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.
San Diego-based Imprimis Pharmaceuticals has created an alternative drug to Daraprim, the drug used to treat HIV and cancer patients whose rights were bought by Martin Shkreli’s Turing Pharmaceuticals and subsequently raised from $13.50 per pill to $750.

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.”
