“She started getting threats on social media and through e-mails [saying] that she is a snitch and how could she do that,” Juror No. 2’s younger sister told The Post on Thursday. “She is scared.”
“She deactivated her social media and left three days ago,” said the juror’s sister, who answered the door of the juror’s home and declined to give her name. “She thought if she spoke once, everyone would leave her alone.”
The juror has been refusing calls from everybody in recent days — even own boyfriend — while she hunkers down, waiting for reaction to the verdict to “calm down,” her sister said.
The sister could not say what, other than being called a “snitch,” was contained in the threats or what the trolls’ motivations were.
The juror was one of the 12 men and women who found the disgraced movie mogul guilty of rape in the third degree against Jessica Mann, and guilty of a criminal sex act in the first degree against Miriam Haley Monday in a huge win for the #MeToo movement.
On Tuesday, the juror told “Inside Edition” — appearing on camera but without using her name — that she hopes the guilty verdict gives victims closure.
“Tensions were very high. Everyone was nervous,” she said of the deliberation. “All I can say is that the temperature in the room was very high.”
She also described being disgusted by seeing naked photos of Weinstein that were entered into evidence.
“I tried to block it out,” she told the TV news magazine.
“It was presented to us, so it wasn’t something that we could have blocked out — but it’s hard not to make a face.”
She said that her hands were sweating after she and the rest of the jury reached the verdict.
“I felt like my heart was literally going to pop out of my chest. It was just, I wouldn’t say nerve-wracking, but it was just, ‘this is it, this is the moment,’” she said.
She added that she hopes the verdict helps the victims move forward.
“Every last woman that took the stand, I wish them the best. I hope this is now a chapter that they can close and move forward with their lives now,” she said.
It wasn’t clear when the juror planned to return home. Other relatives declined to comment.
Weinstein, 67, is facing a sentence of five to 29 years.
