8/26/16- Jacque Reid goes Inside Her Story with activist and community leader Blake Simmons, the creator of #BlackMenSupportLeslie. The 23-year-old felt compelled to stand up for actress Leslie Jones after noticing the amount of online bullying she received.

“I saw all the hate that was being shown toward Leslie. I wanted to show my support and solidarity. I had this idea to create a hashtag and to let her know that black men will stand with her,” he said.
