Nothing is off-limits for Leslie Jones’ stand-up routine.
“If I see another 45-year-old white woman from Williamsburg
saying ‘black lives matter,’ I’m going to punch you in the
mouth,” the “Saturday Night Live” star said during her recent
four-night stint at New York comedy club, Carolines on Broadway.
“Stop doing that.”
In what the New York Times dubbed “a raucous, high-volume” set,
the 49-year-old’s politically focused act tackled the Black
Lives Matter movement and other protests that have followed
Donald Trump‘s presidency.
“Not one black woman out there,” she said of the marches. “Black
woman at home watching ‘Housewives of Atlanta.’”

website. She laughed off the hacking scandal during her routine,
explaining that although it was hard to explain to her
relatives, she’d been trying to send out pics of herself in her
“You really just helped a sister out. Thank you for the
distribution,” she said.
Currently single, the “Ghostbusters” actress also blames the
president on the lack of love in her life.
“I want to be in love,” she said. “I want to do that, but it’s
2017, and we got a pig in office. The world is about to end.”
