At this point it’s safe to say Pharma douche Martin Shkreli is universally disliked. In fact, he might be the most hated man in America (If you’re not already excruciatingly familiar with his story, this Vanity Fair profile is a good read).
We experienced a small collective victory when this human turd was arrested for securities fraud yesterday, but like most rich white people, he only saw the inside of a jail cell for a few hours and is now out on bail. He may no longer be the CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals (poor, poor Alan Turing, whose good name will forever be linked to this asshole), but he’s back home where he’s free to listen to his Wu Tang record and make terrible livestreams at his leisure. He’s also free to resume tweeting abhorrent, irritating and awful things, like this:
Glad to be home. Thanks for the support.

I reckon that’s meant to be sarcasm, as in the day or so Shkreli spent in jail, we as a nation were united by our utter hatred for him. Sure, he has the rare die-hard supporter, but so did Charles Manson.
You’ve got to hand it to the guy, just when we think we couldn’t possibly hate him more, he manages to reach new levels of pure douchery.
