Amy Schumer, Emily Ratajkowski and other three hundred people were arrested in Washington D.C. on Thursday, October 4, while protesting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Thousands of demonstrators rallied outside the Court before some hundreds moved inside Senate buildings, chanting anti-Kavanaugh slogans and waving signs like “Believe Survivors” and “Kava-Nope".

According to US Capitol Police, 302 people were arrested in total at the Hart and Dirksen Hart Senate Office Buildings.

Former Last Comic Standing star Amy raised her fist to cameras in defiance as she was led away from by police.

Earlier in the day, Amy told a rally, "A vote for Kavanaugh is a vote saying women don’t matter."

Model Emily, on the other hand, took to Twitter to reveal that was also arrested outside the Supreme Court.

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

She added, "Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power."

Here's the tweet, check it out.

The protest came ahead of deciding votes on Brett’s nomination set to take place on Friday and Saturday.
