It all started when The Late Show dropped a tweet in reference to one of Stephen Colbert's opening jokes on Friday.
If you haven't been following, pharma-bro Martin Shkreli is in the news again for endorsing the price spike of an EpiPen made by Mylan Pharmaceuticals that went from less than $100 to $608.61.
Martin Shkreli took notice to The Late Show tweet and responded to the joke. Soon after, Stephen Colbert (from his personal Twitter) responded to Shkreli in very Colbert-like fashion.
