Ruth Bader Ginsburg Kind Of Loves That We Call Her The Notorious R.B.G.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

In her interview with Katie Couric this week, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg let us all know she’s well aware of her internet fame and the Notorious R.B.G. tumblr that was created in her honor. She giggled a bit as she told Katie:

There is a rap song, and there is one using the words from the Hobby Lobby dissent. I haven’t seen anything that isn’t either pleasing or funny on that website…[Site creator Shana Knizhnik] has created a wonderful thing with Notorious R.B.G.. I will admit I had to be told by my law clerks, what’s this Notorious. And they—they explained that to me, but I think that her website is something I enjoy. All of my family do, so cheers for doing that.

She says her children and her grandkids are getting a kick out of the site too. In case we didn’t love her enough already, this 81-year-old feminist hero just made herself an even bigger internet star. Can I be at least a little bit like her when I grow up please? Keep fighting the good fight, R.B.G. [Cosmopolitan, Business Insider, Vanity Fair] [Image via Tumblr]
