Occupy Wall Street protesters are upset with Jay- Z and the Rockawear Company.  Jay- Z apparently wanted to sell T-shirts with the slogan “Occupy All Streets”  which pissed off people, involve with the movement.  The problem is they feel Jay is trying to profit off the cause, selling the T-shirts for $22.00. One of the leaders in the movement told TMZ”Jay-Z,as talented as he is, has the political sensibility of a hood rat and is a scrotum. To attempt to profit off of the first important social moment of 50 years with an overpriced piece of cotton is an insult to the fight for economiccivil rights known as #occupywallstreet.”  When asked if  Rockawear would donate  proceeds to the movement Rockawear issued a statement saying the company has not “made an official commitment to support the movement financially”.   It appears Rockawear has removed the shirts from the their website.  FYI thisandthatreaders!!!  Is Jay Z insensitive to the movement by trying  capitalize ? Share your thoughts….

  1. The guy has a moral compass of a drug dealer…which is the former occupation of both Russell Simmons and Jay-Z. The irony in all this is that OWS embraced #unclerush with open arms every time he visited and I saw this. Hell they even embraced MTV News. And as a man I am offended that my scrotum or any scrotum would be compared to with the entire being of Jay-Z…I find myself to be a rather dignified intellectual. Jay-Z is to society what a poop flavored lollipop is to a candy shop.
