Florida Woman Will Pay $50,000 To 'Repeatedly Pummel' Martin Shkreli

One lucky Florida woman will get to punch 'pharma bro' Martin Shkreli in the face.

The former hedge fund manager and Turing Pharmaceutical CEO - infamous for raising the price of the anti-parasitic drug Daraprim from $13.50 per pill to $750 - announced earlier this week that he would be auctioning off the opportunity to punch him in the face (or go on a date with him). 

Twitter user @like_ether_ has opted for the former (is anyone surprised?)

Shkreli announced the winner of the auction - whose proceeds he says will go toward the young son of his late public relations manager, Mike Kulich - on Wednesday afternoon. Kulich died this weekend at age 29, and his son Tyler recently completed chemotherapy for acute lymphocytic leukemia.

Elon Musk's cannabis use got him in quite a bit of trouble recently, but instead of admitting that he hasn't exactly been a role model for upstanding consumers, Musk is now denying that he uses cannabis at all. The trouble for the Tesla CEO started back in August when Musk made what turned out to be a not-so-funny tweet about making the electric car company private at a $420 stock price - an obvious weed joke. But the Securities and Exchange Commission wasn't laughing.
