YOU'RE PRO BONO
By Jason Underhill, tweets by Martin Shrekli.
I illustrated a particularly dark period of Vampiric Internet Clown and "Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli's Twitter Feed - while his company was being indicted for fraud (and after buying Wu Tang Clan's only copy of the group's Once Upon A Time In Shaolin for $2 million dollars), Shkreli reached out to rapper Kanye West via Twitter, offering to purchase his forthcoming Life of Pablo album for $15 million dollars, under the condition that the record may not be released to the general public. The catastrophe that follows Shkreli's outlandish and ill-conceived provocation is a portrait of contemporary narcissism and dim-witted DIY-publicity.
