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

Hundreds gathered Thursday at the Hart Senate Office Building to protest against the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

In another video posted to Twitter by @Theboldtype_z, Schumer made light of her pending arrest by sending a video to a fellow protester's daughter. She responds by answering, "Yes".

Take a look at the scene on Capitol Hill. Amy, who told her social media followers that she would be protesting, was photographed as one of the several protesters who were held at the Hart Senate Office Building by police. "Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power".

Before her arrest, Schumer addressed the crowd, telling them "a vote for Kavanaugh is a vote saying women don't matter".

Amy Schumer and Emily Ratajkowski, stars of the 2018 rom-com I Feel Pretty and apparent IRL besties, were reportedly arrested on Thursday afternoon in Washington D.C. while protesting Judge Brett Kavanaugh's SCOTUS confirmation.

Ratajkowski concluded: 'I demand a government that acknowledges, respects and supports women as much as it does men'.

Ratajkowski has confirmed she was detained amid the chaos and there have been images posted on TV and online of Schumer's arrest. "I'm here with your mom, she loves you very much".

The nominee has been accused of sexual assault by professor Christine Blasey Ford.

The impassioned fight over Kavanaugh's nomination has led to heightened security at the Capitol, with some senators using police escorts to shield them from protesters.

The women were in the USA capital on Thursday protesting the possible appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

"That's what we're going to do".
