NBC is encouraging Leslie Jones to continue live-tweeting her hilarious coverage and commentary of the 2022 Winter Olympics.

A day after the comedian and “SNL” alum expressed her frustration and disappointment about her videos being removed, the network claims they have resolved a “third party error” that will no longer interfere or hinder her hilarious coverage on social media.

In a post on her Instagram page, Leslie wrote:

But I’m tired of fighting the folks who don’t want me to do it.

They block my videos and they get folks who think they can do it like me. And I’m tired of fighting them.

I love the athletes and they love me doing it. And i know y’all love it.

But now it’s just gotten too hard. Soooo I guess I’ll leave it to the professionals.

An NBC spokesperson told Variety:

This was the result of a third-party error, and the situation has been resolved.

She is free to do her social media posts as she has done in the past.

She is a super fan of the Olympics, and we are super fans of her.

NBC has exclusive rights to the Olympics, which cost them $7.75 billion through 2032.

Because of that, they have very strict restrictions on sharing recorded videos of the games on social media.

I’m glad they did the right thing and removed all roadblocks so that Leslie can get back to giving the fans what they want!

Now, someone needs to tighten up their thinking cap and give her a job commentating the games.
