Martin Shkreli – the borderline diabolical pharma CEO who made waves in 2015 by raising the price of life-saving drugs from $13.40 to $750 a pill – got a sweet dose of karma over the weekend while he was visiting the University of California-Davis. While making his way into what was going to be a debate on campus, an unnamed hero fast-balled a wad of dog shit into his face and promptly called him a “piece of shit!”
Normally, you’d want to defend the guy who took a load of fecal matter to the chin, but this is Martin Shkreli we’re talking about. The guy who was banned from Twitter for (creepily) harassing a female journalist. The same guy who bought a one-of-a-kind Wu Tang album, only to troll the masses by not releasing it. And again, the guy who hiked the price of life-saving drugs by 4000% and then gave this smug testimony before congress. I honestly feel kind of bad for the dog shit. Needless to say, when the internet got their hands on the story, they had a one-sided response.
