Taylor Swift is giving bawse comebacks in the courtroom.
From random derriere gropes to lewd comments, have you ever ignored sexual harassment to just to be done with it ? Singer Taylor Swift may just be setting a new way for all of us to actually address the issue. Swift recently attended a cross-examination with the alleged perp's attorney and made some pretty bawse statements.
It started in 2013, when the singer accused radio host David Mueller of reaching under her skirt and grabbing her behind while taking a photograph.
While Mueller has since lost his job and is suing Swift for $3 million saying that her allegations are baseless, the singer is herself testifying against him.
Here are the top Taylor Swift-comebacks that you need in your life to make sure you never turn the other cheek when it comes to harassment:
Victim-shaming is real
During the cross-examination, attorney Gabe McFarland tried to make Tay-tay squeamish about being responsible for Mueller losing his job. Swift swatted his victim-shaming move by saying, "I’m not going to let you or your client make me feel in any way that this is my fault. Here we are years later, and I’m being blamed for the unfortunate events of his life that are the product of his decisions—not mine.” Oh snap!
Taylor Swift was also questioned about why her bodyguard didn't intervene during the incident and also if she was 'critical' of him not doing his job. We can all attest the futility of the question. A, why would he photo-bomb his boss? and B, why isn't anyone questioning Mueller about why he molested her in the first place? However, Taylor responded, "I’m critical of your client sticking his hand under my skirt and grabbing my ass.”
Shaken but not broken
In a profesh move, Swift allegedly continued with her meet-greet with fans even after the incident, which was brought up with McFarland asking her why didn't she just leave if she was so 'shaken up' by the harassment? Because apparently she's in the wrong for dong her job and still having the time to take on the accused. The singer coolly laid a burn by saying, “Your client could have taken a normal photo with me.” Yass kween!
