Remember that Martin Shkreli guy? The former hedge fund manager who got all sorts of attention and hate after making a life-saving drug super unaffordable?
Well turns out dude knows to capitalize on all that hate, and is actually doing it for something good. He's currently auctioning off a chance to punch or slap in him in the face.... for charity.
I will auction one slap/punch in the face to benefit my friend Mike who passed away & leaves behind a young son who survived cancer. DM bids — Martin Shkreli (@MartinShkreli) September 26, 2016
As you can see in his tweet, Shkreli claims the money from the auction will go to the young son of a recently deceased friend.
Everyone who donates money will be entered into a raffle - and one lucky winner will get to punch or slap the shit out of him. Additionally, Shkreli claims he will match the winning donation dollar-for-dollar.
I'm matching the donation amount and each dollar donated gets you a raffle ticket to punch, slap, have, dinner, or even a date, with me. — Martin Shkreli (@MartinShkreli) September 28, 2016
He has also set up a donation page where everyone can donate money for the 5-year-old boy. If you'd like to donate, you can do so here.
Hate him or super hate him, you gotta admit this is pretty clever.
2019 update: His Twitter has been suspended + he's been sentenced to 7 years in federal prison.
