Taylor Swift’s testimony against a man she has accused of groping her has sparked a wave of support for the pop star on social media.

Swift alleges that former KYGO disc jockey David Mueller inappropriately touched her a backstage meet-and-greet in 2013.
“I am critical of your client for sticking his hand under my skirt and grabbing my ass,” Swift testified Thursday in response to a question from Mueller’s attorney.
