Taylor Swift took a stand with groping case

  • Taylor Swift opens up about her sexual assault trial for the first time since winning her $1 countersuit in August

When Taylor Swift took a photo with Colorado radio DJ David Mueller in 2013, she says he reached under her skirt and grabbed her behind. "I figured that if he would be brazen enough to assault me under these risky circumstances and high stakes, imagine what he might do to a vulnerable, young artist if given the chance", she told TIME. She reported the incident to Mueller's radio station, and he was sacked. A jury found David Mueller guilty. Why should I be polite?

Swift is still waiting for that dollar, by the way.

Like numerous women interviewed for the 2017 Person of the Year issue, Swift would not accept blame for the abuse she experienced.

TIME have named a group they dubbed the "Silence Breakers" - people who have spoken up about sexual misconduct, including Taylor, Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan, Selma Blair, and Alyssa Milano - their Person of the Year and in the accompanying feature, the "Look What You Made Me Do" hitmaker spoke frankly about the court case, admitting she didn't hold back on the witness stand.

What happened in the courtroom made headlines for weeks, but one of the mot profound moments was Swift's strong testimony against Mueller.

While Swift has yet to address the criticism, her inclusion on the cover has resulted in a massive online culture war.

According to Swift, people tried to make her feel sorry for making him lose his job.

Swift told Time she became angry as she watched Mueller's attorney "bully, badger and harass" her mother, who felt so "physically ill" after a cross-examination that she couldn't return to court when her daughter took the stand. "And it began with individual acts of courage by hundreds of women - and men too - who came forward to tell their own stories of sexual harassment and assault", Time's editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal said on Today.

"My advice [to sexual assault survivors] is that you not blame yourself and do not accept the blame others will try to place on you", she said.

When asked why she chose to take him to court and passionately testify against him, Swift explained that the decision had little to do with herself, but what he could do in the future to someone else.

Swift's loyal fans were eager to point out the importance of her role in this year's watershed moment of reckoning in regards to sexual assault and harassment, responding strongly to any backlash or protests on Twitter. She broke her silence in more ways than one and for that, we applaud her.
