DJ found guilty of groping Taylor Swift lands radio job in Mississippi

Clarksdale, Mississippi country radio station KIX 92.7 has hired David Mueller, the DJ who was sacked for groping Taylor Swift in 2013.

David Mueller was hired at a radio station in MS where he is the new co-host of a show where he uses the on-air name "Stonewall Jackson".

After Swift and her team banned him from the musician's concerts, he sued Swift for $3m (£2.1m) in damages, saying her accusations were false and destroyed his career. Swift countersued for $1, and won a civil trial by jury in August after giving a frank, damning testimony against Mueller.

I may not be a fan of Taylor Swift, but she was courageous and candid about her experience, and just after she was on the Time cover for being part of the #MeToo movement, the man who grabbed her is being rewarded with a new job.


"I sat down with him face-to-face in Minneapolis before I offered him the job and talked to him about it", Fuss said to New York Daily News. "I tend to believe his version of the story and most people who have talked to him face-to-face do believe his version of the story".

The hiring was met with backlash on social media, but Fuss defends his decision. He also said that most of the people who seem to be upset about it "don't have a clue" or "don't really have knowledge of the facts".

See some of the passionate responses below. Now, Swifties are hoping to get Mueller fired once again, calling out his new employer via Twitter (and even calling the radio station) and proclaiming Times Up for assaulters in the music industry. It's all originating from some Taylor Swift fan group somewhere. But he did admit that the decision was "maybe a tiny bit" about publicity. They're telling people to go to this station's webpage and post negative comments. Mueller later said that Swift wasn't a "hero" for testifying against him in court.

Some of the employees at the station were understandably skeptical of the hire at first Fuss added.
