Martin Shkreli Asked About Wu-Tang Clan in Court, Pleads The Fifth

By now you're probably pretty familiar with Martin Shkreli, sometimes known as Pharmabro, the man made famous by jacking the price of Daraprim, an antiparisitc drug used to treat AIDS, up from $13.50 per pill to $750. In addition to being the worst, Shkreli is a pretty vocal music fan, and in December he dropped actual millions on a one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan record.

A few weeks after the purchase, Shkreli was arrested, he resigned as CEO of his company, Turing Pharmaceuticals and was fired as CEO of another company. When it rains it pours, right? Well, that's not the end. Shkreli and Wu-Tang don't have the best relationship, and that became abundantly clear at a congressional hearing earlier today.

Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, Shkreli pled the fifth for a myriad of questions, including one about Once Upon a Time in Shaolinhis multi-million dollar album. You can watch him not answer the question about around the 3:40 minute mark. At one point Representative Trey Gowdy exclaims, “I am stunned that a conversation about an album he purchase could possibly subject him to incrimination.”
