Ex-SNL star Leslie Jones says 'let's get the rest of them motherf**kers' about cops after Chauvin found guilty of murder
EX-SNL star Leslie Jones celebrated the conviction of former cop Derek Chauvin in a video message telling her followers: "Now let's get the rest of them motherf**kers."
The 53-year-old comedian shared the clip in a tweet captioned "Yasssssss!! #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd" after the verdict was announced that Chauvin had been found guilty on all counts.
"Guilty. Guilty. Guilty," Jones began. "Now let's get the rest of them motherf**kers."
Her stern warning came the day after 16-year-old Ma'Khia Bryant was shot and killed by a cop in Ohio – just minutes before the Chauvin ruling was announced.
The Coming 2 America actress seemed to reference bringing charges to other officers involved in police shootings of black people in the 12-second video.
In the wake of Floyd's death last year, Jones encouraged those taking to the streets in protest to "vote" – suggesting people needed to "burn down this f***ing Constitution" instead of burning down buildings.
"I love that you guys are protesting and see how quick you did it. But I’m gonna tell you, to get the f*ck what you really want, we’re going to have to change the f***ing system," she said.
"And to change the system, we have to f***ing vote."
"You want to burn down buildings? Burn down this f***ing Constitution," she continued. "That’s how we really show them."
Her frank retorts towards law enforcement echo those of NBA star Lebron James, who briefly tweeted a picture of the cop accused of killing Ma'Khia Bryant with the message: "You're next".
He also hashtagged "accountability" in the post shared with his 49.6million followers, that was swiftly deleted.
In 2018, Jones ruffled the feathers of the Baltimore City Fraternal Order of Police after she ridiculed officers in a Saturday Night Live skit.
The 'Traffic Stop' sketch showed the Supermarket Sweep host and other cast members donning police uniforms and pretending to flirt and sexually harass a male driver.
But Baltimore police didn't see the funny side – with Lt. Gene S. Ryan slamming her "inappropriate manner", saying the sketch "fell short of being humorous".
But the Tennessee native's most recent comments were welcomed by social media users, who told her she was "absolutely correct".
One said: "Leslie I love you! And you are absolutely correct. Step 1 done. Now Let’s get all the evil pr***s."
Another added, "I can watch this on loop for the next few days."
"Love your spirit, Leslie! Even with this crazy s**t going on," a third replied.
