Martin Shkreli burst on the scene as a securities savant who was working on Wall Street at 17, set up his own hedge fund at 23, and launched the biotech company Retrophin Inc. after teaching himself biology.
But he became famous for much more. He raised the price of life saving infection fighting drug Daraprim by 5000%, from $13 a pill to $750 a pill.
Then he purchased a one-of-a-kind Wu Tang Clan album for $2 million dollars. This led to a public feud with Clan member Ghostface Killah
Now Martin has been convicted of defrauding several hedge funds of more than $10 million. He has been sentenced to 7-15 years behind bars.
Even after his conviction, Martin is still being a piece of shit
Oh well, he will have a decade of free time to work on his attitude. And his baking skills.
Hey Martin, why don’t you go bake me some muffins! You muffin baker!
