Amy Schumer and Emily Ratajkowski have been arrested

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

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

As CNN reported, the protests in question took place on Thursday at a U.S. Senate building in Washington, D.C., resulting in the arrest of 302 people.

Hundreds of people turned up at the US Senate building in the nation's capital to challenge Kavanaugh's nomination after three women accused him of various forms of sexual misconduct.

In video footage that has been circulating on Twitter, Schumer, 37, can be seen interacting with the police.

Starting at the appeals court where Kavanaugh now works, protestors marched on Capitol Hill and the Supreme Court, chanting "Kavanaugh has got to go!"

Comedian Amy Schumer and model and actress Emily Ratajkowski were arrested on Thursday while protesting against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Schumer has been very vocal about her stand against Kavanaugh's nomination as the next Supreme Court Justice.

Ratajkowski shared a photo of herself carrying a hand-written sign reading, "Respect female existence or expect 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". That's what we're going to do, we're going to keep showing up.

Another social media source shows Schumer addressing the crowd while wearing a green button-down shirt that read, "This Today Then #ERA".

As well as the national park, she visited an orphanage and watched a children's performance at the city's national theatre. Kenya was the third stop on Mrs Trump's African tour, which began on Tuesday in Ghana and continued in Malawi on Thursday.

Another video, filmed by bystanders, shows a cop asking Schumer and other protestors if they want to get arrested, to which Schumer responds "yes".

"I know that my tone was sharp, and I said a few things I should not have said".

Before the protest, Republicans had just declared that Kavanaugh, who could still potentially be nominated to the United States supreme court, had been exonerated by an Federal Bureau of Investigation report.

Donald Trump, on the other hand, has expressed support for Kavanaugh-who denied all allegations-recently angering some of his fellow Republicans by speaking against Ms Ford's testimony.
