Amy Schumer Detained At 'Cancel Kavanaugh' Protest

Amy Schumer breaks silence after arrest to defend Emily Ratajkowski

In a video posted on Twitter Thursday, an officer asked Schumer if she wanted to be arrested, implying that she would be detained if she did not leave the premises. Another fan got a special message from Amy on a video, saying, "I think [I'm] gonna get arrested".

The MSNBC tweet included the message, "Actress Amy Schumer is detained with other anti-Kavanaugh protesters at the Hart Senate Office Bldg. atrium on Capitol Hill".

Police had shut down the Capitol Building in advance of the protest, prompting participants to gather in the Hart building instead, according to Women's March which reportedly organised the protest.

Actress-model Emily Ratajkowski revealed on Twitter on Thursday that she'd been detained while protesting the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh in Washington, D.C.

"We see you Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and everyone else who told the truth no matter what happens we thank you we love you we are you", Amy posted on Instagram on Wednesday (October 3).

She gave evidence in front of the committee that Mr Kavanaugh, then aged 17, sexually assaulted her when she was aged 15 in Maryland in 1982.

Schumer made a speech outside the building before the group stormed in.

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

The FBI investigation, which was not even allowed to include interviews with the accused or the accuser - not to mention dozens of other witnesses who came forward in the press to say they could refute Kavanaugh's testimony about his drinking habits - ended a day early, and the vote to confirm "Bart" was scheduled before anyone even got a look at the report.

No word yet on if the 32-year-old actress was also arrested at the protest. "Let's keep showing up!"

"What neighbourhood was it in?" I don't know. But I had one beer.
