Martin Shkreli has caught plenty of heat the past week after he jacked up the price of a commonly used, effective AIDS medication from $13.50 a pill to $750. The 32-year-old then defended himself on Twitter like an angsty teenager of fifteen years ago quoting Eminem’s “The Way I Am.”

Martin from the top rope with a INCREDIBLY topical elbow. Love it. I guarantee his iTunes playlist is chock-full of nothing but Em, Limp Bizkit, Marilyn Manson, and ICP. Juggalos for life, am I right, Marty?
I was all aboard #TeamShkreli as he’s such a cartoonish toolbag that I can’t not root for him. That was until this story caught my attention today, where a woman named Katie — who claims to be his ex-girlfriend — wrote a blog back on Tuesday and accused the pharmaceutical baron of offering her $10,000 to chow down on her box. She included the following Facebook chat from 2009.
I’m out on #TeamShkreli. Absolute psycho move. Hitting up an ex strictly to tongue punch her speedbag is one thing, but to offer her $10K to do so is just on another planet of lunacy. Like I can’t even comprehend that kind of crazy. Seriously, guys get this amped to guest lecture at Oregon State? I just assumed everyone went with the “I’ll get you after you get me” method but never actually follow through once they get their nut. With that said, I’ll just never understand having that kind of money, and the girl here is equally insane. Turning down a power-washing of the ol’ pink curtains and five figures and NOT having to reciprocate seems like a complete no brainer. I don’t care if Hitler offers that deal, you take it every time and queef in his fucking face. Missed opportunity, Katie..
