Amy Schumer Detained at Kavanaugh Protest in D.C.

Amy Schumer Apparently Detained At Kavanaugh Protest Capitol Police Begin Arresting 300 Protesters Staging Senate Sit-In -- Including Comedian Amy Schumer
Ivan Hill | 05 October, 2018, 02:42

Schumer and Ratajkowski were photographed and caught on video as they chanted in protest and were ultimately escorted out of the Hart Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C. In one clip, an officer is seen asking protesters if they want to be arrested, to which Schumer replies, "Yes".

Schumer can be seen in a video in which a Capitol Police officer tells protesters they will be arrested unless they leave the building.

Amy Schumer was one of the hundreds of protesters detained in Washington, D.C., Thursday as they rallied to urge senators to vote no on Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court.

Dunham, the creator of "Girls", seemed pleased with the turnout: "So many women I love are in DC today", she tweeted.

Actress Emily Ratajkowski also said on Instagram that she was arrested at the protest.

'Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power'.

'Lilo & Stitch' Is The Next Disney Movie Getting A Live-Action Remake
Like a lot of these things (and let's face it, nearly every major movie out there), the film will be a live-action/CG hybrid. It's not going to take much longer for Disney to remake their entire animated catalogue into live-action films.


It appears what the Federal Bureau of Investigation came back with hasn't swayed the vote of key Senators - which means Kavanaugh is likely to be confirmed to the Supreme Court.

"Today I was arrested protesting the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, a man who has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault", Ratajkowski captioned her post.

Earlier this week Donald Trump was criticised for imitating Dr Ford, who could not provide precise information about every aspect of the day of the assault, at a rally in Mississippi. She told the crowd: "We're going to keep showing up and no matter how this goes they can not keep us down".

Julie Swetnick claims Kavanaugh and his Georgetown Prep pal Mark Judge were part of a group of guys who drugged and gang raped women.

Schumer's representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and the Capitol Police could not be reached.
