Actress Piper Perabo was arrested for protesting at the confirmation hearing for Brett Kavanaugh. Perabo took to Twitter to discuss her arrest and her fight for equal rights.
According to Fox News:
Actress Piper Perabo said she was arrested while protesting Supreme Court judge nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing and posted a video showing her being escorted out of the courtroom by police.
Perabo took to Twitter Tuesday, where she is very politically active and even has a cover image criticizing Kavanaugh, to share the video of a woman interrupting the proceedings to call for senators to vote “no” on confirming the Trump-selected judge.
As they were both escorted out of the room by police, another woman stood up to voice her protest.
“I was just arrested for civil disobedience in the Kavanaugh hearings,” the actress, known for “Covert Affairs” and “Coyote Ugly” wrote. “Many citizens before me have fought for the equal rights of women. I can’t be silent when someone is nominated to the Supreme Court who would take our equal rights away.”
In the video, it is unclear what Perabo actually did to warrant an arrest, but she can be clearly seen being escorted out by police.
