Martin Shkreli might not have been a household name when the year began, but he’s becoming someone more and more people know about thanks to the fact that he drove up the costs of an important drug known as Daraprim to the point it was completely un-affordable. Then, on December 17th, Martin Shkreli was arrested, seemingly underlining the opinion most people who had heard of him held towards him, and it appears this young tycoon is not exactly a great person.

Check out our list of 10 shocking things you didn’t know about Martin Shkreli and tell us what you think.
Apparently it’s hard out there for a hated multi-millionaire. Shkreli had to turn to internet dating site OKCupid in order to try and find a date. There’s no word on whether he actually found romance by using the site.
