Taylor Swift has been part of an ongoing trial against radio DJ David Mueller for sexual assault. At a 2013 meet-and-greet, Mueller groped Swift during a photo op which featured his girlfriend. Swift reported this and Mueller was fired from his job as a result. He sued her claiming “false allegations” and the loss of his dream job. Swift countersued and testified just yesterday.
She goes into explicit detail about his behavior and how inappropriate it was.
Many celebrities have come out to share their support for Swift and what she is doing. Here are some of the responses below:
Proud of @taylorswift13 for her fierce & cutting testimony & her refusal to settle for being treated like property. Her example is powerful.
