According to reports from Us Weekly, the DJ accused of groping Taylor Swift while taking a photo, David Mueller, had a rough day at his new job. The publication revealed that the station where he works received a bomb threat on his first day.
On the 29th of January, Monday, Mueller started his new job at KIX 92.7 in Greenwood, Mississippi. Allegedly, an employee who worked at the station claimed someone sent a “threatening email” which said, to “enjoy the bomb” and “you’ll be sorry for what you’ve done.”
Taylor Swift testified in court today, saying that she was "completely sure" former radio host David Mueller intentionally sexually assaulted her during a 2013 press photo. "It was a definite grab … A very long grab. He grabbed my ass underneath my skirt," she said on the stand. The legal battle has occurred for nearly two years after the radio DJ sued Swift, her mother, and her radio promotions director. Swift filed a countersuit one month later.

Us Weekly claims the police showed up around 9 a.m. to investigate a bomb threat after someone from the radio station had called.
Chief Ray Moore, in a statement to the publication, stated that they cleared the building after going through the typical protocol.
Additionally, the police brought in a bomb dog, who goes around sniffing through the building looking for clues. Following the discovery that there was no bomb, everyone went back inside and resumed working.
However, despite reports, it isn’t currently known if the letter was sent directly to Mueller. As you may know, David lost his job at Denver’s 98.5 KYGO country music station in 2013 after he allegedly grabbed Taylor Swift.
Mueller filed a lawsuit for defamation against the 10-time Grammy Award winner after he had been fired. The 28-year-old singer countersued him and won the symbolic $1 she requested.
In a statement to Time Magazine in December, Swift said that going to court to fight back against an abuser is lonely and emotionally draining, even if you win, or have the financial means to defend yourself. Swift said many other people still feel victimized in the workplace and are afraid of their abusers, but can’t fight back because of their circumstances.
