Shkreli should have known better. That sort of behavior is only legal if you’re a member of Congress!

He was out on bail, had already been warned about threatening her once. Yet the dude just couldn't handle it, and had to post that tweet. He ended up having his bail entirely revoked, and he hasn't been online since.

I do think it was a rather ridiculous requirement though. Seriously making that tweet was not only entirely legal, it wasn't related to his crimes. If he had been arrested for sending death threats or something that would make perfect sense, but it's a ridiculous thing to require.

They could have put the bail conditions at anything though. He'd have found a way to violate them. He has serious ego problems, and it's bizarre because if you watch him speak normally he comes off as a pretty down to earth normal guy.

He was also going to use it to determine wether or not she was lizard IIRC.

Is journalistic due diligence illegal now?!?

He’s lucky he wasn’t found laying at his front steps robbed and dead, with his rolex still on and nothing missing.

I’m so thankful that even through these troublous times he had the mental fortitude to not commit suicide via 2 gunshots to the back of the head

“Troublous” - I just learnt a new word. Thanks!
