Comedian Leslie Jones slayed the game as a star of “Saturday Night Live” and in movies such as Ghostbusters and Coming 2 America.

Now, Jones has demonstrated that her skills are transferable to different mediums as she gave hilarious outtakes of the competition during the Tokyo Olympics.

The 53-year-old Memphis, Tennessee, native, born Annette Jones, gave her profanity-laced perspectives on such events as women’s synchronized swimming and track and field that had fans in stitches.

While excitedly discussing the Chinese team’s visually stunning performance in the water, Jones exclaimed, “You can’t do this s— with a floaty.”

This take in particular has already been liked nearly 300K times and retweeted almost 70K times.

Jones also went on an expletive-laden tirade when runner Sifan Hassan appeared to be so exhausted after her race that she collapsed, prompting Jones to scream, “Somebody get this girl some water!”

The comedian’s voice ratcheted up a few more notches as the beleaguered runner continued to squirm on the track with no water in sight.

“She even telling the cameraman, ‘muthaf—er, put the camera down and get me some water! I’m on fire! Stop filming me,’ ” Jones carried on hilariously. 

“Where are the people with the water? She just ran 17,000 miles!”

Television fans were equally aghast at the scene and said so on Twitter. Meanwhile, many others gave Jones props for her insightful and expletive-ridden sports commentary, with one fan begging Netflix to give Jones her own unfiltered sports show.
