Taylor Swift Was Sent a Sacagawea Coin For Her Groping Lawsuit Award

Over the summer, Taylor Swift sued some shitty DJ for grabbing her ass and won an award of $1, which is all she was seeking in damages. Swift wanted a symbolic judgement and didn’t want to actually bankrupt the guy, just to send a message.

According to the AP, the DJ, David Mueller, followed through on his “plan” to send Swift a $1 coin as payment for her court ruling against him.

A former radio DJ who was ordered to pay a symbolic $1 to Taylor Swift for groping her at a photo op says he mailed her a Sacagawea coin last week.

David Mueller provided a letter to The Associated Press showing the payment was sent Nov. 28. Mueller previously told the AP he 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.

So how is this a “final jab”? Well, I found Mueller’s quote, and I still don’t understand his logic.

Mueller said he is thinking of giving Swift a Sacagawea dollar because the Native American is a prominent female.

“I mean if this is all about women’s rights. … It’s a little poke at them, a little bit,” he said. “I mean, I think they made this into a publicity stunt, and this is my life.”

Is the joke that it’s hard to buy a Coke in a vending machine with a $1 coin? That’s really all I can think of. When your gesture of defiance is overshadowed by the court room sketch artist, you probably missed the mark.
