Celebrities React to the Death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

As the world mourns Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg celebrities react.

The world has been collectively mourning since the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The 87 year old Supreme Court Justice died last Friday due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer. Ginsburg spent her career not only fighting for the rights of her fellow women, but also LGBTQ+ equality. She was instrumental in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges, which struck down state bans on same-sex marriage and extended full marriage equality throughout the country. She also was the spearhead for many gender equality laws. Her loss has left an impact on the heart of America.

Sharing in our grief, celebrities took to social media to express their gratitude. Reese Witherspoon and Dolly Parton each posted powerful photos of Ginsburg.

On Twitter, Barbara Streisand, Danny Devito, and Viola Davis expressed their admiration for the Supreme Court justice.

One of the most harrowing statements came from Felicity Jones, who played Ginsburg in the 2018 biographical drama ‘On the Basis of Sex.’ In Maire Claire, Jones said:

“Ruth Bader Ginsburg gave us hope, a public figure who stood for integrity and justice — a responsibility she did not wear lightly. She will be missed not only as a beacon of light in these difficult times but for her razor-sharp wit and extraordinary humanity. She taught us all so much. I will miss her deeply.”

As we reel from grief we cannot forget what Ruth fought for her whole life. Kerry Washington said it best in her tweet:
