However, the infamous exec isn't the only one who feels this way about Big Pharma. Outrageous price hikes and corporate greed have long plagued the industry, which is why lobbying firm Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) recently started a PR campaign to repair its image. To promote its GOBOLDLY campaign, PhRMA CEO Stephen Ubl made an appearance on CNBC where he went after Shkreli, saying, "much of the public discussion has been focused on some guy in a hoodie," an obvious jab at the casually dressed entrepreneur.
This seems to be what set Shkreli off, leading him to launch Pharma Skeletons and point the finger at Ubl himself, making declarations on the site like, "90% of you are the same as you, Mr. Ubl, slick guys in suits who make a living spewing bullshit."
He also added: "This website took me half an hour to make, just 'membering a few moments from the past," and "Let me remind you 90% of your members' CEOs could not hold a candle to me in scientific knowledge." If this whole pharma CEO thing doesn't work out (hint: it probably won't), Shkreli might have a career in writing. For, like, Jeff Ross or someone.
