DJ Who Groped Taylor Swift Describes 'Final Jab' at Pop Star: 'I Wanted to Send a Message'
David Mueller sent Swift a one-dollar Sacajawea coin after a jury sided with her in the case.
The battle between Taylor Swift and the DJ who groped her at a 2013 meet-and-greet is heating up again.
Four months ago, a jury ordered David Mueller to pay the singer a symbolic $1 judgment for the groping incident.
After waiting three-and-a-half months, he sent her a $1 coin featuring legendary Native American princess Sacajawea, and act that has been viewed as a "final jab at the singer,” according to The Associated Press.
"I wanted to send a message," Mueller told Inside Edition.
He claims he wasn't being disrespectful when he sent the coin. On the contrary, he meant it as a sign of respect.
"I can also support women and I want them to have a voice and I wanted to mention a specific group of female Native American females, Sacajawea was a heroic Native American female," he said.
He says he hoped sending the coin would change people's negative view of him after the singer’s victory in court.
The former DJ doesn't expect the coin situation to be the end of their feud now that Swift has become a symbol of women fighting sexual harassment. She has even appearing on the cover of Time magazine's "Person of the Year" issue.
She told the magazine that if Mueller "would be brazen enough to assault me under these risky circumstances, imagine what he might do to a vulnerable, young artist if given the chance."
"She tried to frame my lawsuit into her defending all women who've been attacked by creepy guy and I'm the head of the creepy guys," he said. "I wanted her to know I am not a creepy guy. I've never been a creepy guy."
