Four jurors in the George Zimmerman second-degree murder trial are trying to disown infamous Juror B37 after she made questionable statements during an extensive, exclusive interview on CNN.

Juror B37, who had and quickly lost her bid for a tell-all book deal about her experience during the Zimmerman trial, admitted that she identified with the former neighborhood watch volunteer who murdered Trayvon Martin, 17, inside a gated community in Sanford, Fla., in February 2012. She also said she would feel comfortable having Zimmerman as a neighborhood watchman in her community and referred to Trayvon Martin as a “boy of color.” She made racially offensive statements about controversial witness Rachel Jeantel and people like her.

When the other jurors got hold of what Juror B37 said, the four immediately drafted a collective statement resoundingly denouncing their fellow juror and articulating resentment that she chose to position herself as speaking on their behalf.

However, some in the public and social media said, “Hold up. Not so fast,” that they ultimately felt the same way as Juror B37 did.

Look at the Twitter reactions to Zimmerman jurors separating themselves from Juror B-37.

@andersoncooper The next juror interviewed please ask if TM had the right to defend himself just as B37 thought GZ did.

First of all, Juror B37 should keep her mouth shut. Four others claimed not to be public officials, yet she turned herself into one.

B37 was bully who forced not guilty verdict. 4 others don’t want her to speak for them. Last Juror clearly wanted to convict! #moretocome

The #ZimmermanJurors can ‘distance themselves’ from #B37 all they want. They ALL agreed to the not-guilty verdict. Damage is done. #fools
