Martin Shkreli is probably one of the most hated men on the internet.
It began when the former Pharmaceutical CEO decided to jack up the price of a life-saving toxoplasmosis drug, used by pregnant women and people with HIV, from $13.50 to $750.
He was also the guy that bought that one of a kind Wu-Tang Clan album.
Now it seems that Shkreli has one of 2017’s hottest tickets: An invite to Donald Trump’s inauguration. Be he also has a problem, he can’t find a date.
He appears to have DM’d Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca, inviting her to be his plus one.
Duca posted a screenshot of his message, and along with her reply:
I would rather eat my own organs
Savage. And his comeback?
Well, start with your heart. what a cold you know what!
So he then, obviously, asked out fitness star Jen Selter.
And then he moved onto Observer writer Dana Schwartz.
Sorry I already made really fun plans to gnaw off all of my limbs.
Shkreli then explained himself.
I'm asking the most liberal most trumpy journalists out. It's a joke. It's really really funny. I'm the best.
It seems he may have found someone at last.
Not weird at all.
