Martin Shkreli has put that one of a kind Wu Tang album on Ebay

Martin Shkreli has put that one of a kind Wu Tang album on Ebay
Martin Shkreli has been in a lot of trouble recently, but even a conviction for fraud can’t stop him using his money to gather publicity. This time, it’s back to the one of a kind Wu-Tang Clan album he bought for two million dollars.
It’s now on Ebay.
Yep, there’s a auction which purports to be him selling it, and here’s the text:
“This is the one and only Wu-Tang album.
I decided to purchase this album as a gift to the Wu-Tang Clan for their tremendous musical output. Instead I received scorn from at least one of their (least-intelligent) members, and the world at large failed to see my purpose of putting a serious value behind music. I will be curious to see if the world values music nearly as much as I have. I have donated to many rock bands and rappers over the years to ensure they can continue to produce their art when few others would.
At any time I may cancel this sale and I may even break this album in frustration. I will donate half of the sale proceeds to medical research. I am not selling to raise cash--my companies and I have record amounts of cash on hand. I hope someone with a bigger heart for music can be found for this one-of-a-kind piece and makes it available for the world to hear.
Martin Shkreli
Upon sale, I will represent & warranty any copies of the music I have will be destroyed. I have not carefully listened to the album, which is a double CD. There is also a finely crafted booklet which you can read about elsewhere. I will pay legal expenses for the buyer up to $25,000 to ensure the final purchase details are mutually agreeable.”
Bidding is currently a little over ninety thousand dollars.
