Comedian Leslie Jones is making the most of her return to Twitter. The Ghostbusters star has decided to share her enthusiasm for the 2016 Rio Olympics with her followers, and the result has been hilarious. On the first day of competition, Jones dressed up in an American flag-inspired ensemble to cheer on the squad.
Yep I love the Olympics it's the only time all countries come together to compete! I love it!! pic.twitter.com/YQue72tQ5c— Leslie Jones (@Lesdoggg) August 6, 2016
She's offered her colorful commentary on everything from gymnastics to water polo and everything in between.

Jones watches events on her TV and laptop to stay updated

One thing Jones wasn't a fan of, however, was the commentating.
I'm sorry in advance but this is the OLYMPICS!!! pic.twitter.com/jwwADf04So— Leslie Jones (@Lesdoggg) August 7, 2016
And now she'll have a chance to add her own spice.
Jim Bell, the executive producer of NBC's Olympic coverage, reached out to Jones to invite her to Rio, and, of course, she was down.
