Pharma Bro and Wu-Tang Disrespector Martin Shkreli Sent to Jail Over Hillary Clinton Post

Martin Shkreli, the pharma exec that gleefully raised the price of an AIDS drug by 5,000% overnight and owner of the one-copy-only Wu-Tang Clan album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, is heading for jail.

He was already in trouble over fraud allegations involving a hedge fund. But he’s back in the brig after a Facebook post in which he offered a $5,000 bounty on a single strand of Hillary Clinton’s hair.

“A joke!” he claimed. But the court would have none of it, especially in light of comments made online about two other women.
