Martin Shkreli's excellent week continues with a Twitter hacking

One should never take pleasure from the struggles of others - but it's desperately hard not to when the man in question is Martin Shkreli.

The man who ensured global hatred after raising the price of a drug used for treating AIDS from $13.50 to $750 over night was arrested for fraud by the FBI last week - if found guilty, he faces 20 years in jail and the loss of much of his fortune.

Continuing the proud tradition of kicking a man while he's down, his Twitter account has seemingly been hacked. Whoever is responsible opened up with the 'classic' line that Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy posted on Facebook back in 2011, "chat shit, get banged" before unleashing a stream of tweets - including one referencing the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album, Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, that Shkreli paid $2m for. He also changed his display name to 'Martin The God'.

At the time of writing, all of the tweets are still live.

Poor Martin. Still, at least his pinned tweet is still the one proclaiming his innocence. Let the courts decide, eh?
