Since the FBI's judgement increased the likelihood Kavanaugh would be voted into the Supreme Court, protests were organised on the Capitol steps. The supermodel was criticized for not wearing a bra to the protests, which Schumer quips would not have been a good idea.
Since this is Amy Schumer, and the internet continues to be consistently very bad 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.
Thousands of women turned out to protest his nomination in Washington yesterday - with actress Amy Schumer among hundred arrested.
Amy Schumer was detained on Thursday while protesting against Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court, reports said.
She also held a protest sign that read, "We believe Anita Hill".
Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual abuse by three women, including Christine Blasey Ford, who testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last the week, saying she was 100 per cent sure that the Supreme Court nominee tried to rape her in 1982. Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on September 27 before Kavanaugh, who vehemently denied Ford's allegations.
He has also been accused by other women and denied all allegations. "Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power".
Protesters gathered at the Hart Senate Building atrium after Capitol Police barricaded the front of the Capitol.
Let's say it together: let's fight! "I demand a government that acknowledges, respects and supports women as much as it does men". Other key swing senators Flake, Collins and Manchin voted "yes".
