Celebrities react to Taylor Swift's 'cutting' testimony in groping trial

Posted on

Taylor Swift on Thursday testified against former radio DJ David Mueller, whom she has accused of groping her during a 2013 meet-and-greet. Mueller has denied that he assaulted the singer, saying that her false allegations led to the loss of his “dream job” at 98.5 KYGO.

Swift had a lot to say about Mueller’s lawsuit and her countersuit when she took the stand in Denver federal court, and her many responses to Mueller’s attorney, Gabriel McFarland — including “You can ask me a million questions about it and I’m never going to say something different” — are getting reactions from celebrities on social media. Read on to see what Lena Dunham, Nelly Furtado, Hayley Williams, and more stars had to say.
