Lena Dunham, Nelly Furtado & More Show Support for Taylor Swift Amidst Trial
On Thursday (Aug. 10) Taylor Swift gave a fearless testimony as she took the witness stand in her lawsuit against radio DJ David Mueller, who allegedly touched her without permission.
Swift took a powerful stance, explaining that she will not stand for anyone treating her inappropriately, making comments like "I am not going to allow you or your client to make me feel this is any way my fault, because it isn’t" -- and a number of celebrities and musicians, including Lena Dunham and Nelly Furtado, have come to her aid in offering support.
Dunham, one of Swift's friends, took to Twitter to announce just how proud of the pop star she was. She tweeted, “Proud of @taylorswift13 for her fierce & cutting testimony & her refusal to settle for being treated like property.”
Fellow artist Furtado was also impressed to hear the 1989 artist speak out, and even shared she relates to Swift's experience. Furtado said, “Been in several meet n' greets where radio staff attempt to cross lines. Love @taylorswift13 for fighting 4 women's safety in the workplace.”
