WATCH: Larry Wilmore Suggests Guillotine Might Be Apt for Pharma Bro

Looking back over 2015, Larry Wilmore thought justice had a pretty rough year. In fact, it was such a bad year that, "Justice is considering faking its own death, changing its name to Ronda and starting a new life in Toronto," The Nightly Show host quipped.


But there was one teeny tiny little bright spot, the arrest of abhorrent, price-gouging Pharma Bro Martin Shkreli this week on charges of securities fraud.

"Yes!" Wilmore and millions of others celebrated. Maybe bringing back the guillotine, just this once, would be a good idea. "Some people just need to die," WIlmore said. "I'm just saying, Superbowl half-time show!"
