You didn’t know your Facebook friend Peter Dyson too well when you went to college with him.
You may have had a class or two together, tops. He may have also tried to drunkenly hit on you at that one party, but you’re not quite sure it was him.
Anyway, what you do know now is that he’s an amazing guy.
After Martin Shkreli, the universally hated “Pharma Bro” best known for jacking up the price of an AIDS drug by 5000%, was found guilty of multiple unrelated criminal charges today and will face up to 20 years in prison, Peter had the courage to make this incredible Facebook status:
Can you say mic drop?!
Behind the witty, sarcastic packaging of the post, Peter was making a powerful point: He doesn’t actually feel bad for Shkreli, and he does think that he deserves to pay for his actions.
And it’s no easy feat to publicly condemn someone like Shkreli. Yet here was Peter, doing it anyway, disregarding potential consequences in order to simply do the right thing.
There’s not a ton of good guys like Peter out there, so maybe you should get to know him better. At the very least, he deserves a 55th reaction on that status!
