"Don't make faces at the witness. I can see you. If it happens again, you're out."

In the first amendment trial of Douglass Mackey in the federal Eastern District Court of New York, Judge Ann Donnelly excused the jurors from the courtroom on day three to address a journalist who had been covering the proceedings, Luke O'Brien.

O'Brien had been covering the trial since before it began, going so far as to make a witness for the defense feel intimidated by his questioning when he asked if the witness' employer knew that he was testifying on behalf of Mackey. That witness withdrew from the trial. The defense asked for a two-week delay, but that wasn't granted.

Judge Donnelly dismissed jurors for five minutes, and removed the witness from the box, as well. Donnelly then addressed O'Brien.

"So this is a public courtroom," she said, "and of course people are all welcome to observe the proceedings. What you cannot do, which I've been observing from up here, is to try to either get the witness' attention or whatever is going on. It's got to stop. You have to sit up straight. Don't make faces at the witness. I can see you. If it happens again, you're out."
Mackey was a controversial figure on social media in the lead-up to the 2016 election and is on trial for posting a meme encouraging people to vote via text message. His was not the only meme on the subject, and memes of this nature were posted by both supporters of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. But Mackey, likely because so many of his "sh*t posts" were incendiary, is facing trial.
