Happy Thursday! FBI Arrests Wall Street Pharmadouche Martin Shkreli

Pharmadouche Martin Shkreli — the guy who bought a life-saving drug to treat newborns and HIV patients and raised the price from $1,130 to $63,000 (and later said he “should’ve raised prices higher” — has been arrested by the FBI for securities fraud. The actual charges are complicated and irrelevant — he illegally took stock from one company and used it to pay off debts in an unrelated business — what’s important here is that Karma finally caught up to that asshole, who also used his fortune to drop $2 mil for a Wu-Tang Clan album.

The better news is that, with Shkreli potentially in prison, the Wu-Tang clan will have an easier time enforcing the clause in the sell of their album, which allows them to “legally plan and attempt to execute one (1) heist or caper to steal back Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, which, if successful, would return all ownership rights to the seller.”

The one catch, however, is that “said heist or caper can only be undertaken by currently active members of the Wu-Tang Clan and/or actor Bill Murray.” I hope Bill Murray is checking his messages.

Martin Shkreli is arrested on the same day Star Wars is released? Did someone move Christmas up a week?
