A poster in Brooklyn featuring a photo of 85-year-old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg – who is Jewish – was vandalized Tuesday with the words, “Die, Jew b–ch!” along with a swastika scrawled beneath in black marker.
The poster advertised the book, “The Unstoppable Ruth Bader Ginsburg: American Icon.”
The anti-Semitic hate was found at the Greenpoint neighborhood subway stop. A snapshot of the vandalized poster made the rounds Wednesday on social media.
Hate Crime Task Force is currently on scene investigating ANTI-SEMITIC vandalism at the Nassau Ave station on the G line. Thank you to all community members for alerting the NYPD.

But within hours it was removed by the New York City Transit Authority, which announced on Twitter “We regret that our customers were exposed to this hate speech.”
The New York City Police Department’s Hate Crime Task Force is investigating the incident.
