Leslie Jones has developed a following for live-tweeting the last few summer and winter Olympics Games, but the comedian says she may stop because of pushback.

The former Saturday Night Live comic took to Instagram early Monday morning (East Coast time) to say she’s been told to stop posting videos of Olympics competition and leave the live narration to professional sportscasters.

“I feel this should be my last Olympics I live tweet. I know, I know, another celebrity b–ching, but I’m tired of fighting the folks who don’t want me to do it,” she wrote in a statement shared across her social media channels. “They block my videos and they get folks who think they can do it like me. And I’m tired of fighting them.”

Jones captioned the post, “Leslie Jones does not stay anywhere I’m not welcomed. #uptoyallnow.”

She didn’t give specifics as to who told her to stop posting the videos, although NBC, also home to SNL, has exclusive broadcast rights to Olympics footage airing in the U.S. (and Jones is using the video without permission).

“I love the athletes and they love me doing it. And I know y’all love it,” Jones added. “But now it’s gotten too hard. And no one is fighting for or with me. Soooo I guess I’ll leave it to the professionals. But thank you for all the love. #uptoyallnow.”

Before uploading the statement, she posted a series of videos of the figure skating competition that she recorded off her TV screen and narrated.

Jones’ fans chimed in on Instagram and Twitter urging NBC to leave the comedian alone.

NBC Sports did not immediately respond to Urban Hollywood 411‘s request for comment.
