New video shows Amy Schumer telling a police officer she wants to be arrested while protesting Brett Kavanaugh‘s confirmation in Washington, D.C.
The 37-year-old comedian was detained, reports MSBNC, as she was led by a police officer toward a large group of protestors that were also being held while at the Hart Senate Office Building on Thursday.
“You want to be arrested?” a police officer asked her and another female as he pointed toward the larger group that was chanting with police officers surrounding them.
“Yes,” Schumer said while wearing a green button-down shirt that read “This Today then #ERA.”
A producer for CNN noted on Twitter that model Emily Ratajkowski was alongside Schumer during the protests as well.
“Amy Schumer and Emily Ratajkowski in the senate office building for #Kavanaugh protests,” Joel Williams wrote.
Ratajkowski tweeted shortly after, saying she was “arrested” for protesting. “Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power,” she tweeted.
