How can this man sleep at night?

AIDS-drugs

We are saddened and horrified by Martin Shkreli. From the Gawker article (emphasis ours):

“…after raising the cost of a life-saving pill by 5,000 percent, Turing CEO Martin Shkreli is loudly telling the world to fuck off.

Only a bad guy from Captain Planet could come up with a more brazenly amoral business scheme: Turing Pharmaceuticals purchased the rights to Daraprim, a 62-year-old drug used to treat toxoplasmosis, a parasitic affliction that affects tens of millions in the U.S. alone. Daraprim is particularly important for AIDS and cancer patients, whose weakened immune systems are ravaged by toxoplasmosis. Shkreli has now directly, intentionally switched the drug from affordable to insanely out of reach…”

We are also disgusted that the name of Alan Turing could be in any way associated with Turing Pharmaceuticals, Shkreli’s blood soaked, predatory drug company.
