Women Are Celebrating & Supporting Taylor Swift's Trial Victory On Twitter
After four hours of deliberation, a jury reached a verdict regarding Taylor Swift's groping trial on Monday, Aug. 14. As TMZ reported, the jury ruled in favor of Swift in the countersuit against David Mueller, a former radio DJ who she alleged reached up her dress during a meet-and-greet in 2013. Given the subject matter of this case, it shouldn't come as a surprise that women are celebrating Swift's victory on Twitter. People are fired up about this news, and we've got the tweets to prove it.
After the verdict was announced, the "Bad Blood" singer's rep released the following statement to Bustle:
