The Supreme Court announced on Thursday morning that 85-year-old Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is in the hospital after suffering a fall in the office on Wednesday night.

The statement said that the Supreme Court Justice has fractured three ribs, and more updates are to follow her admittance to George Washington University.

Ginsburg’s health has been called into question in recent years due to her old age. According to CNN, “In November 2014, she underwent a heart procedure to have a stent placed in her right coronary artery, and in 2009, she was treated for early stages of pancreatic cancer.”

Ginsburg, the second of four female justices to be sworn into court, was appointed by President Bill Clinton in 1993, serving on the bench for more than 25 years.

Since the news broke, celebrities and public figures have been spreading their love and thoughts to Ginsburg via Twitter:
