NYPD's Hate Crime Unit Probes Anti-Semitic Graffiti on Ginsburg Poster

NYPD's Hate Crime Unit Probes Anti-Semitic Graffiti on Ginsburg Poster

By    |   Wednesday, 13 March 2019 09:04 PM EDT

Police in New York City are investigating the defacing of a poster featuring Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as a hate crime.

According to the New York Post, the graffiti was discovered in a Brooklyn subway station. The words "Die; Jew B**ch!" were scrolled on Ginsburg's face in black marker. Covering her mouth was a black swastika.

Dermot F. Shea, the NYPD's chief of detectives, posted a tweet that said detectives are approaching the incident as a hate crime.

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

The MTA scrubbed the poster clean on Tuesday.

The poster is an advertisement for a new book written about Ginsburg, who has served on the Supreme Court since 1993.
