End of the Nightmare
Taylor Swift’s allegation that a former radio host reached under her skirt and grabbed her behind during a photo op is bringing a lot of attention for a common but hidden mistreatment of women.
According to a survey, 1 in 4 women were either groped or brushed up in a public place by a stranger atleast once in their lives. However, this issue is never talked about. And a lot of victims are keeping their mouths sealed against this issue.
The judge handling the case threw out the Denver radio host’s case against Taylor Swift in a trial last Friday. The US District Judge, William Martinez, determined that the pop superstar could not be held liable with the firing of DJ David Mueller.
Mueller denies groping Swift and sued the singer, Andrea Swift (her mother), and Frank Bell (radio handler). He is seeking up to $3 million as compensation for the alleged ruining of his career.
To Stand Up for Women
The songwriter stated in her countersuit that she wanted $1 as compensation and the chance to stand up for other women who became victims of sexual abuse and harassment. The jury is still considering her claim.
Swift was in tears as the judge read the decision. She spent an hour on the witness stand as she recounted the “despicable and horrifying and shocking” experience she encountered.
“He stayed attached to my bare ass-cheek as I lurched away from him,” Swift testified. “It was a definite grab. A very long grab,” she added in her testimony.
Swift also added that she tried to get as far away from Mueller as she could. She s
aid she told him and his girlfriend, who was also in the photo, “thank you for coming” in a monotone voice before they left.
She also said she was stunned and did not say anything to Mueller or halt the event after he left because she did not want to disappoint several dozen people waiting in line for photos with her.
