Martin Shkreli Just Got Robbed Of $15 Million And Literally Nobody Feels Even A Little Bad For Him

Remember Martin Shkreli? That little shit who tried to raise the price of an HIV-fighting drug 5,556% overnight?

Well, it turns out he’s finding out what it feels like being robbed right now, and he doesn’t really like it that much.

It all started when Shkreli offered to buy Kanye’s new album for ten million bucks.

And then expanded his offer to $15 million!

Which is when he finally got himself a deal with Kanye!

Or like, so he thought:

Turns out, the “savvy businessman” Martin Shkreli had trusted some random dude on bitcoin who had PROMISED that he worked for Kanye…

…and he had given DaQuan $15 million dollars, but didn’t actually get the real album at all.

A little bitter, Mr. Shkreli?

Maybe this is how people felt when you tried to charge them $750 for a $13 pill?

Karma is a bitch.

UPDATE: Some people have brought up the possibility that Martin’s “robbery” is just a huge fake ploy for attention. With his narcissistic personality, this isn’t impossible; I just can’t decide what is sadder: getting tricked out of $15 million or pretending to because nobody would pay attention to you otherwise.
