This is a low blow, even for “Pharma Bro.”
Shkreli even posted a video (above) on his Twitter page that showed him yelling at the Democratic presidential candidate: “Are you alive? Do you need Pharma Bro’s help?”
At least he got the caption right: “Me Yelling Stupid Stuff At Hillary.”
According to the New York Daily News, Shkreli yelled in his Periscoped performance as well:
Shkreli also told the News that Chelsea Clinton’s apartment “is an advanced medical facility” and that the former secretary of state presumably entered the building “in some kind of stretcher. ... That’s my imagination at work.”
Late last month, he had apologized for “rushing to judgment” over a completely false assessment of Clinton’s health ― now this.
Shkreli sure loves the attention. Just last week he picked Twitter fights with “Captain America” actor Chris Evans and comedian Patton Oswalt. But let’s consider the source. Shkreli, the former pharmaceutical CEO, faces fraud charges and is the guy whose company raised the price of an antiparasitic drug often used to treat HIV patients by more than 5,000 percent.
This story has been updated to clarify the type of drug whose price was raised.
