Taylor Swift Broke Her Tumblr Hiatus To Like This Post About Her Sexual Assault Trial

The story of this dad bringing his daughter to the sexual assault trial prompted Taylor to return to Tumblr for the first time in months.

And that has also meant taking a social media hiatus across all her accounts.

She has posted just 19 times on Instagram since the start of the year, and her Tumblr account, which was incredibly active during the height of 1989, has laid virtually dormant for months.

However, over the past 10 days, Swift has reappeared publicly as her sexual assault case went to trial.

The case was ignited back in 2015, when DJ David Mueller sued Swift for loss of income after he was fired from his job when she claimed he'd groped her during a meet and greet two years earlier. She countersued him for $1, alleging assault and battery.

Yesterday, the jury unanimously sided with Swift, finding David Mueller guilty of assault and battery, and awarded her the damages she'd asked for: A single dollar to symbolise the fact that the lawsuit was about nothing other than taking a stand for women.

In a statement released after the judgement, Swift said that she intends to donate "to multiple organisations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves."

Swift's comments during her testimony received widespread praise, and many of her fans have sent Swift endless messages of support throughout the trial.

taylor, i am so freaking proud of you. i love you so much. your strength helps me. i love you, i wish i told you in person♥️ @taylorswift13

But it was this quote from a piece about the trial that went particularly viral among her fans on Tumblr. The paragraph, from the New York Times, referenced a father who had brought his 10-year-old daughter to the trial as a way of "demonstrating the lessons he tries to teach her."

Her fans were, of course, thrilled by her return.
