Martin Shkreli's latest contemplation will do little to rehab his “most hated man in America” image. The price-gouging pharmaceutical executive has reportedly considered breaking or concealing the Wu-Tang Clan album for which he paid a multi-million dollar sum.
Shkreli, the buyer of the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin for $2 million, is the subject of a new profile at Vice. Its author, Allie Conti, notes: "Shkreli says he vacillates between wanting to destroy the record and dreaming of installing it in some remote place so that people have to make a spiritual quest to listen."
Shkreli showed-off his expensive purchase for Vice, telling the title: "I'm not just the heel of the music world. I want to be the world's heel.” (a “heel is a pro-wrestling term for a bad guy")
