Dramatic scenes as Amy Schumer arrested

Dramatic scenes as Amy Schumer arrested

Amy Schumer and Emily Ratajkowski were arrested for protesting against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh outside Washington on Thursday.

By Thursday afternoon, Capitol police had begun arresting hundreds of protesters inside the Hart Senate Office Building.

Schumer, whose father is a cousin to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), even took the time to send a message to the daughter of one of the women she was protesting with. Schumer spoke during the protest.

Schumer also posted photos of the protest on Instagram.

Among the arrested: comedian and actress Amy Schumer, a distant cousin of Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer of NY.

Holding a sign declaring: "Respect female existence or expect our resistance", the 27-year-old was one of the dozens of protesters to storm the atrium of a Senate office building on Friday before she was arrested alongside fellow actress Amy Schumer.

The actress was at a #CancelKavanagh protest which is being held in a bid to stop the nomination process of Judge Brett Kavanaugh who was accused of sexually assaulting a woman with who he went to college with.

Fifteen minutes later, MSNBC reported that Schumer is being "detained with other anti-Kavanaugh protesters", though it's unclear what that means legally. " It is clear that these vocal supporters not only disrespect female existence but also believe that a woman is something to be objectified and ogled, and can not be respected if she does not "dress appropriately". "We will win. A vote for Kavanaugh is a vote saying women don't matter". The moderate senators are two of just a handful of politicians who have not yet announced whether they will be voting for or against his confirmation. The investigation didn't include any interviews with Kavanaugh or Ford, or key witnesses that claim they can corroborate sexual misconduct allegations and testify to Kavanaugh lying under oath.
