Jay-Z is releasing a new line of T-shirts in “support” of the Occupy Wall Street movement Friday via his Rocawear clothing label, but he doesn’t plan to share any of the profits with the protesters.
The rapper was recently seen wearing one of the shirts, which tweaks the phrase “Occupy Wall Street” by crossing out the “W” and adding an “S” to make it read “Occupy All Streets.” The protests, which started Sept. 17 in New York, have since spread throughout the U.S. and even worldwide as demonstrators protest corporate greed and corruption.
“It’s probably the most ironic t-shirt in existence,” Jay-Z said. “I mean, here we have a movement that fights against corporate greed and a corporation I own is going to make some sweet coin off it.”
Contrast this with indie act Beltaine’s Fire, who are donating all proceeds from their new album to the Occupy Wall Street Movement.
“I can’t believe Beyonce actually fucks that guy,” said Emcee Lynx, vocalist for Beltaine’s Fire, shaking his head sadly.
