“Pharma Bro” braggart Martin Shkreli was ordered jailed by a federal judge Wednesday for a creepy Facebook post in which he claimed he’d pay $5,000 per strand of Hillary Clinton’s hair.

Brooklyn federal court judge Kiyo Matsumoto declared Shkreli, convicted of securities fraud last month, a “danger to society,” the New York Post reported.

The judge rejected a letter from Shrkeli explaining the since-deleted Facebook status post was an “awkward attempt at humor or satire,” revoking his $5 million bond and ordering him jailed.

The Clinton hair bounty was the climax of a series of other trolling that seemingly suggested he intended to clone the former Democratic presidential nominee. It caught the attention of the Secret Service, which contacted him afterward.

“… on HRC’s book tour, try and grab a hair from her,” he posted Sept. 4. “I must confirm the sequences I have. Will pay $5,000 per hair obtained from Hillary Clinton.”

Shkreli – a former pharmaceutical CEO notorious for a drug price-gouging scandal and for his snide "Pharma Bro" persona on social media – faces up to 20 years when he’s sentenced for defrauding hedge fund investors; no date’s been set.

”F*** the government,” Shkreli wrote on Facebook after prosecutors filed a motion asking the judge to revoke his bond, the Post reported. “I will never kiss their ring or snitch. Come at me with your hardest because I haven’t seen anything impressive yet.”
