Brett Kavanaugh was officially confirmed as the 114th U.S Supreme Court Justice, following a 50-48 vote last week.

Despite the brave testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who accused him of sexual assault and protests of groups across the nation, Kavanaugh joins the highest court of the land and replaces retired Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Dr. Ford’s supporters hoped that her taking her allegations to the Senate and giving an undoubtedly difficult account to the judiciary committee would be enough to sway the vote.

Emily Ratajkowski and Amy Schumer were arrested during a protest about his appointment in Washington D.C

When the result was announced, protestors screamed “Shame! Shame! Shame!” and “I do not consent!” from the public gallery.

Thousands of other protestors surrounded the Supreme Court Building and U.S. Capitol to vent their anger at the decision.

And around the world, Kavanaugh’s confirmation caused strong reactions on Twitter. Not just anger but also heartbreak, disappointment and many expressing how they were sad but not surprised.
