Pharma Dude’s Twitter Was Hacked And It’s Hilarious

This is so funny. It couldn't have happened to a worse guy. By that, I mean there are no worse guys.

At Groopspeak, we are certainly not advocates of hackers, but when “Pharma Dude,” Martin Shkreli’s Twitter account was obviously hacked, well, it’s hard to deny the feeling of schottenfreude. After all, it couldn’t have happened to a less nice guy.

Shkreli’s handle, at least for the moment, has been changed to “Martin The God,” and in one tweet, he proclaims that “I am now a god.”

In others, he appears a bit more humble:

In another, he seems to acknowledge his fate:

Shkreli might be the most hated man in America after raising the cost of a commonly used AIDS drug by 5,000 percent, but that’s not why he’s in trouble. He was arrested last week for stealing money from rich people – the rich don’t get in trouble in this country for stealing from the poor.

Still, Shkreli likens himself to Robin Hood (not God). “I’m like Robin Hood,” he continues. “I’m taking Walmart’s money and doing research for diseases no one cares about,” insisting that people who don’t have insurance would only pay $1.00 for his overpriced pills.

Even with his ego and his precarious legal situation, it’s tough to imagine that Shkreli is behind the weird tweets, although it’s also tough to imagine why they are still up. The internet being what it is, though, here’s a screen grab of them all.
