Found this one via Joe. My. God.: Pharma Bro begs the courts for his freedom. From the article:
Former pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli apologized Tuesday for offering his Facebook followers $5,000 to pull a hair from Hillary Clinton’s head, saying it was an “awkward attempt at humor or satire” and not a real threat.
Basically, you told a joke that no one found funny. Sucks to be you. It gets better:
Shkreli’s initial response to the government motion was profanity and scorn. “Come at me with you [sic] hardest because I haven’t seen anything impressive yet,” he wrote on his Facebook page last week. But by the eve of a hearing that will determine if he actually does go to jail, his tone changed.
So at first, you were all “Come at me, bro!” and the government said, “Alright, dude!” so you kinda peed yourself and said, “But I was just kidding!” Am I in the neighborhood here or even a little bit close? Dude, you already look like a rampaging douche. Why don’t you quit while you’re ahead? Or is that too much to ask?
I think I may have answered my own question here. Oh and dear old Pharma Bro? Yep, he’s going back to jail. Can’t say that I feel bad for the guy. Actually, it couldn’t have happened to a more deserving asswad.
