EpiPen: When Martin Shkreli Calls A Pharma Company Out, You Know It Screwed Up

From Gizmodo:

Mylan pharmaceutical, the maker of the EpiPen—a portable epinephrine injector that can potentially save someone having a life-threatening allergic reaction—is being accused of raising the price of the product from around $100 in 2008 to $500 today. In all, that’s an increase of over 400 percent.

The increase is so high that Pharma Bro and person that hates Gawker Martin Shkreli, who for months was the most hated person on the internet after his company, Turing Pharmaceuticals, acquired a 62-year-old anti-parasitic drug and jacked the price from $13.50 a pill to $750, spoke out against the move.

“These guys are really vultures. What drives this company’s moral compass?” he told NBC News.
