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.

CEO Douche Who Jacked Up the Price of HIV/Cancer Drug is More Evil Than We Thought

Martin Shkreli, the CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals who infamously purchased the rights to a life-saving cancer and HIV medication before increasing the price by more than 5,000%, has a shady history involving stalking a colleague’s family and harassing them by promising to make them all, including their four children, homeless.

Shkreli, the then-CEO and founder of biopharmaceutical company Retrophin, harassed now-former colleague Timothy Pierotti and his family after a business deal gone bad. According to a court affidavit, Pierotti claimed Shkreli hacked into his AOL, Gmail, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts and harassed his family members over social media. In 2013, Shkreli also allegedly wrote a letter to Pierotti’s wife saying, “I hope to see you and your four children homeless and will do whatever I can to assure this.”
