The DJ Who Groped Taylor Swift Finally Paid His $1 Settlement In The Most Fucked Up Way

DJ David Mueller has officially paid Taylor Swift the money he owed her after he lost a defamation lawsuit earlier this year, but he did it in the absolute pettiest way. And honestly, it’s pretty insulting.

If you’ve forgotten about the lawsuit — though I’m sure you haven’t — here’s a quick recap: in 2013, after Swift accused Mueller of sticking his hand up her skirt during a backstage photo and notified the radio station he worked at, Mueller lost his job and was banned from going to T.

This Woman Says She Was Banned From Her College Campus Because She Made Her Alleged Rapist ‘Uncomfortable’

Anna Marie Rose Failla was a senior at Carnegie Mellon University when she was allegedly raped by one of her peers. She reported the incident to the university a few months later and asked them for a No Contact Agreement with her accused rapist, a document that would ensure that the two would not contact each other in any way. The university refused to comply and failed to inform Failla of any campus resources that could have helped her.

However, this all changed when Failla, now 23, returned as an alumna to an event called Carnival. She traveled 5 hours back to her university to see friends and attend theatre performances by a troupe she was once a part of. But prior to the event, Failla was contacted by CMU’s Title IX coordinator. Apparently her alleged aggressor had reached out to the Title IX office because he heard Failla would be attending the event, and now he was requesting a No Contact Agreement from her.
