Hate crimes unit investigates Ginsburg poster graffiti

NEW YORK (AP) — New York Police Department’s hate crimes unit is investigating after a poster of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was defaced with an anti-Semitic image and language.

WNBC says a straphanger tweeted a photo of the defaced poster on a Brooklyn subway platform to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and police.

On the poster, the word “DIE” was written over the justice’s forehead and “JEW” was over her glasses. There was a swastika over her mouth.

The NYPD said on Twitter: “There is no room for hate in NYC.”

Subway officials say the graffiti had been removed.

The poster advertises a book about Ginsburg.
