Infamous Turing Pharmaceuticals CEO Martin Shkreli was arrested this morning on fraud charges and the bizarre stories keep coming.
Aside from claiming that he bought the one and only copy of Wu-Tang Clan's The Wu—Once Upon a Time in Shaolin at auction for $2 million, Shkreli's been busy livestreaming on YouTube.
The CEO—who rose to notoriety in September when he raised the price of Daraprim, a drug that treats taxoplasmosis—by 5,000 percent, spent some time with teens from his former high school in the days leading up to his arrest.
Shkreli has maintained a strong presence on the internet with a Twitter account known for its hostility towards any critics, including presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, and an active Reddit user profile, even doing an Ask Me Anything session on the forum.
The livestream, which is still available on Shkreli's YouTube account, is mostly uneventful fotage of Shkreli sitting in front of his computer, pulling his hair, playing Dota or strumming his guitar. However, on December 14, Shkreli got into an interesting conversation with a 17-year-old girl from his hometown who claimed she went to his alma mater, Hunter College High School.
It's not clear what messages the girl wrote to the 32-year-old Shkreli that got the ball rolling but some of his responses seemed odd and inappropriate, with Gawker calling them "flirtatious."
"Yeah, not allowed to call you cute," he said with a laugh. "[I'll] get in trouble. Sorry!"
(Sidenote: During the conversation Shkreli attempts to buy a product online but the transation was declined by his financial institution. A sign of things to come?)
The livestream rambled on for hours during which Shkreli belittled callers, threatened to beat up high schoolers and tried to deflect accusations that he was walking a fine line by chatting with an underage girl.
