There are a lot of people who are not fans of Martin Shkreli, and it turns out that the court system has been trying to recruit some of them to be jurors in his security fraud case. A transcript of the juror selection process for the entrepreneur’s case has been unveiled, and one of the potential jurors refused to be impartial because Shkreli disrespected Wu-Tang Clan.

While tons of other jurors spoke on not being impartial due to having direct and indirect connections to Shkreli’s pharmaceutical controversies, one juror kept it candid about his Wu-Tang disrespect.

“Your Honor, totally he is guilty and in no way can I let him slide out of anything because…” Juror No. 59 stated prior to being asked if that was their attitude before Shkreli had been proven guilty. “It’s my attitude toward his entire demeanor, what he has done to people… and he disrespected the Wu-Tang Clan.”

Juror No. 59 was not the only one name-dropping the veteran hip-hop group in his reason for not being impartial, as No. 144 also kept things brutally honest as well.

“I heard through the news of how the defendant changed the price of a pill by up-selling it,” the juror explains. “I heard he bought an album from the Wu-Tang Clan for a million dollars. I don’t think I can because he kind of looks like a dick.”

Both jurors ended up being dismissed from the case due to their inability to be impartial.

If you recall, Martin Shkreli not only purchased the one single copy of the recent Wu-Tang Clan album for a large amount of money, but he’s even responsible for leaking songs off of Lil Wayne’s unreleased Carter V album.
