For those of you who didn't get a chance to see Lady Gaga perform at a local bar, now's your chance to relive the moment over and over again

Lady Gaga expressed her gratitude for the brave women speaking out against Donald Trump.

A 2005 tape of Trump making lewd comments about women as he hung out with Access Hollywood host Billy Bush surfaced last week, and now many women are coming forward  sharing their stories of Trump’s alleged sexual abuse and assault.

After watching a report about the women on Anderson Cooper 360, Gaga, herself a survivor of rape, took to Twitter on Thursday (Oct. 13, 2016) to “applaud” these women.

“Thank [you] to the panelists @AC360 for explaining why women are coming forward now: because Trump’s words [at the] debate sent abused women into a panic,” she wrote in one tweet.

“Check out [and] trend #WhyWomenDontReport to have a better understanding,” Gaga added in another post. “For me, it was like re-living it all over again. I applaud these women.”

Gaga co-wrote the Oscar-nominated song “Til It Happens To You” for the documentary The Hunting Ground, an exposé of rape crimes on U.S. college campuses, their institutional cover-ups, and the devastating toll they take on students and their families.
