The Photo That Made Front Pages Of Today’s Newspapers
The front pages of many newspapers all over the country have the photo that means so much to us given what this despicable and ruthless person has done this year.
It has been a busy week for Martin Shkreli, the flamboyant businessman at the center of the drug industry’s price-gouging scandals.
He said he would sharply increase the cost of a drug used to treat a potentially deadly parasitic infection. He called himself “the world’s most eligible bachelor” on Twitter and railed against critics in a live-streaming YouTube video. After reportedly paying $2 million for a rare Wu-Tang Clan album, he goaded a member of the hip-hop group to “show me some respect.”
Then, at 6 a.m. Thursday, F.B.I. agents arrested Mr. Shkreli, 32, at his Murray Hill apartment. He was arraigned in Federal District Court in Brooklyn on securities fraud and wire fraud charges.
Then today more news happened regarding his future.
Martin Shkreli has stepped down as CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals.
Turing’s main drug is Daraprim, the treatment for cancer and AIDS patients. Turing bought the drug in August and shortly after that, Shkreli announced he was raising the price of the drug by nearly 5,500% — from $13.50 a pill to $750.
May he be placed in the hottest region of hell.
