Emily Ratajkowski and Amy Schumer Detained At Kavanaugh Protests

Ratajkowski and her “I Feel Pretty” co-star were in DC protesting the Supreme Court nomination.

On Thursday afternoon, Amy Schumer and Emily Ratajkowski were among the protesters who were detained while demonstrating the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Protesting at the Hart Senate Office Building in Washington DC, the actresses, who worked together on the film I Feel Pretty, had multiple issues with police which were captured on social media.

“No matter how this goes, they cannot keep us down,” Schumer said during the protest according to Variety. “We will win. A vote for Kavanaugh is a vote saying women don’t matter.”

On her Twitter account, Ratajkowski also posted a photo of herself with the caption: “Today I was arrested protesting the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, a man who has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault. Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power.”

A number of other pictures of the Cruise star were also snapped.
