Model and actress Emily Ratajkowski was also arrested.
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. pic.twitter.com/nnwq1O4qk3

According to reports, over 300 people were arrested during the protest on Thursday.
Benny Johnson from the Daily Caller captured video of the Capitol Police asking Schumer and Ratajkowski if they wanted to be arrested. Schumer is seen saying yes, and march off to be arrested.

The arrest, although real in the government’s eyes, is a symbolic one and an act that will earn them a badge of honor in liberal Hollywood. Despite the fact they are protesting a man whose accusers have zero evidence and a nominee who has gone through seven FBI background checks.
