The DJ sued for groping Taylor Swift gets in a final jab, the American Film Institute names their best of 2017, and more in today’s Hollywood Stories!
The former radio DJ who was ordered to pay a symbolic $1.00 to Taylor Swift for groping her rear end during a photo op says that he mailed her a Sacagawea dollar.
David Mueller provided a letter to the Associated Press showing that the payment was sent on November 28th, and he told the AP that he intended to send the coin featuring the prominent Native American woman as a final petty jab at the singer, in a case her side had called “the win for women.”
Obviously, he doesn’t think he did anything wrong, and obviously he thinks he was falsely accused, and obviously he feels that he lost his job… now he’s bitter and full of spite.
Ugh, can Taylor just re-sue him or something?
Alec Baldwin was on with Megyn Kelly, and he’s warning not to rush to judgment in these sexual harassment cases.
It’s worth noting, Baldwin has had his name thrown around as being a guy who’s mistreated women verbally, and he, himself, admitted in an op-ed piece that he has treated women with less respect than he gives to a man.
Ryan Reynolds is joining the cast of a live action Pokemon movie called Detective Pikachu. If you’re not familiar with Pokemon, all Pikachu can say is his name. “Pikachu!”

I, Tonya opens in movie theaters today in limited release. It’s the movie about Tonya Harding and the Nancy Kerrigan scandal, from Tonya’s point of view.
Margot Robbie plays Tonya Harding, and the real-life Tonya Harding has seen the movie and given it her seal of approval. Apparently, it’s a fantastic dark comedy.
Chris Pratt was talking about hunting on Twitter, when someone asked how people can literally still hunt in 2017. So he answered literally, talking about the weapons hunters, use the application process, and the safety courses they have to take, bringing another side to the story.
Stephen Colbert had a little bit of a different take on Frosty the Snowman. They brought him to life by putting a Make America Great Again hat on!
“See you later, snowflakes!” LOL.
