This weekend, “Saturday Night Live” poked fun at pop culture juggernaut Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the oldest serving member of the U.S. Supreme Court and star of her own comic book.
Actress Kate McKinnon played the 81-year-old Supreme Court Justice to a doily and over-sized glasses T. But marring McKinnon’s guest spot on the “Weekend Update” desk to “Gins-burn” a few friends, was the chyron at the bottom of the screen.
It read “Ruth Bader Ginsberg,” not the correct “Ginsburg.” Is Justice Ginsberg like the evil twin from backward world?
We could forgive a rookie mistake for a Not Super Famous Justice Who Everyone Loves Even If They Don’t Know Anything About the Supreme Court (actually we couldn’t, didn’t SNL just celebrate 40 years on air?). But come on, this is The Notorious RBG we’re talking about here. The woman whose prime time catnaps make national news.
