Karma is very real for Martin Shkreli 




Poor Martin Shkreli. The chief executive officer of Turing Pharmaceuticals and KaloBios Pharmaceuticals Inc is having one hell of a year. First he becomes the target of the American media and becomes the most hated man in the country for raising the price of life saving AIDS medication by 5000 percent.
Then he purchases the only copy of a legendary Wu-Tang Clan album for $2 Million, followed by the founder of Wu-Tang, RZA, openly speaking out against him just days later. Now Martin is beefing with RZA as the world watches and laughs.
But then today hits, in what some might call an early Christmas present to the world, Shkreli is arrested for fraud by the FBI. According to Reuters, the indictment says he made false representations to MSMB investors to draw in over 3 million in investments. To pay back investors Shkreli and an accomplice misappropriated 11 million in assets and sham investment deals. The truly sad part of the whole thing: now poor, poor Shkreli won't be able to see Star Wars tonight. Karma is real, America.. Be nice.
Just in case you think I'm being harsh, here is a quote from Shkreli when PDXhiphop.com asked him if he would consider sharing the Wu-Tang album with the world: " I’m not going to play it for no reason. If Taylor Swift wants to come over and suck my dick, I’ll play it for her" Classy all the way to prison.
