Over the past few months, some of the pure joy that came with the news that Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Kristen Wiig would be starring in Paul Feig's "Ghostbusters" sequel has been tainted by certain dark corners of the Internet, which claim that an all-female version of the iconic comedy franchise would "ruin their childhood."
Feig has already responded to the "vile, misogynistic" comments he's received on Twitter, but now Jones herself is here with three little worlds for the Internet's cruelest sadboys: "get over it."
"It's 'Ghostbusters,'" Jones told MTV News at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of "Live From New York" on Wednesday (April 15). "Come on, man. It's not that hard to see women do a role that a man was supposed to do. I mean, get over it. It's just a movie, man."
If we were on our cell phones right now, we'd be inserting that "preach" emoji. And as for the rumored "all-male," Channing Tatum-led "Ghostbusters" that was announced in March, Jones has something to say about that, too -- mostly, that she doesn't even think it's real.
"I don't think they're really going to do that," she said with a laugh. "I think that's something just to piss us off."
And as for Jones' "SNL" costars who haven't yet been cast in the sequel (Cecily Strong will reportedly appear in a yet-to-be-revealed role), they still have high hopes for themselves in the cameo department.
"We're going to jointly play Slimer, together," Aidy Bryant joked, with Sasheer Zamata adding that the role would require "one huge costume -- they're not even doing CGI, they're going to have old school puppets."
Bobby Moynihan and Beck Bennett -- both men who don't seem to oppose a female "Ghostbusters," by the way -- had a similar idea.
"We're playing one character called the professor," Moynihan said. "He'll be on my shoulders and we'll have one big, long lab coat."
"We're ghosts," Bennett chimed in. "We're professors who died goofing around, and then we come back to scare the Ghostbusters."
Sorry, Bennett, but based off what we saw from Jones, you're going to have a hard time with that whole "scare" part.
"Ghostbusters" is slated for a July 22, 2016 release.
