Martin Shkreli Says Cancer Pill Scandal Got Him a Lot of Girls in Reddit AMA


The infamous founder and CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals, Martin Shkreli, recently participated in an “Ask Me Anything” Q&A on Reddit this past weekend.

Shkreli, 32, became one of the most despised CEOs in America after his company bought out and raised the price of a drug used for the treatment of HIV and cancer from $13.50 to $750 overnight. According to his AMA, however, his experience as the most hated man in America has got him a lot of girls.


The session lasted for several hours with users posting thousands of comments and questions for the hedge fund manager, mainly questioning his rationale for increasing the price of the drug and addressed topics regarding the PR fallout that followed.  

Here are the gems among his responses:
