Emily Ratajkowski is getting trolled for her wardrobe choice during Thursday’s protest — and subsequent arrest — against the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault by three women.
The 27-year-old model and actress was shamed for not wearing a bra by people who flooded her social media accounts with comments. Ratajkowski fired back Saturday on Twitter, writing, “Stop telling me how to dress or what to do with my body, thanks.”

Amy Schumer, who was arrested alongside Ratajkowski this week, is coming to her I Feel Pretty co-star’s defense. In a lengthy post on Instagram, the comedian slammed people for completely missing the point of their actions. “Emily sacrificed herself fighting to protect women’s rights to choose what they do with their own bodies. How about we show her the same courtesy and direct some of that toxic energy to the people who deserve it.”
Schumer added that she wasn’t wearing a bra, either. “In the ‘what to wear when being detained for 4 hours on an 87 degree day after a 2 hour march’ handbook,” she quipped, “Bras aren’t recommended.”
The Trainwreck star went on to condemn people defending Kavanaugh against the assault allegations. “Anyone writing ‘innocent until proven guilty’ didn’t watch the hearings,” Schumer stated. “But if you actually listened to Dr. Ford and then listened to Kavanaugh you would have no doubt. That’s why it’s called a hearing. So you can hear. But you didn’t. You put on Fox News which is sheer fiction and made up your mind.”
Schumer, 37, and Ratajkowski were among the 300 individuals arrested in Washington, D.C., on Thursday. All were charged with “Crowding, obstructing, or incommoding,” which presumably includes the actresses, although a Capitol Police spokeswoman was unable to confirm the names of those arrested. Arrestees will be charged a $50 fine for the misdemeanor offense, police tell The Wrap.
Both stars documented their experience on social media.
