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."

Seth MacFarlane and the FOX network have said “no arigato” to the Media Action Network for Asian Americans’ suggestion that they reshoot at least one scene of Dads — a scene the group finds offensive to Asians.
In the scene in question, the lead characters, two young white men, compel a female Asian employee to dress as a stereotypical sexy schoolgirl and giggle behind her hands to satisfy Chinese customers.
Wait, WHAT THE HELL is this show about? ‘Cause it sounds possibly racist, but maybe also hot?
We’re feeling very confused now.

And the Big Brother fallout continues…
Cast member GinaMarie Zimmerman, who offensively referred to welfare as "n**ger insurance" during the CBS show’s live broadcast, has been fired by the East Coast USA Pageant, Inc.
Though GinaMarie has been under their employ for the last five years, the company said they could not believe her "acts of hate and racism."

The Food Network had the right idea with Paula Deen.
Following the onslaught of racial and homophobic slurs on Big Brother’s fifteenth season, it seems the network hasn’t quite decided how to go about dealing with this PR nightmare.
Yet, the reality show’s Aaryn Gries, guilty of calling a gay houseguest “queer” and similarly offending her Asian-American and African-American housemates, has already begun to deal with the consequences of her actions.
Zephyr Talent, Aaryn’s Texas modeling agency, just announced that they will no longer be representing her as a result of her horrible statements. They said:
