Jones reprised her duties at the 2018 Winter Olympics.

In 2018, Jones appeared in two advertisements for Amazon’s Echo Spot.

2017

In 2017 and 2018, Jones was nominated for a Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on SNL.

Jones hosted the BET Awards on June 25, 2017. This marked her hosting debut.

2016

In 2016, she starred in the reboot Ghostbusters as Patty Tolan, alongside Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and Kate McKinnon.

During the 2016 olympic games in Rio, Jones regularly live-tweeted events and posted videos of her reactions. Enthusiasm for Jones’s commentary grew, with articles appearing like The Huffington Post’ s “Watching Leslie Jones Watch The Olympics Is Better Than The Actual Olympics”. Television producer Mike Shoemaker, one of Jones’s Twitter followers, posted on Twitter that his friend Jim Bell, NBC’s executive producer of the network’s Olympics coverage, should add Jones to NBC’s team of commentators covering the Games; Bell responded on Twitter the next day asking Jones to join NBC in Rio. She accepted and flew to Rio, covering swimming, track and field, gymnastics, and beach volleyball for NBC.

Jones and fellow comedian Adam DeVine appeared in a 2016 ad campaign for Allstate Insurance, created by Leo Burnett Worldwide.

After continuing to receive racist comments, Jones left Twitter on July 18, 2016. Jones appeared later in the week on Late Night with Seth Meyers, in which she described the ordeal and her meeting with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. Responding to Yiannopoulos’s claim that he was targeted for being a “gay conservative”, Jones stated, “Free speech and hate speech [are] two different things”.

Nearly a month later, Jones was again the subject of numerous online attacks. Her personal website was hacked, with its contents being replaced by photos of her driver’s license and passport. The site was changed to display alleged nude photographs of Jones, as well as a video tribute to Harambe, the Cincinnati Zoo gorilla killed in May 2016 (a reference to the racially charged gorilla remarks directed at Jones in the earlier attack). Jones’ team took the website down shortly after it was hacked.

Both incidents resulted in large outpourings of celebrity and fan support, via the hashtag “#LoveForLeslieJ”, which trended on both Twitter and Instagram. Paul Feig, Gabourey Sidibe, Ellen DeGeneres, Sara Benincasa, Ava DuVernay, Hillary Clinton, Corey Taylor, Katy Perry, Octavia Spencer, Anna Kendrick, Lena Dunham and Loni Love expressed solidarity with Jones.
