The radio DJ convicted groping Taylor Swift has been hired by a radio station in Mississippi.
Mueller is now employed by 92.7 KIX, where he goes by the pseudonym Stonewall Jackson (a nod to the Confederate general), and co-hosts a morning show called Jackson & Jonbob.
Mueller’s new boss Larry Fuss Delta Radio has said that he believes Mueller is innocent, telling the New York Daily News, “He’s either the world’s best liar, or he’s telling the truth.”
A number Swift’s fans have leapt to her defence, publicly shaming Delta Radio on social media for hiring the assaulter and denying Swift’s court-proven claims.
See some the passionate responses below.
As previously reported, Mueller’s legal battle with Swift began after she claimed that he groped her during a 2013 meet-and-greet in Denver. After an internal KYGO investigation, he was fired.
Mueller initiated the court battle, suing Swift for $3 million USD in damages and blaming her for losing his job. She successfully countersued with allegations sexual assault, winning a symbolic $1 settlement.
