Hedge Funder Buys Rights To AIDS Medication & Immediately Raises The Price From $13.50 To $750 Per Pill!

no title

This seems pretty deplorable to us…

Martin Shkreli is a former hedge fund manager who is currently the CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals, but he may be even more infamous now not for his success in business, but rather his shady way of treating his patients.

That's because the 32-year-old just purchased the rights to a 62-year-old drug called Daraprim and immediately gouged the price from $13.50 a pill to an unbelievable $750!

That's over a 5000% jump overnight!

What makes the price fluctuation even more despicable is that the people who rely on Daraprim are AIDS patients and infants, so Martin is hurting people who are already struggling.

The big pharma businessman has spoken up for himself after the change, saying that the medical world is in need of a better version of the drug — even though AIDS doctors have claimed otherwise — and said he purchased the rights to Daraprim in order to help society.

We get that he may have needed to raise the price a little in order to turn some sort of a profit… but how could multiplying the price by over 55 times be at all justifiable?!

Ch-ch-check out Martin's attempt to defend himself Monday on CNBC (below)!!!

Fired PR Exec Justine Sacco Says She 'Really Suffered' After Unfunny AIDS Tweet… And Still Defends It!

Filed under: Sad SadTwitterBookzGIFs

Hmm… we wonder if she ever thought about how much people with AIDS, as well as their friends and family have really suffered.

You may remember Justine Sacco. She's the former IAC PR exec who was on her way to a vacation in South Africa last December, and tweeted:

"Going to Africa. Hope I don't get AIDS. Just kidding! I'm white."

Well, she was promptly fired, and has been featured in a new book, called So You've Been Publicly Shamed, authored by Jon Ronson. The author is sympathetic with Sacco, but it doesn't make a ton of sense.

Especially considering she defends her horrible 'joke.'

In her section of the book, Justine explains

Jewel Got Bejeweled For Elton John’s AIDS Benefit — Except She Sheerly Failed With Netting Over Her Knockout Cleavage & Black Panties Underneath!

Filed under: Fashion SmashionElton JohnJewelNew YorkRed CarpetCharityBoobs

Wow, Jewel REALLY put her cleavage out there at Elton John's charity event!

Holy mammaries!!

Jewel attended the Elton John AIDS Foundation Benefit in New York on Tuesday, and didn't even bother to hide her rockin' bod!

The sexy singer wore a partially sheer, floor-length, bejeweled gown that hugged her curves and displayed her cleavage just like it was supposed to.

And not only was there a totally see-through area of fabric right at her chest, the rest of her gown was just transparent enough that you could see her black panties beneath!

Hmm, think the 40-year-old mother's split with husband Ty Murray after 6 years has anything to do with this risqué look??

Regardless, she looks HAWT!

Shine bright like the Jewel that you are, lady!!

Worried About Ebola?? AIDS Is Everywhere — Even 'On Towels' — In Kenya, According To Televangelist Pat Robertson! Here's Your Daily Dose Of WTF!

Filed under: TV NewsHealthSickScary!Crazzzzy

no title

When it comes to HIV/AIDS, ignorance is almost just as dangerous as the disease itself.

So when a person wrote in to The 700 Club looking for travel advice, what Pat Robertson told them falls into that category.

A person wrote about how they were planning on taking a mission trip to Kenya, but their family was worried about their health because of Ebola.

Pat was pretty confident that no, this person isn't putting themselves at risk of getting Ebola. But AIDS, yeah almost definitely going to get AIDS.
