Vice presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) delivered remarks over the Supreme Court vacancy on Monday, and mistakenly referred to the “Notorious RBG” as the rapper “Notorious BIG”.
Ginsburg was first crowned with her Notorious RBG moniker — a play on rapper Biggie Smalls’ Notorious B.I.G. nickname — in 2013 when New York University law student Shana Knizhnik created a Tumblr bearing the name to highlight Ginsburg’s dissent in the landmark Supreme Court case Shelby County v. Holder, Bustle reported.
“She was part of our culture,” Senator Kamala Harris said, referring to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
“Yes, we wear those Notorious BIG t-shirts with a lot of pride,” Harris misstated, instead of saying “Notorious RBG”.
Civil Rights attorney Leo Terrell reacted to Senator Harris’ misstatement, calling her a “phony”.
“Whenever @SenKamalaHarris, speaks you can tell she is a phony,” Terrell declared. “She still has not visited the ambushed officers who were shot in California. Vote #Trump”. Video Below

President Trump in August, responded to the news when Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden picked former California Attorney General Kamala Harris as his running mate by tweeting a video ad, calling her “phony Kamala Harris.”

It is also worth noting that Senator Kamala Harris last week, named Tupac Shakur as the “best rapper alive” before quickly correcting herself and declining to name another rapper, during an interview with CNN commentator Angela Rye at the NAACP’s virtual convention.
Shakur, who was killed in 1996, has been the subject of numerous conspiracy theories pushed by fans who think that the rapper either faked his own death or has been in hiding for the past 24 years, as reported by Washington Examiner.
Kamala Harris asked, who’s the best rapper alive?
She answers @2PAC
Then says “Not alive, I know, I keep doing that.”

In a February 2019 interview on the Breakfast Club morning radio show, Harris admitted to smoking marijuana and said that she listened to Tupac and Snoop Dog during her college years at Howard University in Washington, which she was accused of lying as the West Coast rappers weren’t putting out music until years after she graduated.
From Fox News:
Harris graduated from Howard University in 1986 and was finished with law school by 1989. She was admitted to the State Bar of California in 1990.
Snoop Dogg’s debut album “Doggystyle” was released in 1993. Snoop made music prior to his first album, appearing on Dr. Dre’s 1992 album “The Chronic” and the soundtrack of the 1992 film “Deep Cover,” but they were both released years after Harris finished school.
As for Tupac, his first album “2Pacalypse Now” was released in 1991. The rap legend also recorded music as part of the group Digital Underground, but it was also released in the early 1990s after Harris finished school.
