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.”

The My Girl star continued by comparing Leslie’s haters to people who support Donald Trump:

“These people, first of all, they’re insignificant gnats. “They have no lives of their own, they can barely pay for the wi-fi they’re using, probably no jobs. I would say you’re looking at obese, white men between 50 and 60, who are active Klan members or members of the Aryan Nation, and there are millions of them.”


“I’m afraid to say that that contingency will be voting for the republican ticket, pretty much that’s what the statistics are indicating, that there’s a lot of white racist hatred out there that’s going to channel into a support for the republican ticket, maybe in the false belief that these people share their views. I don’t think that Trump and [vice presidential nominee Mike] Pence are as racist as the people who attacked Leslie Jones, I really don’t. Trump may be saying some things to go that way to get some votes but ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ well I don’t know.”

Okay, Dan — Tell us how you really feel!

Regardless to if the comparison is true, we’re happy to see celebs standing up for the funny lady!
