Of the many outrageous things revealed about Juror B37 since she and five other women acquitted George Zimmerman of murder, possibly the most outrageous was that she had already managed to land herself a literary agent for a future book deal.
The as-yet-unidentified Floridian and her "attorney husband" announced through literary agent Sharlene Martin plans to release a tell-all book about "the commitment it takes to serve and be sequestered on a jury in a highly publicized murder trial."
The juror's profiteering rubbed more than a few people the wrong way, but only one of them actually did something about it.
A young woman known for the time being only by her Twitter handles @MoreAndAgain and "Cocky McSwagsalot" launched a Twitter campaign last night, thirty minutes into Juror B37's CNN interview, during which she continued saying outrageous things like George Zimmerman's "heart was in the right place," and race did not play a role in the shooting.
She quickly followed that up with a Google Doc containing Martin's contact info, and encouraged others to join her protest.

Just a few hours after it started, @MoreAndAgain's campaign ended in triumph.
In a private message that has since been made public, Martin said she appreciated the woman's "passion for the death of Trayvon Martin," and has "decided to rescind my offer of representation in the exploration of a book based upon this case."

A short while later Juror B37 also had a "sudden change of heart," and released her own statement 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."
