He’s known as the Juice, but it ain’t because he’s O.J.
The Hasidic man (pictured, yesterday) who legally changed his name to Lemon Juice did it on a whim after he was razzed for his bizarre yellow-blond hair, his friends said yesterday.
“Some random kid called him ‘lemon juice,’ he liked it, so it stuck,” said Joel Neuwirth, 22, explaining the acidic moniker of his friend – who’s one of the three Hasidic brutes accused of secretly photographing an alleged sex-abuse victim in court.
Neuwirth said Juice, a 30-year-old unmarried bakery employee, was so in love with his new nickname that he wanted to make it all official.
Another friend said Lemon is so proud of it that when he settles down and finds a wife, her last name will also be Juice.
“He wants all his kids to have different vegetable and fruit names. He said the first would be ‘Orange,’ ” the friend said outside Brooklyn Supreme Court yesterday.
Juice, Yona Weissman and Joseph Fried are accused of snapping pictures of a teen as she testified against her alleged tormentor, Nechemya Weberman, and then posting the images online.
A Brooklyn judge extended a protective order against the three men, telling them to steer clear of the teen.
Juice’s sister said he supports the girl, not Weberman.
“There’s no way in hell he supports Mr. Weberman,” she said.
