After Taylor Swift was paid a $1 settlement in a sexual assault case against DJ David Mueller, it’s hard to imagine the situation getting any more petty. But somehow Mueller has outdone himself by paying Swift in one Sacagawea coin.
Mueller was ordered to pay Swift $1 in damages for groping her at a photo op, and him choosing to pay her with the Sacagawea coin is just another jab at her and women. According to the Associated Press, he “intended the coin featuring a prominent Native American woman as a final jab at the singer in a case her side called a win for all women.”
Mueller had initially sued Swift for defamation, demanding $3 million in damages, but the jury ruled in Swift’s favor. Yesterday Time magazine featured Swift on its Person of the Year cover as part of “The Silence Breakers,” due to her high-profile trial with Mueller.
