WASHINGTON -U.S. Capitol Police arrested hundreds of people protesting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's pending confirmation in the atrium of the Hart Senate Office Building on Thursday. Yesterday Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) made headlines when he told a group of women to "grow up" when they attempted to corner him with questions.

Several photographs were shared on social media in which Schumer and Ratjakowski could be seen in a line being escorted by police officers, along with many other protesters.

From comments like "put on a bra", surprisingly coming from a woman, and "Sorry I was focused on something else, can you say that again?".

Since this is Amy Schumer, and the internet continues to be consistently terrible to women, criticism of the star has been swift, with some claiming that this is a self-aggrandizing publicity stunt on her part, rather than a political stand.

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


During the protest, Amy Schumer was captured by MSNBC cameras among the women that were arrested as authorities removed the protesters one-by-one.

Amy also posted photos of the pair getting arrested after protesting at Capitol Hill. The protest comes hours after the FBI sent the Senate Judiciary Committee a report following its week-long investigation concerning allegations of sexual assault against the judge, which he has denied.

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

She concluded: "I demand a government that acknowledges, respects and supports women as much as it does men". The moderate senators are two of just a handful of politicians who have not yet announced whether they will be voting for or against his confirmation.

Writing in the Wall Street Journal ahead of Friday's procedural vote in the Senate on his nomination, Mr Kavanaugh acknowledged he said a few things he should not have.
