    Fantastic. Hope they started the investigation when he went on all the news networks acting like a dick. He wanted fame and now he's got it. Put him in the same cell with Jared F.

    Probably the other way around. He probably felt the investigation finishing up. When the drug publicity went off, he was painting himself as an "unpopular" guy. Probably that is going to be part of his defense: Look, I know people don't like me, but, I'm just being a capitalist like Trump and all the other capitalists. They went after me because I'm not likable. Is that a crime?

    The charges have nothing to do with him raising the price on the HIV drug and are all from things he did well before that. This guy will get no sympathy from anyone. He's basically public enemy #1 and it wouldn't surprise me if his own mother and father testified at his trial of how much a horrible person he is :)

    I don't think many will weep for him.

    Cheering is much more likely.

    He just did a livestream on Youtube where he hinted at sharing music from the new Wu-Tang album he just purchased exclusive rights to. It was the most lonely and depressing livestream I have ever watched of anything.

    Not likely. The bastard is rich, which means he can easily afford a luxury pay to stay prison cell. Hail, it's nicer (and cleaner) than some hotels I've visited.o_O

    Nah, he's rich. You shouldn't wish that on others anyways.

    I guess the rapper Bobby Shmurda can forget about this guy bailing him out as planned. The timing is almost too perfect.

    i'd photoshop a bullseye over his face, but i'd probably get arrested for doing so.

    Rich guy getting arrested for something he thought was covered up. He was led away screaming '"It’s not fair! They promised me they fixed it! It’s not my fault!”"

    How stupid is this guy? He basically begged for the wrong kind of intervention by way of his expensive pill announcement. So he not only ran a criminal financial game and could have gotten away with it, he brought attention to himself that led to his undoing.

    Yup, just like the real housewife of NJ. Couldn't settle for just being rich, had to be famous, too. The circle is now complete.

    This will totally become a salacious Hollywood movie. Which would be fine, except no Leo DiCaprio starring in it.

    The prison rape scene ending will be the best part...
