Former drug company executive Martin Shkreli on Tuesday apologized for a Facebook post that offered his followers a ,000 reward for obtaining a strand of Hillary Clinton 's hair, a post that led U.S. prosecutors to ask that he be jailed while he awaits sentencing for securities fraud.

Shkreli's initial response to the government motion was profanity and scorn. "Come at me with you [sic] hardest because I haven't seen anything impressive yet," he wrote on his Facebook page last week.

But on the eve of a hearing that will determine if he goes to jail, his tone changed.

"I wanted to personally apologize to this Court and my lawyers for the aggravation that my recent postings have caused," Shkreli wrote. "I used poor judgment but never intended to cause alarm or promote any act of violence whatsoever."

His lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, said that a distinction should be made between crude satire and bona fide threats or harassment.

"One recent example of this form of offensive political speech was Kathy Griffin's controversial photograph of her holding the faux bloody head of President Trump," Brafman wrote.
