A couple of weeks ago, we brought you news that the one of a kind Wu Tang Clan record ‘Once Upon A Time In Shaolin’ had been bought for $2million from its storage space in a super secure hotel in Morocco.
At the time, RZA was under the impression that the buyer wished to remain anonymous and Paddle 8 – the auction company that brokered the deal – didn’t reveal his identity either. But guess what? It turns out that the buyer was just waiting a couple of weeks for the reveal, because the buyer was none other than the biggest douchebag on the whole entire planet and wanted to milk it for ultimate annoyance factor.
Hats off to this guy:
Yes, that’s right it’s Martin Shkreli. If somehow you’ve managed to miss encountering him in the last couple of months, then he’s the completely despicable human being that bought the rights to AIDS drug Daraprim and then raised the price by 5000% overnight, making it unaffordable for many with the disease. Of course, he did renege on it after the internet backlash, but ultimately did a U turn on that too and pretty much went back to his original plan, the evil fuck.
Anyway, being the hip hedge fund manager he is, Shkreli of course wanted to own the only copy of a Wu Tang Record so just went out there and bought it for a cool $2million. Swell. This might be acceptable if he liked them, but he hasn’t even bothered listening to the record yet and only bought it for the (presumably) super cool status it grants him. In fact, he’s not a big fan at all and admits to only really likes one of their songs: C.R.E.A.M. – Cash Rules Everything Around Me.
P.S. Shrkeli also revealed that he’s also bout Kurt Cobain’s VISA card, for the sole purpose of getting it out to pay for dinner when he’s with his friends (business colleagues, he obviously doesn’t have any real friends) so they collectively lose their shit.
Is it possible to hate this guy anymore?!
