Well, it seems Martin Shrekli gets to see the light of day for a bit longer as the jurors to his trail walked out in a daring and bold move. All in the honor of the Wu-Tang Clan.
Yes, you heard me. Jurors are supposed to be impartial when it comes to the justice system in America.
But it seems these jurors had something they really needed to say. And according to the court transcript it went a little something like this…
Court: All right. I’m going to excuse you. Juror Number 59, come on up.
Juror No 59: Your Honour, totally he is guilty and in no way can I let him slide out of anything because –
Court: OK. Is that your attitude toward anyone charged with a crime who has not been proven guilty?
59: It’s my attitude toward his entire demeanour, what he has done to people.
Court: All right. We are going to excuse you, sir.
59: And he disrespected the Wu-Tang Clan.
Then came another one.
Now enter Juror No. 144…
Court: Juror Number 144, tell us what you have heard.
144: I heard through the news of how the defendant changed the price of a pill by up-selling it. I heard he bought an album from the Wu-Tang Clan for a million dollars.
Court: The question is, have you heard anything that would affect your ability to decide this case with an open mind? Can you do that?
144: I don’t think I can because he kind of looks like a dick.
Wu-Tang Clan definitely aint nuthin to fuck with. And these jurors just set the record straight.
For those who don’t know who Martin Shkreli is, well he is the infamous CEO of a drug company that marked up life saving drugs for AIDs patients by up to 5000%…

And after purchasing the one and ONLY copy of Wu-Tang’s double album ‘Once Upon A Time in Shaolin’ in 2015 which was not supposed to be release for 88 years. Martin Shkreli eventually leaked several songs, after promising to do so if Trump won the Presidential race.
If that doesn’t piss you off, yes, he is a Trump supporter. Enough said.
Well on the bright side, Martin Shkreli faces up to 3 counts of Fraud and is looking at 20 years in prison.
Karma is definitely a bitch.
