Lauren took this tweet as harassment and replied by denying the offer.
Over the weekend, journalist Lauren Duca - who recently penned an article for Teen Vogue in which she argued that Trump had "conned America" - posted claims that she had been contacted by Shkreli.
Asked for a comment on the suspension, Shkreli accused the Daily News of "harassing" him by calling for comment.
Shrekli had previously "direct messaged" Duca on the platform, asking if she'd be his date to the inauguration on January 20, according to a tweet by Duca. However, Duca rejected his offer, tweeting "I would rather eat my own organs".
Pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli's crush on a liberal writer made public on Twitter was enough to get him suspended from the social media site on Sunday. Duca was outraged at Shkreli's boldness and demanded answers as to how the beleaguered former hedge fund manager was able to freely harass her. Soon after this, Shkreli's Twitter account followed by 200,000 people was suspended. All of which might explain her resounding no - Duca could not be reached for comment.
After Backlash, Including From Trump, House GOP Drops Weakening Of Ethics Office
In a closed door session, Republicans voted to eliminate the Office of Congressional Ethics. It hasn't exactly been a smooth first week for the Republican-controlled 115 Congress.
Brianna Wu, a video game developer and software engineer who intends to run for the US House of Representatives in 2018, tweeted that she was glad to see Twitter suspended Shkreli.
And Sunday, Duca noticed that Shkreli had changed his Twitter profile picture to an image of her, in which Shkreli's face was photoshopped onto that of another man.
Shkreli had drawn widespread criticism in 2015 after his firm increased the price of an essential drug used by many AIDS patient, Daraprim, from $13.50 (£11) per pill to $750.
That's when Duca made a decision to take matters into her own hands and contacted Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey directly about Shkreli's alleged abuse. Duca, however, added that she thinks it is unfortunate that her case is only getting attention because of the high-profile Shkreli, as trolling looks like it is now an automatic occupational hazard for female reporters. He's since been arrested and charged with securities fraud. Critics have said not enough is being done to protect its users.
