'People Are Dying, He's Laughing': Ghostface Killah Hits Back at Shkreli on FBN
Maria Bartiromo was joined this morning by Ghostface Killah, member of the rap group Wu-Tang Clan, who's been in a public war of words with notorious pharma CEO Martin Shkreli.
The ex-CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals triggered a firestorm of outrage last year when the company purchased an AIDS drug and raised the price by 5,000%.
He is now facing charges of securities fraud and pleaded the Fifth last week when called before Congress.
Shkreli's feud with the iconic rap group started when he paid $2 million in an auction for the only copy of the album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin.
He generated even more outrage when he announced that he wouldn't release it publicly and would instead "save it for a rainy day."
Ghostface Killah responded by calling Shkreli a "s***head."
Shkreli then taunted Ghostface Killah in a TMZ video, threatening to "erase [Ghostface] from history" by removing him from the album.
In an exclusive interview on Fox Business Network this morning, Ghostface said Shkreli showed "no respect for life" with what he did with the AIDS drug.
He said the YouTube video from Shkreli was "comedy" to him.
"I laughed at it. ... He can never erase me from history. I am history," said Ghostface.
He said he hopes Congress and the courts "get him," arguing that Shkreli still refuses to answer for what he did.
"I don't get what's in his mind," he added.
