When raising the price of a lifesaving drug from $13.50 to $750 -- and being hit with unrelated fraud charges for a Ponzi-like scheme -- isn't enough to garner (negative) attention from the public, the logical next step is to harass a reporter on Twitter. At least, that seems to be the plan of notorious pharma bro Martin Shkreli, the former Turing Pharmaceuticals CEO known as much for his cynical worldview as he is for his outspoken social media presence.
Oh, and don't forget this is the guy who bought the only copy of a Wu-Tang Clan album for a mere $2 million. Seems like a chill dude.
So how does a man who has everything spend his free time? By creepily harassing a reporter on Twitter, of course! Shkreli turned his sights on reporter Lauren Duca, who became well-known after her Teen Vogue article "Trump Is Gaslighting America" went viral. In a screenshot posted to Twitter, Shkreli, a vocal Trump supporter, asked Duca if she wanted to accompany him to the inauguration.
