A group of Taylor Swift fans who work across the street from where the singer is testifying for her sexual assault case have found a heartfelt and creative way to show their support for the pop star throughout the week.
Employees in the office building across from the Denver courthouse where Swift’s case against former radio DJ David Mueller is taking place have started using Post-it notes to write messages of support—using Swift’s songs as inspo—in their windows, which overlook the Alfred A. Arraj U.S. Courthouse. Reporters covering the trial have been keeping up with the window art, posting photos to Twitter of each new message. On Monday, the first day of the trial, the office workers cheekily wrote “Free Tay!” in the windows. They followed it up on Tuesday with the slightly more ambitious “Haterz Gonna Hate,” along with a Post-it note heart and a rainbow-color display of skeins of yarn. On Thursday the mystery artists and T.Swift fans preserved the yarn decorations and bright yellow heart, but swapped the previous message for “I Knew You Were TROUBLE!” And on Friday they wrote “FEARLESS” and replaced the yarn with colorful patterned pillows.
Denver’s local Fox31 news station visited the office building, home to the corporate headquarters of hobby company Craftsy, which explains why they have so much yarn on hand. Craftsy employee Carly Chapple, who reportedly organized the show of support, told Fox31, “I noticed that there was a lot going on across the street.” She added, “Taylor is a really great role model. She’s a super-creative person.”
Die-hard Swifties praised the Post-it pros’ sweet displays on Twitter. “Brb I’m sending a fruit basket to ‘office with Taylor Swift support stickies on window,'” one user wrote. “In this house, we stan the ladies behind the window words of support for @taylorswift13,” another tweeted.
Swift, 27, is currently countersuing Mueller for just $1 after he sued her for $3 million in 2015, alleging that her claims that he groped her backside during a 2013 meet-and-greet cost him his job and reputation. The 1989 singer took the stand on Thursday to testify against Mueller and, in the process, made several powerful statements about sexual assault, including, when asked whether she felt bad about Mueller losing his job due to her allegations, “I’m not going to let you or your client make me feel in any way that this is my fault. Here we are years later, and I’m being blamed for the unfortunate events of his life that are the product of his decisions—not mine.”
