Bill Murray is not legally allowed to steal back Wu-Tang’s album, but he should anyways

The alleged contract between Wu-Tang and Martin Shkreli is very funny, but also very fake

Yesterday brought some very unfortunate news: Martin Shkreli, the price-gouging scum of the Earth pharmaceutical CEO who made headlines earlier this year for raising the price of a drug used by AIDS and cancer patients from $13.50 to $750 (an increase of 5,000%), had purchased the one and only copy of Wu-Tang Clan’s The Wu – Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, reportedly for the sum of $2 million dollars.

Soon after, the alleged contract between Shkreli and Wu-Tang Clan leaked onto the web, revealing the existence of a truly amazing clause that gave “Wu-Tang Clan and/or actor Bill Murray” the legal right to “plan and attempt to execute one (1) heist or caper to steal back Once Upon Upon A Time In Shaolin, which, if successful, would return all ownership rights to the seller.”

Sadly we must report that while this leaked contract is not real, but merely a joke tweeted by Rob Wesley that was understandably picked up by various media outlets, because seriously, fuck Martin Shkreli. (It’s worth noting that no legally-binding contract can give you permission to break the law.)

Of course that doesn’t mean Murray and/or the members of Wu-Tang can’t or won’t be inspired to carry out such a heist, and let’s hope they do, because seriously, fuck Martin Shkreli.

Or, at the very least, let this be the plot of Wes Anderson’s next movie. And, again, fuck Martin Shkreli.
