In her statement to the court, Taylor said the man who assaulted her had not given her the dollar owed to her, which "is an act of defiance in itself". He was sacked from country radio station KYGO days after Swift's management team reported what happened.

During the aftermath of Taylor Swift's sexual assault case, she has chosen to reflect on her testimony against David Mueller. "In that moment, I made a decision to forego any courtroom formalities and just answer the questions the way it happened", she said.

During her court proceedings, Taylor turned to the "Rainbow" singer, who is now embroiled in her own legal battle against her former producer Dr. Luke, whom she claims sexually assaulted and emotionally abused her. When she was named as the defendant at the start of the trial she said there was "an audible gasp in the courtroom", and that's when the support starting pouring in for her from social media and from other celebrities, including a phone call from Kesha who also went to trial against music producer Dr. Luke.

In August of 2017, Taylor Swift stood trial against a man who claimed that her allegations of sexual assault were the reason he had been fired from his job. Swift, as well as actresses Rose McGowan, Ashley Judd, activist Tarana Burke and many others who have publicly accused men in power of assaulting women are included. For her, it was necessary to report the groping incident.

Speaking to the magazine, Swift opened up for the first time about Mueller's sexual assault against her, which involved the former DJ reaching up her skirt and placing his hand on her bare butt. "You might be made to feel like you're overreacting, because society has made this stuff seem so casual".

"My advice is that you do not blame yourself and do not accept the blame others will try to place on you", Swift said.

Swift's straightforward testimony was widely reported at the time, and she explained that that was the only way to counteract what she'd been through.

Ultimately, she used her interview to share a message for victims of assault and harassment.

"In that moment, I chose to forego any courtroom formalities and just answer the questions the way it happened". This man hadn't considered any formalities when we assaulted me, and his lawyer didn't hold back on my mom - why should I be polite?

"Even though awareness is higher than ever about workplace sexual harassment, there are still so many people who feel victimised, afraid and silenced by their abusers and circumstances".

As for Swift's advice to fans in the aftermath of her trail, she wants those who are abused to know that it's fine for them to come to terms with their assault at their own pace. Going to court to confront this type of behavior is a lonely and draining experience, even when you win, even when you have the financial ability to defend yourself.
