Every time Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg writes an opinion on a Supreme Court case, people go nuts. She’s sort of become a pop culture icon and feminist hero. She’s a phenomenon. As such, she’s been given a fitting nickname: The Notorious RBG. Get it? Like Biggie Smalls? You get it, right?
Anyway, it was that 35-page dissent in the Burwell v. Hobby Lobby case that cemented her legacy. Now, #NotoriousRBG t-shirts are abundant and there is even a book with that title. Still, we can’t forget to give credit where credit is due. This time, that means giving the credit to Twitter, where the hashtag originated and continues to pop up every time she demonstrates her writing ability. Yesterday, she wrote a concurrence of the ruling against harsh anti-abortion laws in Texas, so the hashtag has resurfaced.
Here are a few of the tweets about her that have been making waves for the past day:
