Lena Dunham is all too happy for her friend Taylor Swift, who took the stand yesterday to offer the Denver court with a strong testimony against former radio DJ David Mueller, who allegedly groped her during a 2013 M&G session.

On Thursday (August 10), the Girls actress took to Twitter to sound off on Swift's testimony. "Proud of [Taylor] for her fierce & cutting testimony & her refusal to settle for being treated like property. Her example is powerful," she told her 5.55 million followers.

Swift's case is making the rounds, particularly because of her bold recounts of the event. "It was a definite grab, [a] very long grab," the 27-year-old star said in court, according to ABC’s Denver affiliate. "It was long enough for me to be completely sure it was intentional. He stayed on my bare ass cheek as I lurched away from him uncomfortably," Swift explained. "The first couple of milliseconds, I thought it must be a mistake. I moved to the side very quickly. 'After this happened, a light switched off in my personality. I just said in a monotone voice, 'Thank you for coming.'"

Mueller, who has denied the claims that he put his hand up her dress and grabbed her bottom as they posed for a photo prior to her Denver concert on June 2, 2013, was fired two days after the incident and went on to sue Swift, her mother and her radio promotions director Frank Bell for $3 million in damages, alleging that they pressured the station to terminate him. He has since revealed the termination has kept him from working in the entertainment industry. Team Swift has countersued and accused him of assault and battery.
