Prosecutors are asking a judge to issue a gag order for Martin Shkreli during his fraud trial.
  • The infamously outspoken pharmaceutical CEO appeared on his YouTube livestream one day after the gag order.
  • For multiple hours, the 34-year-old hedge fund manager played video games and popped bubble wrap.
  • He also answered questions from reporters, denying testimony against him.
  • The prosecution is worried his comments may taint the jury.
