NEW YORK, New York - He's been dubbed 'the most hated man in America,' and now the Pharma Bro, Martin Shkreli is giving his haters plenty of reason to keep that title.
Well, a New York judge ordered the Pharma Bro to shut up about his securities fraud case and hit him with a partial gag order Wednesday.
Seems the 34-year-old former drug exec had stormed a room full of spectators and attacked the credibility of a government witness in his case.
But the judge's order didn't silence Shkreli completely, he just can't talk about it in or around the Brooklyn courthouse where he's on trial for a hedge fund fraud scheme.
Shkreli first popped up on everyone's radar back in 2015 when he jacked up the price of a life-saving drug by 5,000 percent and sparked a huge public outrage.
And now that Shkreli spoke on camera outside of the courtroom and also on Twitter using a secret account, he seems to be pressing his luck with the judge.
Shkreli was already banned from Twitter after harassing a female journalist back in January and now his new Twitter account has been banned, too.
Prosecutors wanted the Pharma Bro hushed up completely, but Shkreli's attorney argued his client has a First Amendment right to speak out.
But if his comments taint the jury then a fair trial may become impossible.
If that happens who knows what kind of prescription the Pharma Bro will get from his legion of haters.
