After news that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died Friday of complications with metastatic pancreatic cancer, social media users shared #NotoriousRBG tributes.

The moniker is a play on Biggie Smalls, the rapper known as Notorious B.I.G. In 2013, Shana Knizhnik, a then NYU school of law school student, saw a friend use the nickname and decided to use to for her Tumblr blog on Ginsburg.
