"Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli Auctioning Off Chance To Punch Him In The Face


Martin Shkreli, the "pharma bro" who made headlines last year after his company, Turing Pharmaceuticals, drastically raised the price of a toxoplasmosis drug, is auctioning off the chance to "punch/slap" him in the face in order to raise money for the son of a friend who recently passed away. 
Shkreli announced the rather unusual fundraiser on his Twitter account, and claimed that people are already bidding into the mid-five figures.
I will auction one slap/punch in the face to benefit my friend Mike who passed away & leaves behind a young son who survived cancer. DM bids
Shkreli then shifted the "auction" to a Giveforward, and said that everyone who donates will get a raffle ticket for a chance to punch him in the face. The largest donor will also get the opportunity to punch him in the face.
Donate now and a winning slapper/puncher will be selected. Not seeing much donation relative to media exposure. 
I'm matching the donation amount and each dollar donated gets you a raffle ticket to punch, slap, have, dinner, or even a date, with me.

Isn't capitalism wonderful?

Thank You Ms Rouselle and Townhall.

Why would Anyone want to punch Anyone in the medical field in the face?
