Either pharma bro Martin Shkreli is actually trying to threaten Ghostface Killah, or April Fool's Day is here really early this year

This week in bad ideas, it appears that human social experiment Martin Shkreli, excessively proud owner of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, has tried to threaten and demand an apology from Ghostface Killah. The so-called beef stems from recent interviews in which Ghost mocked Shkreli and called him out for price-gouging and album-bogarting.

"It's just one of these things, that for whatever reason you think it's okay to beef with me, but that's a big mistake," Shkreli says in the above video, before fishing for a pen pal. "If you ever say some dumb shit again, this album, this Shaolin, I'm gonna erase all your shit from this album. I'm gonna erase you from the record books of rap. You're my son. You have to listen to me. I butter your bread, you understand me? Without me, you're nothing."

The new dad also (kind of) explained the situation to TMZ, in yet another Thursday video sure to (re-)insult music fans the world over:

Martin Shkreli -- You Dissing Me, TMZ?!

Ghost had yet to respond at time of publication, but Shkreli was not backing down:

Where's NDGT, dangerous beef executioner, when you need him?
