The notorious pharma bro Shkreli, who is facing serious federal securities fraud charges, began blocking reporters who followed him on Twitter in recent days on the heels of his most recent court hearing. Shkreli sniffed that reporters weren't covering him "responsibly."
The media blocked from viewing Shkreli's free-wheeling Twitter stream included this reporter and other journalists at CNBC.
Shkreli previously had reveled in engaging in back and forth with reporters on Twitter, as he did on Friday when he tweeted "when I see you, imma slap you" at one Bloomberg journalist who dared to ask him for comment on a new criminal count that prosecutors lodged against him that day.
On Wednesday, the same day he announced his media ban, Shkreli addressed news of a new musical about the oft-ousted pharmaceutical CEO that is set to premiere next month in New York City, entitled: "Martin Shkreli's Game: How Bill Murray Joined the Wu-Tang Clan."
