    Taylor Swift Fans Are Showing Their Support For Her After The Sexual Assault Trial In The Most Lovely Way

    Last year, Taylor successfully counter-sued the radio DJ who sexually assaulted her in 2013 for a symbolic $1.

    Radio DJ David Mueller was fired from his job in 2013 after Swift accused him of sexual assault and reported the incident to his employers. Two years later, he filed a lawsuit against her, claiming up to $3 million in damages and denying the assault ever happened.

    She then countersued for a single dollar, to serve as an "example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts".

    And, after her seriously badass testimony, the jury ruled unanimously in Taylor's favour.

    Ten days after the verdict, Taylor released the video for her comeback single, "Look What You Made Me Do." In one scene a single dollar bill was placed in shot, in reference to the courtcase.

    And it seems as though the dollar bill has become an important symbol for Taylor Swift fans. In fact, during her recent show in Denver – the city in which the trial took place – fans held up dollar bills during her performance of "Long Live" and "New Year's Day."

    One fan shared the images on Tumblr alongside the comment: "I think there were about 10 - 15 of us waving $1 bills in the air. Sorry for the lack of good quality photos of this special moment. I was pretty emotional."

    While others described it as "beautiful."

    All of which is just so lovely. 💕
