Footage from the sit-in shows an officer asking Schumer whether she wants to be arrested, to which she responds, "Yes".
Amy Schumer and Emily Ratajkowski, stars of the 2018 rom-com I Feel Pretty and apparent IRL besties, were reportedly arrested on Thursday afternoon in Washington D.C. while protesting Judge Brett Kavanaugh's SCOTUS confirmation.
Thousands of protesters, among them victims of sexual assault, have descended upon the US Capitol with a desperate final appeal to lawmakers to reject embattled supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
'Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power'. Her message- anyone who votes for Kavanaugh is saying women don't matter.
A second video, apparently filmed by Schumer herself and sent to a woman who posted it online, sees the comedian say: "Hi Zola, I'm here with your mom". She told the crowd: "We're going to keep showing up and no matter how this goes they can not keep us down".
Activists from across the USA were encouraged to let their voices be heard on Thursday, and thousands showed up to urge the nation's top politicians not to let Kavanaugh take a seat among the country's top judges. "And no matter how this goes, they can not keep us down", Schumer said.
Thousands of women took to the streets of the United States capital in a last-ditch effort to appeal to senators to reject Kavanaugh's confirmation. "Let's fight. Let's keep showing up".
The model turned actress and activist also tweeted out a photo of her holding up a poster that reads, "Respect female existence or expect our resistance".
The protesters then moved to the Hart building.
Trump did so - and on Thursday, the Senate began reviewing the FBI's results after receiving the report early that morning.
