Celebrities and political figures took to social media to express their condolences and share reactions after the news of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death broke online.

Ginsburg, who was 87, is most known for her fearless defense of gender equality and women’s rights. She recently announced her cancer had returned, although she said she would remain on the Supreme Court.

She served as a Supreme Court Justice for 27 years, as one of only four women to ever serve in the position. Politicians on all sides of the political spectrum posted and dozens of celebrities mourned the United States’ loss.

Hillary Clinton wrote on Twitter:

“Justice Ginsburg paved the way for so many women, including me. There will never be another like her. Thank you RBG.”

Jennifer Lopez, who formed a friendship with Ginsburg in the last few years, shared some photos with RBG as a tribute.

“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,” Lopez wrote. “I will always remember what she said to us the day we met her: ‘Be the best you.’ It was simple yet profound. Thank you RBG for fighting all these years. We will honour you by continuing to fight for equality, empathy and justice for all.”

Actress Mindy Kaling also shared a sweet tribute to Ginsburg:

“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.”

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. Throughout my life, I’ve been fortunate to meet so many amazing people … but there’s those select few where there’s an instinct inside you that tells you to pay close attention. And I did. When I met her I was hanging on to her every word… I will always remember what she said to us the day we met her: “Be the best you.” It was simple yet profound. Thank you RBG for fighting all these years. We will honor you by continuing to fight for equality, empathy and justice for all. 💔 #RIPRBG ✨❤️✨ 📷: Fred Schilling
