A Ruth Bader Ginsburg Poster Was Vandalized in NYC with an Anti-Semitic Slur

A poster advertising a book about Ruth Bader Ginsburg was vandalized in Brooklyn with an anti-Semitic slur and a swastika.

The vandalized poster at a subway stop in the Greenpoint neighborhood made the rounds Wednesday on social media. The phrase and symbol were written in what appeared to be black marker over the Jewish jurist’s face.

On Twitter, the New York City Transit Authority’s Subway account said the “offensive imagery” had been reported on Tuesday and that it had since removed it.

“Again, we regret that our customers were exposed to this hate speech,” the agency said.

While it’s a terrible act on any occasion, this week also marked The Notorious RBG’s 86th birthday. Luckily, she has more strength and dignity in one little finger than the vandals do in their entire bodies. Her legacy speaks for itself.
