The evening was billed this way:
Martin will discuss investing, healthcare and politics in a presentation/lecture format for one hour and will take questions. There will be a bar session after the Q&A where Shkreli will be available to chat and take photographs. He WILL play tracks from his unreleased music collection (Wu-Tang and more).
Shkreli, who was indicted for securities fraud, famously bought the sole copy of the Wu Tang Clan‘s "Once Upon A Time in Shaolin" in 2015 for $2 million. (He played several tracks in a livestream after Donald Trump won the presidency.)
A Webster Hall rep told Patch that the event has been cancelled without commenting further.
Shkreli confirmed the Webster Hall cancellation on Facebook...
However, tickets are still on sale for the event, with no venue listed...
Shkreli, 33, is awaiting trial for securities fraud. Prosecutors have accused him of looting the pharma company that he was heading of $11 million to pay off investors he was suspected of defrauding.
Last month, he was reportedly suspended from Twitter for harassing a writer from Teen Vogue.
