(The Root) — Folks in the social media world really aren’t fans of juror B37 in the Zimmerman trial. The juror sat down for an interview with Anderson Cooper on CNN last night, speaking under condition of anonymity. She described the deliberation process and gave her feelings on George Zimmerman, calling him a man with a “good heart” who “just went too far.”
Twitter wasn’t excited to hear any of this. It was especially outraged to hear that juror B37 had signed a book deal to write about her experience during the trial. That someone was already planning to profit from the killing of Trayvon Martin appalled people so much that they decided to do something about it. User @MoreAndAgain led the charge that eventually got juror B37’s book deal dropped.
The discussion of juror B37 continues, and it isn’t exactly full of bunnies, puppies and unicorns.
Juror b37, you are a despicable opportunist who should be ashamed of herself for attempting to profit from this whole ordeal.

People like juror b37 live in a bubble. They don’t want to know about cultural differences nor do they care

Juror B37 has special powers to know what was in Zimmerman’s heart. Those powers stop when it comes to knowing what was in Trayvon’s heart.

Every time I hear B37 say that Zimmerman’s “heart was in the right place” I get angrier and angrier and angrier…
