ISN'T Retired & Explains Why He Turned Down A Cameo In The Ghostbusters Reboot!

Filed under: Film Flickers

Don't believe everything you read on Wikipedia!

Well, for those of you who thought Rick Moranis had stopped making movies for good, think again!

The actor took an 18-year hiatus after his wife, Ann, passed away from breast cancer in 1997. He left the industry to focus his time and energy on raising his two kids.

But he insists that he didn't retire way back then — like his Wikipedia page had said — because now that his children have become adults, he's ready to get back in the game, saying:

"I took a break, which turned into a longer break. But I'm interested in anything that I would find interesting. I still get the occasional query about a film or television role and as soon as one comes along that piques my interest, I'll probably do it. [But Ghostbusters] didn't appeal to me."

The 62-year-old, who had starred in the first two Ghostbusters flicks back in the '80s, admitted that he turned down a cameo spot in Paul Feig's female-led reboot. Now, he's explaining why:

"I wish them well I hope it's terrific. But it just makes no sense to me. Why would I do just one day of shooting on something I did 30 years ago?"

Even though he thoroughly enjoyed acting, and hopes to get back into it eventually, the Canadian entertainer says he wouldn't trade his time off for anything:
