DJ who lost groping lawsuit to Taylor Swift in new radio job
GREENWOOD, Miss.- The radio host fired after he lost a groping lawsuit to superstar Taylor Swift says he is "very grateful" for a new gig at a Mississippi station.
David Mueller tells the Greenwood Commonwealth that he had difficulty finding work in a big-city radio market. He started his job Monday in Greenwood, home to about 14,000 people.
A federal jury determined Mueller assaulted and battered Swift by grabbing her under her skirt as they posed for a 2013 photo in Denver. Mueller, who goes by "Jackson" on air, still denies that. He began co-hosting the "Jackson and Jonbob" show Monday.
The Washington Post quotes Delta Radio CEO David Fuss saying he believes Mueller's side of the story.
Mueller's hiring comes as the #MeToo movement draws attention to sexual assault and harassment.
