Early last month, Emily Ratajkowski and Amy Schumer were detained by Washington, D.C. police while protesting the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. On Wednesday, a Halloweened-up Ratajkowski recalled the experience for Jimmy Kimmel.
“I had just landed from Europe and … I got this text message [that] was like, ‘Hey, want to get arrested with me this week?'” Ratajkowski recalled. “I knew, obviously, what she was referring to because [she] had been updating us on the Kavanaugh hearings.”
Ratajskowski was in.
Though the duo planned to get arrested, they didn’t prepare for it — and it was HOT in D.C. that day.
“Amy is pregnant, which is amazing, but no one knew at that point,” Ratajkowski said. “We were detained for four hours, sitting outside on the ground. And she keeps going to the bathroom and everyone’s kind of looking at her — the guys, the police, the Capital Police — were like, ‘Why does this lady need to keep going to the bathroom?'”

Ratajkowski’s and Schumer’s misdemeanor crime, unlawfully demonstrating in the atrium of the Hart Senate Office Building, carried just a $50 fine. A Capitol Police spokeswoman told TheWrap that 293 individuals were arrested for the offense.
Another nine were arrested for “unlawful demonstration activities” on the fourth floor of the Dirksen Senate Office Building. All were charged with “Crowding, Obstructing, or Incommoding.”
Ratajkowski’s new movie “Welcome Home” is available now on DirecTV and opens in theaters Nov. 16.
