It Looks Like Martin Shkreli Is Selling His Wu-Tang Clan Album On eBay
The “Pharma Bro” bought the only copy of Once Upon A Time In Shaolin for $2 million in 2015.
Convicted fraudster Martin Shkreli appears to be selling the one-off Wu-Tang Clan album he owns on eBay. Shkreli doubled down on his status as "the most hated man in America," when he purchased the sole copy of Wu Tang's Once Upon A Time In Shaolin for $2 million in December 2015.
However, an eBay listing posted on September 5 by user martishkrel_7 lists the CD as being available for the relatively cut price of $74,500. Shkreli is pictured in the listing alongside a time stamped notice and a copy of the album.
Shkreli says he is selling the album following the "scorn" he has received since purchasing it two years ago. He states that he will donate half of the sale proceeds to medical research but that he may cancel the sale or "even break this album in frustration."
Shkreli's listing reads:
Shkreli's auction is due to end in nine days time on September 16. The former hedge fund manager's treatment of Wu-Tang Clan was among the many reasons potential jurors gave for their lack of impartiality during his recent trial.
