A subway poster featuring U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was covered in anti-Semitic hate speech and a swatstika Tuesday, launching a response from the NYPD’s Hate Crimes division.
The image of the defiled ad promoting Antonia Felix’s book “The Unstoppable Ruth Bader Ginsburg” was widely circulated on social media Wednesday, in a tweet that tagged accounts for NYC Transit, Mayor de Blasio and other public officials.
“Die, Jew ****!,” the hate-filled scrawl said, followed by a Nazi swastika symbol.
The defiled subway poster — spotted at the Nassau Ave. G line station — was removed after its discovery Tuesday, according to MTA officials. An NYPD spokesman confirmed that the Hate Crimes division is investigating the incident.
