On October 4, 2018, model and activist Emily Ratajkowski was one of thousands who marched on Capitol Hill to protest Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Ratajkowski, who carried a sign reading, "Respect Femaile Existence or Expect Our Resistance," was detained by law enforcement during the protest. She posted about her arrest on Instagram, saying:
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. Kavanaugh's confirmation as a Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States is a message to women in this country that they do not matter. I demand a government that acknowledges, respects, and supports women as much as it does men.

"I take responsibility for the situation at LAX today. I unintentionally bought my legally owned gun which is registered in my name to the airport. I am so sorry for any trouble it caused, but I am appreciative of TSA's efforts in implementing the safety laws that are in place to protect our beautiful country. More than anything I am humiliated and embarrassed that this even happened. But am thankful to the TSA, LAPD and all involved today for their kindness and their professionalism during this process.
