Pharma bro Martin Shkreli is actually auctioning off a chance to punch him in the face on Ebay, and people are already jumping at the opportunity.

He is infamous for purchasing Wu-Tang Clan’s rare album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin and threatening to destroy it, as well as raising the prices of anti-retro viral medication used in the treatment of HIV. Bids to slap him have already reached over $78,000.

“I will auction one slap/punch in the face to benefit my friend Mike who leaves behind a young son who survived cancer,” he posted to Twitter.

He has also offered to have dinner with bidders if they do not want to punch him, which began at $1,100.

Shkreli has been described in the past as the most hated man in the United States. He offered $10 million to Kanye West to buy his The Life Of Pablo album and not make it available to the public. He revealed his plan to buy the album in a series of tweets and claimed that the rapper delayed the release of the album because he was actually considering it.

The pharma bro claimed that West would end up making more money if he had chosen to take the offer, but the album did recover after a messy rollout. 

After offering to buy The Life Of Pablo, Shkreli was also arrested on securities fraud due to his unethical business practices. He also frequently battles with Ghostface Killah online.
