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.

After a battery of tests and misdiagnoses, I was finally diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease twelve years ago, and thus began a long battle with trial-and-error medical treatments. I changed my diet several times, even though my doctors didn’t seem confident it would change much (it didn’t), went to physical therapy for pain-related issues, and took so many different pharmaceuticals I can’t even begin to recall each and every one. My days were foggy due to side effects from pharmaceuticals, such as steroids, that made me feel worse than I did before I even took them.

Can we see some ID please?
