As The Hill reported, SCOTUS Justice Amy Coney Barrett will be using the chambers once occupied by the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg. And, just to twist the knife a little more, Barrett is also not telling people to stop referring to her by her initials.
Please use “Barrett” not ACB. She does not deserve the benefit of RBG’s legacy. She is the antithesis of all RBG stood for.

Thank you Amy. I 100% agree.

THANK YOU!! My thoughts exactly, from the first time I heard some misguided person use the acronym.

Agree, noticed several media outlets doing this. It's jarring & serves as a distinct reminder of what is wrong with her selection & confirmation. I understand saving characters on here but not in articles online. Politico used it thruout their morning email. No need, not cute.

I agree. Ginsburg earned that moniker with her charisma and her badass stand for justice. It’s a nickname from the street, from the people. Barrett will never have that love of the American people because she doesn’t answer to them. Or care about them. Or even truly see them.

Amy Coney Barrett will never have the street cred that the Notorious RBG had.

From the street. So you keep Amy Coney Barrett’s initials out of your mouth!
Or … not. It seems that Megyn Kelly doesn’t actually care that some people are offended by referring to Amy Coney Barrett as ACB:
I will call her whatever I damn well please, and ACB sounds perfect. https://t.co/K6ghxcu6fA

You know what? ACB sounds all right to us, too.
