Martin Shkreli is one of the more maligned people you’ll find on the internet. Whether he’s selling prescription drugs for astronomical prices or attempting to buy that fabled and expensive Wu-Tang album, I think we can all agree on one thing: if you like Martin Shkreli, you’re probably at least somewhat of dick in some way, shape, or form. I don’t think that’s an outlandish statement for such a scumbag of a human.
But out of all the things Martin Shkreli has done, he’s officially taken his smug persona too far. He’s waged a war on brunch, the meal we can all agree – well, almost all of us – is the best. Yesterday on Twitter, he responded to one of his followers in regards to the popular weekend meal, and his takes were unsurprisingly douchey.
It’s a peculiar move to down talk brunch by saying that it’s “for women” and attempting to drop the proverbial mic by ending with “there. i said it.” Seems a little, oh, I don’t know… sexist? But hey, if this guy wants to call it “late breakfast” or “early lunch” instead of “brunch” or “blunch,” he can be my guest. When it’s all said and done, I’m pretty sure he’s at the bottom of the barrel of people you’d most want to brunch with.
I’ve reached out to him regarding his thoughts.
But no word back yet. Stay tuned. .
