America’s most hated villain Martin Shkreli is currently auctioning off a chance to punch him in the face – for charity.

The former hedge fund manager that came to notoriety after making a life-saving drug virtually unaffordable announced the offer via Twitter, inviting interested parties to contact him with their bids.

Shkreli claims the money from the auction will go to the young son of a recently deceased friend of his.

Shkreli has also set up a donation page where everyone can donate money for the 5-year-old boy. You can show your support here.

Additionally, Shkreli claims he will match the winning donation dollar-for-dollar.
