- This is the guy who jacked up the price on an Aids drug, btw.
This isn't the first time the businessman's dating life has been scrutinized in the public eye, over the past two years his online profiles for Tinder and OKCupid have been found.
New York writer Eve Peyser, 23, says she matched with pharmaceutical CEO on Tinder in October of 2015.
She then posted her conversation with Shkerli online in which she questions him for the jacking up the price of Daraprim from $13.50 to $750 per pill.
Budding reporter Eve Peyser, 23, matched with maligned pharmaceutical boss Martin Shkreli on Tinder in 2015
Peyser decided to use their exchanges to interview him about his company's controversial price hike of the HIV drug Daraprim.
He explained his reasoning to Peyser for the controversial hike because the 'disease was forsaken by drug companies for not being profitable enough'.
He continued: 'Only a few thousand people get it. So no new drugs for 70 years.
'Now we'll fix that. Also no one goes without drug even if they can't afford it.'
Peyser's final question to Shkreli is whether he believes he is the Edward Snowden of AIDS drugs, but he never responded.
Peyser says that he either blocked or unmatched her on Tinder after that message.
