NYPD investigating anti-Semitic graffiti on Ruth Bader Ginsburg poster as hate crime

03/13/19 06:52 PM EDT



The New York Police Department is investigating anti-Semitic graffiti scrawled on a poster featuring Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as a hate a crime.

The phrase "Die Jew B----" and a Nazi swastika were drawn over Ginsburg's face on advertisement promoting a new book about her at a city subway station on Tuesday, according to a photo published by The New York Post.

"Hate Crime Task Force is currently on scene investigating ANTI-SEMITIC vandalism at the Nassau Ave station on the G line," the NYPD's Hate Crimes Task Force said in a tweet from its verified account Wednesday afternoon. "Thank you to all community members for alerting the NYPD."

NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea added in a separate tweet that the NYPD's transit unit would also be conducting a full investigation into graffiti drawn over the 85-year-old justice, who is Jewish.

Thank you @BPEricAdams and @Chevi_F for bringing this abhorrent incident to our attention. Detectives from @NYPDHateCrimes are working with @NYPDTransit and will be conducting a full investigation. As always, NYC has no place for hate. @NYPDnews @NYPDDCPI
