Martin Shkreli Wanted To Bail Out Bobby Shmurda (In Exchange For Something And Before He Himself Got Arrested)

Would you like some sweet, sweet irony? Pharma Douche Martin Shkreli did an interview with HipHopDX earlier this week in which he said that he really wants to bail out rapper Bobby Shmurda, who’s been in Rikers for over a year on attempted murder and gun charges. Said Shkreli:

“He deserves a fair trial. He deserves good lawyers. He doesn’t have good lawyers. His label is hanging him out to dry and so I have a conference call tomorrow morning with them (December 15). I’ll show up with $2 million bail money no fucking problem.”

Then, he also said:

“I’m a fan and I’m a business man. I’m not going to do this for free. [Laughs] He’s going to have to do something for me. I don’t know what that’s going to look like yet. He’s going to owe me one, obviously.”

Ha ha, yeah, cause God knows you can’t do something for someone just to be a cool guy or because you think it’s the right thing to do or anything. Ha ha!

Then, of course, Shkreli got his own ass arrested this morning on fraud charges. Oh, Shkreli; what a scamp. Guess he’s going to have to make his own bail first.
