Martin Shkreli is Crowdsourcing His Dating Life After Prison

By on August 2, 2022 0

Martin Shkreli is allowing interested parties to sign up for time slots so they can go on a date with the former ‘pharma bro’, according to a Tweeter on his somewhat anonymous alt.

Former inmate Shkreli – who spent four years in jail for securities fraud – said he would be “free for dates beginning September 14”, when his ankle monitor comes off. All dates, he said, come with a “standard gift bag (with NDA)”.

The gift bag, depending on the form, will include either jewelry, or a handbag, or shoes.

The form, a public Google Sheets titled “Date Martin Shkreli,” has categories such as whether the interested party needs travel or a hotel, what is their height and weight, chest size, and whether they would do well to get pregnant.

There’s also a tab asking respondents if they “FOTFD” or “first date fuck.”

Some say “yes”, others say “no”. One person only agreed if Shkreli agreed to be tested for STIs. This date has been approved.

According to the form, which is still being updated at the time of writing, Shkreli is booked on a date almost every night until October, except Sundays, and an upcoming “GUY’S NIGHT” which involves being “IN MURRAY HILL BALLING OUT OF CONTROL.”

At least 14 dates are approved in the document, along with other “PROCESSING”.

The form includes an FAQ on Shkreli, which says her height is “5’9” (although some consider that questionable) and that applying doesn’t necessarily guarantee a date.

The Daily Dot contacted several women who were “approved” for a date with Shkreli, after including Instagram and Twitter handles in the form for him, but they did not respond to a request for comment.

While reporting the story, Shkreli contacted the Daily Dot, saying her dates were “harassed” and demanding that the Daily Dot “cease and desist”.

He did not respond to a request for comment on the form.

Shkreli has been back in the public sphere since being released from prison in May after serving time for defrauding investors and running a Ponzi scheme. Since his release, he has created a semi-anonymized Twitter account @zkEnrique7 and announced a web3-based pharmaceutical company called Druglike, though it’s unclear if Druglike is violating its lifetime ban on working in the pharmaceutical industry.

And he’s apparently ready to start dating again.
