Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died of “complications from metastatic pancreas cancer,” the Supreme Court announced on Friday night (September 18, 2020).

The longtime justice, liberal stalwart, and feminist icon was 87 years old. She reportedly died surrounded by her family at her home in Washington, D.C., and will be interred at Arlington National Cemetery.

Launch the gallery above to look back at photo from her Supreme Court Justice career.

She was remembered by many political figures (which you can read here), and was remembered by Hollywood. Read some of those tributes below.

Kerry Washington

Her rest is earned. It is our turn to fight.

Viola Davis

No 2020!!! No! No! Not now! Not this WOMAN!!! Please work your supreme magic, brilliant mind, and courage from Heaven!! Help us down here! Thank you for your service Queen!! Rest in glorious peace 💔💔💔

Janet Mock

Rest in power to a feminist icon and American hero! Thank you Ruth Bader Ginsburg for your service, for working well BEYOND retirement until the very end because our country needed you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Bette Midler

My friends, the great “Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second woman to serve on the US Supreme Court and its most determined advocate for gender equality, has died at the age of 87. She had endured multiple bouts of cancer before succumbing to the disease.” There are no words.

Barbra Streisand

Just heard the worst news… so sad! Ruth Bader Ginsburg you will live in history forever. May you rest in peace. 😢🙏😢

Sarah Silverman

RIP RBG. Gutted. Sad.
Grateful for all she did. And very very scared.

Dan Rather

Please let’s save the politics for another day. The rank hypocrisy, outrage, and vote counting. Justice Ginsburg was a towering figure, a fighter. Time and time again she beat the odds. She wouldn’t want anyone to give up or be deterred from fighting for the dreams she embodied.

Mandy Patinkin

Our friend Pamela just told us that “According to Jewish tradition, a person who dies on Rosh Hashanah, which began tonight, is a tzaddik, a person of great righteousness.” We found that very comforting. So strange to be eating these apples and honey with this sadness.

Jennifer Lopez

I am heartbroken to hear of the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She was a true champion of gender equality and was a strong woman for me and all the little girls of the world to look up to.

Patton Oswalt

Everyone freak out tonight. Everyone get to work tomorrow. Okay?


Robert Downey Jr.

“Fight for the things you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.” RIP, RBG

Billie Jean King

“So that’s the dissenter’s hope: that they are writing not for today but for tomorrow.”
My Shero, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, has died.
To pay tribute, those who believe in equality & freedom must fight for the ideals she championed.
For her.
For us.
For generations to follow.

Octavia Spencer

My deepest condolences to Justice Ginsberg’s loved ones. The nation mourns this loss quite deeply. #YouWereTheFairestOfThemAll

Mindy Kaling

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the kind of scholar and patriot you get excited about explaining to your kids. The kind of person who you say “who knows, one day you could be HER”. I hope you rest well, RBG, you must have been tired from changing the world.

Yvette Nicole Brown

I am crying. This one hurts so bad. She was good woman. A principled woman. She fought for the citizens of this country and for equality and equity for us all.
She was our shield.
She believed in us.
Please #Vote in honor of her.
Please. Please.


Megan Rapinoe

This is devastating, an incalculable loss. We owe so much to RBG. Rest in Power Ruth Bader Ginsburg. #RIPRBG

Stevie Nicks

“RBG – She was my hero. She fought for me and all women. I feel today very much like I felt on the night my own mother died. I feel like someone punched me in the stomach. My tears have not stopped since a friend tip toed into my room and said ‘Stevie, Ruth died’. (No need for a last name…)

It is my great regret that I did not make the effort to go and try to meet her. As with all legends, you think they will live forever, so you will get there in time.

I did not get to meet her. I did not get to stand in her grace. What a loss… She was a political rockstar.

As a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, the first female to be inducted twice, compared to 22 men having been inducted twice, I, Stevie Nicks, induct Ruth Bader Ginsburg into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame of Life.

She was our girl, our champion, our finest example. She was Ruth.”

Katy Perry


Oprah Winfrey

We just bowed in prayer at our house for her Full and filled life and legacy, resting in peace and power.

Mariah Carey

Thank you for a lifetime of service. Thank you for changing history. We will never let it be undone. RIP RBG.

Mandy Moore

Thank you, RBG for devoting your life, love and legacy to the rule of law. What a trailblazer in every way. What an immeasurable loss in every way. We will honor you by voting to protect all that you stood for. #rbg #heartbroken

Brie Larson

“Women belong in all places where decisions are being made.”
