Martin Shkreli, the former Turing Pharmaceuticals CEO who famously increased the price of a pill used by HIV patients from $13.50 to $750, shared part of the secret Wu-Tang Clan album “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin” to the world over Periscope on Wednesday. Then he deleted the video.
Shkreli, a questionable human being who was arrested late last year over securities fraud allegations, purchased the sole copy of the album last year for $2 million, and then didn’t let anyone hear it.
