Price-gouging pharma CEO’s address, phone number leaked

An anonymous source released the alleged phone number and home address of the pharmaceuticals exec that boasted about raising the price of 62-year-old life saving drug by nearly 5000 percent.

On Tuesday the source tweeted Turing Pharmaceuticals' CEO Martin Shkreli's information to several prominent accounts including, the AIDS organization, ACT UP and Occupy Wall Street using a now suspended account, according to the music and culture site Death and Taxes.

Earlier this week Shkreli garnered heavy backlash after announcing he would raise the price of Daraprim, a drug used to treat parasitic infections in people with weak immune systems, from $13.50 to a tablet to $750. Shkreli later told NBC News that he would lower the price to an undisclosed amount “in response to the anger that was felt by people."

The pharma executive has been in a digital fray before.

In 2013 he was accused of hacking a rival's email account and harassing their family according to a police report posted on Twitter by @BrooklynJuggler.
