Pharma Bro Martin Shkreli Was Hit in the Face With Poo
If there’s anyone dealing with epic amounts of bad karma at the moment, it has to be Martin Shkreli. The dude deemed “the most hated man” earned his “pharma bro” rep by hiking up the price of lifesaving drug Daraprim by 5,000 percent — not to mention enraging fans when he basically held previously unreleased Wu Tang music for hostage.
Charged with fraud in 2015 and recently suspended from Twitter for his harassment of Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca, Martin is feeling the backlash yet again, this time after being hit in the face with POO. Ew! Also, bahaha!
Granted, this is beyond disgusting, but it seems like it’s the kind of sitch you face when you’re despised so vehemently (and justifiably) by so many.
Scheduled to speak at UC Davis on Friday night at an event he was co-headlining with Breitbart columnist Milo Yiannopoulos, Martin was welcomed to the venue by a large group of protestors who weren’t keen on his appearance. Though one person was certainly ready and waiting for him… with a handful of poop. Reportedly dog poo, not human, if you were curious.
While folks in the crowd call Shkreli a piece of, well, you know, one person wanted to make the insult more literal by whipping poo right at Martin’s face. Seriously, RIGHT IN HIS FACE!
Captured on camera, natch, it’s hard to believe the dude is still smiling after the fact. Was he aware of what he was hit with?! Yuck!
