Model and actress Emily Ratajkowski protested Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme court, but social media was more concerned about her outfit
Model and actress Emily Ratajkowski joined about 300 others on Thursday to protest the nomination of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of multiple counts of sexual assault.
Holding a sign that read: 'Respect female existence or expect our resistance', the 27-year-old helped storm the atrium of a senate office building before being arrested.
Ratajkowski shared news of her arrest on Twitter, accompanied by a picture of herself at the rally.
'Today I was arrested protesting the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, a man who has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault,' she captioned the image.
'Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power.'
And though she was protesting against sexual assault and campaigning for the voices of women to be respected, many appeared to miss the point, and instead directed their comments straight at her chest.
'Why no bra tho [sic],' one man responded, while another ignored her message and wrote: 'My guess is you dressed like this to catch the eyes of … (looks at notes) … men'.
The actress was arrested after her protest group stormed the atrium of a Senate office, as was Amy Schumer. They starred together in Schumer's recent movie I Feel Pretty
Women were also behind the ugly attacks, with one slamming Ratajkowski's 'f me clothes' and 'twisted toxic feminism'.
In addition to comments about her outfit, some joked about her arrest and what they would have done if they were the police in that situation, suggesting they would take the opportunity to touch the actress, who was protesting a Supreme Court candidate on the basis multiple women had accused him of sexual assault.
'If I were a cop I would arrest you on the off chance that I would be the one who gets to frisk you! For several hours,' one man wrote.
A furious fan jumped in to defend Ratajkowski, and said people commenting on the model's appearance were only proving her point.
Many questioned why Ratajkowski did not wear a bra to the protest, while others made vile comments about 'frisking' the 27-year-old
'To all the men commenting about her appearance, saying things like "I would've liked to frisk/cuff ya", asking why she's not wearing a bra, you're a huge part of the problem that she's protesting.' she wrote.
'Educate yourselves, respect women.'
Though there was widespread outrage about the Kavanaugh nomination following allegations of sexual misconduct from at least three different women, a brief FBI investigation concluded Friday, paving the way for his confirmation vote to reach the Senate floor.
Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation will still likely sail through as swing votes Jeff Flake (R- Arizona), Susan Collins (R – Maine) and Joe Manchin (D – West Virginia) have all announced their support for the Judge.
The Senate is expected to vote about 4pm on Saturday, and if he is confirmed as expected, he will become a Supreme Court justice, which is a lifetime role.
Brett Kavanaugh will likely be appointed a justice of the Supreme Court on Saturday afternoon after his nomination was nearly derailed by allegations of sexual assault
