    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.”

    This is a child in a man's body.

    Most corporate executives are not so openly psychopathic.

    Somebody should kill that sonofabitch!

    The crazies always kill the wrong people. So many rotten bastards deserve a bullet in the forehead yet it's the innocents who the mass-murderers attack.

    Nope. He's a fucking asshole in a mans body. That will soon, hopefully, be enjoying a lengthy stint in the grey bar Hilton.

    Prosecutors seek gag order for pharma bro Martin Shkreli after his courthouse rant
    Shkreli surprised journalists by talking to them at length unprompted; He called federal prosecutors in Brooklyn the "junior varsity"; He said one investor who testified against him wasn't a victim because she ended up making four times her money back; "Do I want to exonerate myself? Yes."
