The Internet offered a collective eye-roll over Juror B37's attempt to capitalize on her 15 minutes of fame, even before her identity became public knowledge.
But at least one Twitter user decided the juror shouldn't get to profit off of the painful details of the slaying of Trayvon Martin and the trial of his killer.
The Twitter user, identified as "Cocky McSwagsalot" and writing under the handle @MoreAndAgain, began gathering information to launch a campaign against the book Monday night.
!!!!! RT @miss_hellion: If we can't do anything else, we can stop the publishing of that book. See:Paula Deen— Cocky McSwagsalot (@MoreAndAgain) July 16, 2013
We just gotta find out her name and the publisher. But, we can stop that book.— Cocky McSwagsalot (@MoreAndAgain) July 16, 2013
It took about a half an hour from the idea until Twitter managed to find literary agent Sharlene Martin's Twitter handle and contact information, at 9:28 p.m.
This is the Google Doc with contact information for Sharlene Martin, the literary agent for juror B37. Contact her http://t.co/tvl7p5nRTm— Cocky McSwagsalot (@MoreAndAgain) July 16, 2013
Hey, @sharlenemartin, please drop juror B37. Do not help the person who let a murderer get away profit from this tragedy.— Cocky McSwagsalot (@MoreAndAgain) July 16, 2013
"McSwagsalot" said Martin got in touch with her privately on Change.org less than two hours later, at 11:15 p.m.
Martin was rescinding her offer to Juror B37, and announced the decision in a statement she made public at 12:59 a.m. Tuesday morning.
Soon after, the juror came out with a statement of her own, saying she "realized that the best direction for me to go is away from writing any sort of book and return instead to my life as it was before I was called to sit on this jury."
