Disgraced pharmaceutical executive and generally awful human being Martin Shkreli wants to throw down against Chris Evans.

“Pharma bro” issued the virtual challenge to the Massachusetts actor after the Captain America and Avengers star weighed in on Shkreli’s Twitter feud with comedian Patton Oswalt.

@ChrisEvans ah another liberal

Comedian gets a pass because wife died but you, @ChrisEvans, I'll fucking destroy. Pretty boy, shit-for-brains. Think your thoughts matter?

Come to Brooklyn and I'll introduce you to the real Captain America and a couple of fuckin roundhouses if you say my name again @ChrisEvans

While Evans has yet to respond to the tweets, we wouldn’t be surprised if this was his reaction:

The whole fiasco started when Shkreli, who once endorsed Donald Trump, took issue with Oswalt’s tweet about the hashtag #TrumpCantSwim. After a lot of back-and-forth posts, it was clear that the comedian won this Internet war, mostly thanks to gems like this post.

Dude, 12 year-olds on a Skittles rush can troll better than you. https://t.co/j0uLn9zrRl

Shkreli, if you don’t remember, drew the ire of the world after he jacked up prices on various life-saving drugs, including a 5,000 percent hike on the cost of medication for HIV-positive patients. He was arrested by the FBI last year on securities fraud charges and will go to trial over the matter next June.
