Hundreds of people were detained while protesting Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court today.
As Huffington Post pointed out, “Cancel Kavanaugh” protestors took over the Hart Senate Office Building near the Capitol. The police detained many, including Schumer and actress Emily Ratajkowski. But rather than handcuffs, police used pink bracelets.
Before being detained, Schumer said in a Twitter video: “I think we’re going to get arrested.”
Just ran into @amyschumer who is being arrested outside the Hart Office building. I asked her what the pink bracelets were for.
“For drinking,” she quipped, without missing a beat. (Colored bracelets are being used instead of ziptie handcuffs) pic.twitter.com/11ZS06D3Vk

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
