Emily Ratajkowski arrested protesting Brett Kavanaugh nomination

Actress and comedian Amy Schumer detained at Brett Kavanaugh protest on Capitol Hill

Amy Schumer Arrested with Anti-Kavanaugh Protesters in D.C.

Comedian and actress Amy Schumer was among of the number of people arrested during a protest against the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court this week.

Yesterday, 302 people were arrested for illegally protesting inside Senate office buildings in Washington, DC.

A video was shared on Twitter of Schumer being asked by cops, "Do you want to be arrested?" The protest also reportedly came hours after the FBI sent the Senate Judiciary Committee a report following its week-long investigation into accusations of sexual misconduct against the judge, which Kavanaugh has denied. The top judge has been accused of sexual assault by multiple women, but FBI investigators have found no evidence to suggest he's guilty.

Let's say it together: let's fight!

"At approximately 15:30 (22:30 CEST) 293 persons were detained for illegal demonstration in the atrium of the office building of the Senate...", she said.

Sharing a snap of herself holding up a poster which read "respect female existence or expect our resistance", Emily wrote an impassioned caption telling her followers why she had demonstrated.

Earlier on Thursday, Schumer also participated in a celebrity-filled anti-Kavanaugh protest outside of the Supreme Court. How about we show her the same courtesy and direct some of that toxic energy to the people who deserve it.

EmRat kept her phone close by, likely dealing with the fallout from being detained along with fellow actress and I Feel Pretty co-star Amy Schumer during a protest againts Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. "While the arrests were taking place, Schumer even took the time to tweet her support to a fan, saying 'I think we're gonna get arrested. and we're so proud of you".

Though the nomination seems all but a forgone conclusion, Alaskan senator Lisa Murkowski took a stand ahead of the final vote Friday. "So as of now I don't really know and I don't know if anyone else does", said Grassley. They marched to a rallying cry: "We believe Dr Christine Blasey Ford", the university professor who has accused Kavanaugh of drunkenly and violently sexually assaulting her at a party when they were teenagers.
