Pharma bro Martin Shkreli lied about Bitcoin, so someone spent his real money on lube

If karma is a real thing, Martin Shkreli just made a lump sum payment on his sins in the form of water-based sexual lubricant.

The chain of events started with a claim that Shkreli had purchased the exclusive rights Kanye West’s new album, “The Life of Pablo” for $15 million. In and of itself, this is believable, after all he had previously purchased exclusive rights to a previously unreleased Wu Tang Clan album, “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin.”

We’ll let Shkrelli’s sweary tweets tell you how it all went down.

Nothing to see here, just an extremely bright guy meeting a dude that claims to be friends with Kanye and then sending him $15 million in bitcoin. No big deal, right?
