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

Emily Ratajkowski is getting trolled for her wardrobe choice during Thursday's protest - and subsequent arrest - against the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault by three women.

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.

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

Kavanaugh is expected to win confirmation to the Supreme Court today.

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

Shaw became India's second-youngest century maker after Sachin Tendulkar as he reached three figures early in the second session. Shaw, who is 18 years and 329 days old, reached his hundred off just 99 deliveries in the second session on day one.

In one video uploaded to Twitter by @BMXMiKEWREX, a police officer approaches Schumer and asks "Do you want to be arrested?" to which Schumer responds "yes".

Sharing a snap of herself holding up a poster which read "respect female existence or expect our resistance", Emily wrote an impassioned caption telling her followers why she had demonstrated.

This is not an argument over whether or not Kavanaugh is guilty of sexual assault; this is an argument that men are still controlling women's bodies. One video featured Schumer being pushed forward by police beginning to round up protesters. Schumer told a CNN producer she was arrested. " It is clear that these vocal supporters not only disrespect female existence but also believe that a woman is something to be objectified and ogled, and can not be respected if she does not "dress appropriately". They need 51 yay votes for confirmation. "They represent hundreds, thousands, & millions of other women".

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.
