Martin Shkreli, who was dubbed "Pharma Bro" after he was accused of price gouging an HIV/AIDS drug, is back in the news with a demand that rapper Ghostface Killah apologize for insulting him or else be removed from a rare music album.

Shkreli released a video through TMZ in which he tells Ghostface Killah, a member of Wu-Tang Clan, how mad he is over a comment the rapper made comparing Shkreli's nose to Michael Jackson's, according to CNBC.



Shkreli, the former CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals that hit the news when he raised the price of a life-saving drug from $13.50 per tablet to $750 per tablet, appears in the two-minute video along with three masked men behind him. He wants Ghostface Killah to give him a handwritten apology.


If he doesn't get one, Shkreli then threatens to erase the rapper from "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin," the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album Shkreli purchased for $2 million at an auction last year.

Ghostface Killah's video on what he thinks of Shkreli came out last week, and Shkreli commented on Twitter about it:


Although Shkreli has his admirers online, many continue to speak out against him, as he is currently "free on $5 million bond after being arrested on federal charges of securities fraud," according to CNBC.

The Washington Post said the 32-year-old is turning into
"a bona fide comic book villain," an idea that was repeated in at least one tweet: 


Others don't think taking on Ghostface Killah is a good idea:
