Martin Shkreli Auctioning Off Chance to Punch Him in the Face
Pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli, who is one of the Internet's most hated men, is giving his haters a chance to get back at him... with a punch to the face.
The 33-year-old took to Twitter recently to announce that he will auction off an opportunity to punch him in the face.
The auction will benefit the soon-to-be 6-year-old son of Shkreli's friend/PR manager Mike Kulich, who passed away this weekend at age 29. Kulich's son, Tyler, recently finished chemotherapy for acute lymphocytic leukemia.
Shkreli indicated that would-be buyers should DM their bids to him.

It's unclear how much of the proceeds would benefit his friend's son, but so far, he claims to have received bids for $78,000 USD and $25,500 USD.
