Time for a bit of damage control!

On Monday Martin Shkreli — the former hedge fund manager and current CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals announced that he'd be raising the price of the recently purchased drug Daraprim — a medication that helps people with weakened immune system such as AIDS patients or pregnant women.

There was a huge public outcry after people learned he was raising the price from $13.50 to $750 per pill!

Well apparently he's had a change of heart as the CEO announced he would be lowering the price, saying the new cost would be figured out in the next few weeks.

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)!!!

jill connors arrested

So scary!

On Friday, it was reported that Married to Medicine star Jill Connors needed some medical attention after allegedly inflicting knife wounds to herself.

It's said that the blonde beauty got into a fight with her husband Dr. John Connors on August 13 after the doc saw text messages she'd received from another man.

Apparently, Conors threatened to leave his wife and take the kids if she was having an affair.

This threat seemed to have sent the reality TV star over the edge as she attacked the medical professional with a spoon, began ripping at his clothes and scratching him. However, we'd like to note that the starlet is 5'2" and 103 pounds.

Nonetheless, according to John his wife then took a knife and cut herself on her arm and chest.

He claims Jill yelled:

"He's cutting me!"

Whoa! The plastic surgeon proceeded to call 911 and upon the cops arrival Miz Conors admitted to attacking her husband.

Although, she did report that the knife wounds were cuts inflicted by John. Hmm, how inneresting.

Reportedly, the cops were hesitant to believe her story as she was arrested for domestic violence and cruelty to children since her kids were watching the whole scene. Oh no!

To make matters worse, Jill has since filed for divorce.

We hope Miz Connors gets the help she needs and that the couple are able to resolve their issues in a more peaceful manner in the future.

Fingers crossed.
