Taylor Swift groper hired as DJ at Mississippi radio station


David Mueller was sued for a dollar by the music superstar last year.

The man sacked from his job as a DJ for groping superstar Taylor Swift has been hired by a Mississippi radio station.

Delta Radio CEO David Fuss said he believes David Mueller’s side of the story – and added that the new recruit sounds good on the air.

Swift sued Mr Mueller for a dollar last year, saying he grabbed her backside while posing for a photo.

Mr Mueller, who uses the last name “Jackson” on air, denies the allegation. He started co-hosting the Jackson and Jonbob show on Monday.

His hiring comes amid the #MeToo movement aimed at drawing attention to sexual assault and harassment.

Mr Fuss said the hiring decision was also “maybe a tiny bit” about publicity.
