Taylor Swift’s fans don’t mess around. The news just broke that David Mueller, the radio DJ who grabbed her butt and tried to sue her for losing his job over it, got a new gig in Mississippi. The radio station’s CEO said that Swifties were harassing the station’s Facebook page. Now, TMZ reports that someone sent a bomb threat to David’s new station.
David Mueller is back on air. David was the Denver radio DJ who Taylor Swift accused of grabbing her butt. He was fired from his job on Denver radio following the scandal and unsuccessfully sued Taylor for costing him his gig. He was instead found guilty of assault and battery. Now, he’s back on the radio, broadcasting under the name of a Confederate Civil War general.
A handful of people around the world might be finding themselves in a moral dilemma after Taylor Swift’s accused groper has now given his thoughts on her TIME Magazine feature. The DJ, David Mueller, says the pop star didn’t earn her slot on the powerful cover because her “silence breaker” status was court-ordered.
Taylor Swift’s trial began in Denver, Colorado on Tuesday. The case–which involves a suit filed against Taylor and a countersuit she filed–began with testimony from David Mueller, the DJ known as “Jackson” who stands accused of inappropriately touching her during a 2013 meet-and-greet.
David shared his version of the encounter between himself, Swift and his girlfriend, Shannon, saying, “She put her right arm around Shannon, pulled her towards her, and turned toward the photographer.”
“I immediately started moving to get into the picture,” he continued, laying out the exact moment when the alleged groping happened. “I felt what seemed to be a rib cage or ribs.”
Jury selection for Taylor Swift’s trial is set to begin on Monday, and court officials in Colorado are preparing for what they expect to be a circus. According to one report, the Denver court house’s Clerk of Court says they’re ready to handle a few hundred people if Swifties show up en masse.
“We are prepared for upwards of 200 people. Fans can start lining up for their court passes at 6 a.m.,” Jeff Cowell said. Only 32 members of the public will be admitted to the courtroom each day. Another 75 will get to watch a live feed of the trial on monitors. But cell phones, Taylor t-shirts, banners and signs are all forbidden in the Court House halls.
