Martin Shkreli was hauled in front of a congressional committee today so they could grill him about his price gouging ways.
But the pharma-douche wasn't playing their game, and instead continuously evoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.
Although he remained silent, he was still able to play into his super villain reputation by making a series of obnoxious expressions for the cameras.
At one point, South Carolina Representative Terry Gowdy tried to get Shkreli to say something by asking about his buying of the Wu-Tang album Once Upon A Time In Shoalin.
“We can even talk about the purchase of Wu-Tang Clan—is that the name of the album? The name of the group?” Gowdy asked Shkreli. He got back the same old Fifth Amendment answer. "Mr. Chairman, I am stunned that a conversation about an album he purchased could possibly subject him to incrimination," Gowdy said.It was long after that that the committee sent silent Shkreli home.
Shkreli did get a last word in:
