It turns out that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg owns a bunch of “Notorious RBG” T-shirts to pair with her badass “dissenting collar.”

During an event Sunday night at the 92nd St Y in New York City, Ginsburg was asked how she found out about the T-shirts, which spun out of an Internet meme that was inspired by her fiery dissents and that parodies rapper Notorious B.I.G.

“I think a law clerk told me about this Tumblr,” Ginsburg, who always seems to get a kick out of her Internet celebrity, explained. “And also explained to me what ‘Notorious R.B.G.’ was a parody on. And now, well my grandchildren love it and I try to keep abreast of the latest that’s on the Tumblr.”

“I have quite a large supply,” she added.
