Woman pays $50K to punch Martin Shkreli in the face

NEW YORK (NEWS10) – Martin Shkreli has selected a woman, who paid $50,000, to slap/punch him in the face as a part of a benefit for his friend who died from cancer.

In a tweet, Shkreli says Katie will be able to repeatedly pummel him in the face.

Shkreli is matching Katie’s donation to help establish a college fund for his friend’s son.

The former hedge fund manager came under fire after buying a pharmaceutical company and jacked up the price of a life-saving drug more than fiftyfold. The drug is the only approved treatment for toxoplasmosis, a disease that mainly strikes pregnant women, cancer patients, and AIDS patients.

No word on when or where Katie will be able to “pummel him in the face.”
