After Time Magazine announced 'Silence Breakers' as the 'Person of the Year', pop star Taylor Swift became the focus of attention on social media. 

Several people on social media questioned her inclusion as a "silence breaker", stating that her incident wasn't as serious as compared to some other people who deserved to be on the cover more than her, media reports said. 

However, according to  Time, the kind of impact an incident has on the audience makes more sense. And in her case, it did. 

In the magazine, Swift talks about her sexual harassment incident in detail - how she was groped by DJ Mueller during a meet-and-greet photo session. 

Mueller had then filed a defamation suit against Swift who then filed a countersuit of $1 against him and won. Her aim was to “serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts."

While some people expressed their anger and confusion about Swift's inclusion in the cover, other fans were in her support.
