“Look at Ms. Swift’s face. Is that the face of someone who’s in shock, who is upset?” she asked the jury.
A lawyer for the former radio DJ accused of groping Taylor Swift told jurors Monday that the pop star’s account is inconsistent with the testimony of every other member of her team. As the pop star cried in federal court during closing arguments, he questioned why Swift was smiling in a photo taken at the time she said the alleged assault took place.
“Look at Ms. Swift’s face. Is that the face of someone who’s in shock, who is upset?” Gabriel McFarland, representing former country station DJ David Mueller, said while showing the photograph from before a 2013 concert with Mueller and Swift together that Swift has said was taken the moment she he grabbed hear backside.
Swift, who testified forcefully last week, cried and wiped her face as her mother, Andrea Swift, touched her right leg. Her lawyer also rubbed her back. Andrea Swift also touched her daughter’s hand as McFarland said the photograph meant nothing.
