New court filings allege he threatened to put a family on the streets. In the months since he first rose to infamy for raising the price of a live-saving drug 50-fold and then getting arrested for securities fraud, pharma bro Martin Shkreli has always maintained that he is misunderstood. He is not the “most hated man in America,” as he says he has been portrayed by the media. He is, on the contrary, a mogul, a hero, and a man so beloved that strangers stop him on the street to profess their support. A day before his arrest in December, however, Shkreli made the same claims about his own behavior. He openly bragged about threatening his former employee and his family in an interview with hip-hop Web site HipHopDX's editor in chief, Justine Hunte, asking if he had seen that Shkreli had “threatened that dude and his fucking kids.” “He had to call the police, that guy. . . . This is not a fucking act. I threatened that fucking guy and his fucking kids because he fucking took $3 million from me and he ended up paying me back,” he said. “I had two guys parked outside of his house for six months watching his every fucking move. I can get down.” Pharma Bro Martin Shkreli Is Even More Terrible than You Thought This is a child in a man's body.
