DJ Accused Of Groping Taylor Swift Sends Singer Dollar Coin As Settlement

DJ Accused Of Groping Taylor Swift Sends Singer Dollar Coin As Settlement

In this August 10 courtroom sketch, singer Taylor Swift speaks from the witness stand during her trial against a former radio DJ she had accused of groping her.

The Associated Press reports that Mueller provided them with a letter showing that his payment was sent to Swift on November 28 in the form of a single Sacagawea coin. In case you forgot, after Mueller sued the blonde songstress for $3 million over claims she lied about the grope, the Gorgeous singer hit back with a countersuit. Her advice for victims of sexual assault and harassment, on the other hand, is priceless. "I mean, I think they made this into a publicity stunt, and this is my life", he told the AP. "You should not be blamed for waiting 15 minutes, 15 days or 15 years to report sexual assault or harassment, or for the outcome of what happens to a person after or she makes the choice to sexually harass or assault you".

If you are familiar with all of the hidden messages in Taylor's legendary "Look What You Made Me Do" music video, then you may know the significance of the single dollar bill floating in the bathtub of riches she sits in.

"It means 'no means no" and it tells every woman they will decide what will be tolerated with their body, 'Taylor's attorney said, according to The Independent via Reuters at the time.

Swift's loyal fans were eager to point out the importance of her role in this year's watershed moment of reckoning in regards to sexual assault and harassment, responding strongly to any backlash or protests on Twitter. But, it's an entirely different thing to diminish the kind of courage it takes for a woman to face her assaulter in open court and win. "This man hadn't considered any formalities when he assaulted me".

Portions of her testimony quickly went viral, with many praising Swift for her courage in court as she refused to give any ground to Mueller's legal team. I was angry. In that moment, I chose to forego any courtroom formalities and just answer the questions the way it happened. In the story, Swift said she had not yet received the dollar; she said "that act of defiance is symbolic in itself". At first, everyone thought that Taylor was suing him. The federal jury in Denver, Colorado ruled in Swift's favor.

Swift, who won the lawsuit, also offered advice to women who may find themselves in a similar situation. There was an audible gasp in the courtroom when I was named as the defendant.
