‘Most hated man in America,’ who calls himself ‘the most eligible bachelor in the world,’ arrested on fraud charges
Martin Shkreli, 32, a hedge fund manager from New York who famously raised the price of a lifesaving drug 5,000%, was arrested Thursday for securities fraud.
Shkreli raised the price of a medicine called Daraprim, which helps cancer and AIDS patients, from $13.50 a pill to $750 per pill, making him a lightning rod for pharmaceutical company greed.
Shkreli claimed on Twitter to be the “world’s most eligible bachelor,” and that he gets 100-200 offers for dates at a time. He says that if someone wants to meet him, they have to be a shareholder in his company.
Shkreli often live streams his everyday life on YouTube. Here’s the live stream — take a look, he may be on:
