Ghostface Killah Recruits Mom, Hillary Clinton to Combat Martin Shkreli: Watch
The battle of Ghostface Killah versus Martin Shkreli wages on -- and this time, the Killah family is getting into the mix.
The Wu-Tang Clan rapper recruited his mother and sister in a new round of insults aimed at Shkreli, the Turing Pharmaceuticals executive who bought a one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang album for $2 million after earning the title of most hated man in America for his part in raising the cost of AIDS drugs to $750 a pill. When Ghostface went on record to diss Shkreli and call him a "shithead," Shkreli responded with a video threatening to sic his "goons" on the rapper.
Now Ghostface has made a video of his own, which starts with him telling Shkreli, "You hilarious, man. You must be on Ritalin or something." He then goes on to call him "a fake ass super villain," "the man with the 12 year-old body," "a clown," a "carved out nose," and yells, "You a real killer, man! But you're a soft killer man. You're a baby, man."
He also shows a video-within-a-video comparing Shrekli to villains from the old Batman TV show and Pee-wee Herman.
But Ghostface doesn't leave it at that. Oh, no.
First, he shows a clip of Hillary Clinton at a campaign stop railing against the price-gouging by Shkreli's company.
"You heard Hillary," he says, adding, "This is about what you did to the American people and the people all over the world."
Then he pulls out all the stops and brings out his mother and his sister to chime in on the evil of Martin Shkreli. "You wicked boy!" his mom yells into the camera. "How was you raised?"
More taunting at "Marty" by the Killah family ensues, largely by his sister, who, descending into tears, pulls back her hair to reveal a scar she received from brain surgery while describing the hardships of not having health insurance.
Somehow through all of this, the women also keep mentioning Ghostface's line of "Wu Goo CBD Oil," bottles of which he has displayed on his kitchen counter as a kind of side-note promotion. Supposedly the oil combats cancer, anxiety and depression.
Shkreli might need some of that after watching this video, which you can see in full below:
