Amy Schumer & Emily Ratajkowski Arrested: Must-See Photos

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

The 37-year-old comedian was taken into police custody alongside model Emily Ratajkowski in Washington D.C. on Thursday during a campaign against Kavanaugh's election to the United States Supreme Court.

"When I texted my daughter, Zola, a picture of Amy Schumer she got very excited and said she was reading Amy's book today".

Anita Hill, a well known American attorney stood against Clarence Thomas, another Supreme Court nominee back in 1991 and accused him of sexual harassment. The two famous ladies weren't the only ones to be arrested, they were among 300 other protestors who also got detained.

"Today I was arrested for protesting the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, a man who has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault", the tweet reads.

"Bravery is contagious", "Stop Kavanaugh,", "Kavanaugh has to go", and "We don't want rapists in court", were the most recurring slogans during the march.

Has Theresa May promised to end austerity?
United Kingdom correspondent Rod Liddle told Mike Hosking Theresa May has most of her Cabinet and Conservative Party behind her. In a message to voters tired of belt-tightening, the PM said: "Because you made sacrifices, there are better days ahead".

Earlier in the day, Schumer attended the #CANCELKAVANAUGH protest outside the E. Barrett Prettyman Federal Courthouse, with the likes of Lena Durham and Whoopi Goldberg. Schumer told a CNN producer she was arrested.

In an Instagram post, Amy hits out at critics who complained about the fact neither she nor Emily were wearing bras at the time they were arrested.

Following Kavanaugh's nomination and his initial hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Christine Blasey Ford came forward with an allegation that Kavanaugh sexually and physically assaulted her while they were both at a party during high school more than three decades ago. Kavanaugh, for his part, flatly denies the allegation, and he has the backing of Trump and dozens of GOP senators.

Amy told the crowd: "That's what we're going to do: We're going to keep showing up and no matter how this goes, they can not keep us down". The US Senate is poised to make its final decision Friday as to whether or not they will advance Kavanaugh's nomination.

"Let's stay together, let's fight, let's keep showing up", she said.
