Martin Shkreli pissed off a loyal fanbase.
RZA told the world that "Wu-Tang Clan ain t nuthing to fuck wit" on the group's debut album, Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). The infamous Martin Shkreli got a reminder of this important lesson during jury selection for his securities fraud trial.
A transcript from the process of selection was published by Harper's Magazine, revealing that Shkreli lack of respect for the influential group was part of the reason why a person was dismissed as a member of the jury. Read the Wu-Tang reference exchange between the court and the jury below.
The Court: All right. I'm going to excuse. Juror Number 59, we're going up.
Juror No. 59: Your Honor, totally he is guilty, and in no way can I let him slip out of the nothing, because —
The Court: I Agree. Is that your attitude toward any person accused of a crime that has not been proven guilty?
Juror No. 59: Is my attitude towards all of his behavior, what that has done to the people.
The Court: All right. We will excuse you, sir.
Juror No. 59: And he disrespected the Wu-Tang Clan.
Shkreli was finally convicted of three counts of securities fraud. The conviction not to let his Wu-Tang teased, even as he casually played in the group of 2 million dollars album, once Upon a Time In Shaolin, during a livestream.
