Don’t Slip In The Schadenfreude: Martin Shkreli Fired From 2nd CEO Gig

It news that will surprise absolutely no one, Martin Shkreli has been fired from his role as CEO of KalaBios Pharmaceuticals.

The publicly listed company – which ceased trading about 10 minutes after Shrekli was arrested by the FBI on fraud charges – announced the news in a statement today.

“On December 17, 2015 [the same day he was arrested], Martin Shkreli was terminated as Chief Executive Officer of the Company and resigned from his position as a member of the board of directors,” they said.

Shkreli has been almost unanimously reviled since he hiked the price of a life-saving HIV drug produced by a different drug company he founded, Turing Pharmaceuticals, from $13.50 per pill to $750 per pill overnight. He resigned as its CEO on Friday, but has yet to make it LinkedIn official:

In other, less schadenfreude-inducing news, Shkreli has now regained control of his Twitter account and deleted every tweet the hacker posted (screenshots HERE).
