A Ruth Bader Ginsburg poster was vandalized in Greenpoint on Tuesday inside the Nassau Avenue G subway station with the words “Die Jew Bitch” along with a drawing of a swastika.
Seen at the Nassau Ave stop on the G train. What is going to be done about this? @NYCTSubway @NYPDONeill @NYPDnews @MTA @NYCMayor @NYCMayorsOffice @JumaaneWilliams @nyc311 @BPEricAdams @NYGovCuomo pic.twitter.com/wecmY5Npnp

The hate graffiti quickly drew condemnation from Mayor de Blasio who is asking for public assistance in identifying the person responsible:
Ruth Bader Ginsburg represents the very best of our city.
We’ll find whoever is responsible for this anti-Semitic trash and ensure they face consequences for trying to spread hate in New York City. If you have any information on this despicable act, please contact the NYPD. https://t.co/qff5nV7OE1

The NYPD tweeted that the Hate Crimes Task Force was on the case:
There is no room for hate in NYC

Borough President Eric Adams called for any footage of the incident to be released to the police:
This is deeply painful for our #Greenpoint community. Hate graffiti targeting #RBG further incites anti-Semitic attacks. I urge the @MTA and @NYPDNews to search any footage available in/around the Nassau St. station to catch the perp of this horrific act. https://t.co/3CpKmhBHLW
