Amy Schumer Detained At 'Cancel Kavanaugh' Protest

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

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

Police rounded the protesters up in the Hart Senate office building after they sat down and refused to budge, and it was here that 37 year old Schumer was arrested along with around 300 protestors.

She and actress Emily Ratajkowski joined protestors at Capitol Hill yesterday against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. CNN reports that Schumer was seen "being arrested". So the thousands of demonstrators streamed into the Hart building, chanting and singing against Kavanaugh, whom multiple women have accused of sexual misconduct.

"You want to be arrested?" an officer warns her.

Inside the Capitol, senators digested the findings in the Federal Bureau of Investigation report on the sexual allegations against Kavanaugh. "We're going to keep showing up", she says in the video.

She shared a photograph of herself in front of the US Capitol brandishing a sign reading "Respect female existence or expect our resistance". So the actress tweeted out a long statement defending her. Schumer wrote, sarcastically, "In the "what to wear when being detained for 4 hours on an 87 degree day after a 2 hour march" handbook".

Ratajkowski has confirmed she was detained amid the chaos and there have been images posted on TV and online of Schumer's arrest.

Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual abuse by three women, including Christine Blasey Ford, who testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last the week, saying she was 100 per cent sure that the Supreme Court nominee tried to rape her in 1982.

It comes as Mr Kavanaugh is looking increasingly likely to be confirmed to the top U.S. court, despite the sexual assault allegations made against him by Dr Christine Blasey Ford and two other women.

Earlier on Thursday, Schumer also participated in a celebrity-filled anti-Kavanaugh protest outside of the Supreme Court.

Though the nomination seems all but a forgone conclusion, Alaskan senator Lisa Murkowski took a stand ahead of the final vote Friday.
