To be the most hated man in the US in 2017 is an impressive feat. But "Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli takes the cake after price gouging medication for AIDs/HIV patients by raising prices from $13.5 to $750 a pill, harassing journalist via Twitter and purchasing the only Wu-Tang Clan's album for $2million before saying he wanted to destroy the album. Oh and don’t forget securities fraud, which he’s on trial for. Except the judge is having a hard time finding 12 jurors for a speedy and fair trial. The judge dismissed 130 jurors who at least strongly disliked Shkreli. I mean, jurors' favorite words were "evil," "snake," and "greed”  to describe him.
