It’s not even October, but Christmas has come early, boys and girls. Martin Shkreli, the pharmadouche who bought Wu-Tang Clan’s one-of-a-kind album and then threatened to destroy it, is auctioning off a chance to punch him in the face.
“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,” he wrote on Twitter on Monday. It’s a touching cause, but that’s not really the point. All of the Internet has since been busy lacing up their boxing gloves.
According to Shkreli, bids so far have reached upwards of $78,000. (Is that you, Ghostface Killah?) It’s a hefty price tag for sure, but the pharmamonster is throwing in a bonus: The winning bidder can film the whole thing and forever relish the moment when his/her fist met Shkreli’s smarmy mug.
Alternately, if you’re a little strapped for cash, the self-described “world’s heel” is offering a cheaper option. “I updated my listing such that if you do not want to hit me, and instead have dinner with me, you may. $1,100 bid.” Not quite as enticing, let’s be honest.
