Early this morning, the Associated Press reported that Taylor Swift received her $1 settlement after taking DJ David Mueller of Denver to court in a high-profile case. She alleges he groped her during a photoshoot in 2013. He counter-sued for defamation, and the jury ultimately ruled in Swift’s favor.
Mueller sent Swift her $1.00 in the form of a gold Sacagawea coin, because he’s petty as hell, apparently. The AP reports that Mueller “intended the coin featuring a prominent Native American woman as a final jab at the singer in a case her side called a win for all women.”
As our friends at Jezebel point out, it’s rude as hell and certainly not clever. Here are all the ways Mueller could’ve given Taylor the $1 settlement that would not leave us rage-foaming at the mouth:
- He could have mailed her a crisp $1 bill.
The end! Bye, bitch.
