It hasn’t been a good week for former Turing CEO Martin Shkreli. After being arrested for securities fraud a few days ago, Shkreli says his Twitter account, as well as email and mobile phone accounts have been hacked.
One of the latest tweets from Shkreli’s account reads, “I am now a god,” and his handle has been changed too.
Another tweet from the past few hours references the Wu-Tang Clan album Shkreli purchased for $2 million (it’s the only copy made available to the public).
Craig Stevens, a spokesman for Shkreli, told Reuters, “It was hacked. We have been working with Twitter to get it fixed.”
As the CEO of pharma company Turing, Shkreli angered the world by raising the price of Daraprim — a drug that’s meant to treat AIDS — from $13.50 to $750. It seems like hackers now want to give him a taste of his own medicine.
