Across America and the world, people are still mourning the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Tributes have flooded in from across the world and huge crowds gathered outside the United States Supreme Court in Washington DC to mourn the feminist icon. People sang, lit candles and brought flowers to celebrate Ginsburg’s life and work.
It’s been reported that far-right conspiracy Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman crashed the vigil.
In a video supposedly captured outside the Supreme Court, Wohl is heard telling those around him that “Roe v. Wade is dead!”. He also said “Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a horrible justice!”

Roe v Wade is the 1973 court case that established women’s constitutional right to abortion in all US states. If Ginsburg is replaced by a conservative justice, it is thought that the legislation may be challenged.
After causing a scene, Wohl – a pro-Trump activist – made a swift exit after being drowned out by chanting.
Wohl is a renowned Trump fan known for pushing bizarre conspiracy theories. He was previously banned from Twitter after publicly sharing plans to interfere with the 2020 Democratic presidential primary. He’s also been banned from Facebook and Instagram for spreading conspiracy theories.
