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.

His decision to flip flop isn't surprising; he faced an understandably vicious backlash after the 5500% increase was reported. He said:

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.

To be fair, waiting in a long pharmacy line can make anyone pissed off.

However, we don't think that's the ONLY reason for Scott Disick's scowl!

Last Tuesday, the troubled reality TV star was seen at a CVS in Long Island, NY.

The 32-year-old — who is from New York — was waiting in line to pick up a prescription.

As he was waiting, a peppy, young fan asked the KUWTK personality to take a photo. While he said yes, he didn't look too pleased.

His frown was only accentuated by his

Jim Carrey has no problem putting our government on blast!

On Tuesday, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed one of the strictest vaccination programs in the country.

For doing so, the Dumb & Dumber star is calling the governor a "corporate fascist" because he believes there is a link between vaccines and autism!

The legislation would require children in daycares and schools to be immunized no matter what, with the exception of serious medical reasons. This bill would take power away from the parents decision on if they wanted their child vaccinated or not.

Only two states — Mississippi and West Virginia — are this strict in enforcing that no child is immune to the immunization process.

Carrey took to Twitter to warn his followers about the dangerous bill, and the dangers of injecting thimerosal, writing:
