There are a lot of people who would like to sock Martin Shkreli in the kisser, and now someone will get the chance.
The former pharmaceutical company CEO, who outraged millions by raising the price of an AIDS drug more than 5000%, is auctioning off the chance to punch him in the face for charity.
I will auction one slap/punch in the face to benefit my friend Mike who passed away & leaves behind a young son who survived cancer. DM bids

Shkreli went on Twitter Monday and announced one lucky (and wealthy) bidder could pay to punch or slap him in the face, with proceeds benefiting the family of Mike Kulich, his recently deceased PR rep.
Kulich, 29, died suddenly last week, leaving behind a fiancé and a young son who survived cancer.
Winner gets slap/punch/dinner or whatever they want. Runner up gets something, too. Raising money for my dead friend's son.

Shkreli says he’s already received bids for $25,500 and $78,000.
In December, the former head of Turing Pharmaceuticals, was arrested on securities fraud charges. His trial has been set for June 26, 2017.
Thots have been dealt with. Excessive force employed. Collateral damage unimaginable. pic.twitter.com/7eNvJe5WeV
