Comedian Amy Schumer and model-actress Emily Ratajkowski They were among the 300 people arrested Thursday at a protest against controversial U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in Washington, D.C.
Capitol Police said they arrested 302 people during the demonstrations. Video from the scene shows the two actresses being detained after an officer asks if they want to be arrested.
Video of actress Schumer being detained by police circulated on Twitter, as model Ratajkowski said on social media that she was arrested.
Schumer can be seen interacting with police in the short Twitter video while holding a poster that reads “We believe Anita Hill.” She also wore a shirt that read “This today, then #ERA” on the back.
"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," Ratajkowski tweeted.
Following Kavanaugh's nomination, 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 has repeatedly denied the allegations. He is facing multiple accusations of sexual misconduct dating back to when he was in high school.
