Leslie Jones stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers to talk busting ghosts and busting Twitter trolls. After facing an avalanche of straight-up hate speech, being called a litany of racist horrible things, Jones took a leave of absence from the site and encouraged the Twitter execs to step up their anti-bullying game.

Jones had some strong words for the trolls, and for the people who trolled her for busting trolls.

"Hate speech and freedom of speech are two different things," she says, subtweeting members of the #FreeMilo movement who think that racism on Twitter is protected under the First Amendment.

Alas, it is not, and Jones described her journey to facing up to these sad souls, but in a still-funny way because she's Leslie Jones.

Welcome back, Leslie. The power of Patti compels us all.
