LOS ANGELES (AP) — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Homeland Security investigators are looking into the hack of actress-comedian Leslie Jones' website.

ICE said Thursday that its New York office is investigating the hack that exposed personal information and intimate photos of the "Saturday Night Live" star, along with hateful and racist images.

ICE Public Affairs Officer Rachael Yong Yow said the agency does not release information related to active investigations. Jones' website was taken offline after the hack was exposed Wednesday.

The "Ghostbusters" actress was also targeted on Twitter last month with a barrage of racial slurs and obscene photos. She called on the social networking service to do more to curb harassment, and Twitter banned several users as a result.
