Ultimate Warrior

Wall Street Occupiers Are

iPad-Toting Hypocrites!

11/1/2011 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ultimate WarriorWrestling legend Ultimate Warrior just called BS on the hordes of hipsters behind Occupy Wall Street -- telling TMZ, they're a bunch of poseurs, fueling the same corporate giant they're trying to take down.

In an ultra-rare appearance in full make-up, Warrior -- real name Brian Hellwig -- tells us, "I find it a little ironic that most of these kids own iPads and iPhones and all these material things. They're a big part of the consumerism that goes on in this country."

Warrior adds, "The biggest statement you can make is not to participate in the consumerism of it all. Don't buy the stuff. Start living your own life. Practice what you preach."

We never thought we'd say this, but the man's got a point.

He's an idiot just like the majority of the ones commenting that they agree with him. That is not even close to what OWS is all about. Stop getting your information from Fox news. You dumbasses.

Okay this is RIDICULOUS!!! Occupy wall Street is NOT ABOUT FIGHTING AGAINST MATERIAL CORPORATIONS!! It's about the market crash that nearly bankrupted the country and NO ONE HAS BEEN ARRESTED OR HELD ACCOUNTABLE. Infact, those responsible made millions and millions of dollars in bonuses! It is not about fighting Quiznos, Apple, Starbucks, etc

I'm glad he completely missed the point. The purchasing of corporate products isn't the main problem people have here. The problem is those entities buying government influence.

Those are two completely separate ideas. A corporation or a board member in a corporation can make all the money they want as long as they don't use that money to rig our system of government in their favor.

The last time I checked, that was the epitome of corruption.

and here folks this guy nailed what seems to be wrong with much of this generation

little bitches that never practice what they preach and whine at the slightest of inconveniences to them. i would hate to see what the majority of these people would do if they had much of what they have learn to be "necessities" taken away form them.

Occupy isn't against consumerism, the whole movement is about bringing the country back to being run by the people, not corporations that buy our elected official and then pay them to make it easy for wall st and banks to play fast and loose with our economy an d then have the gall to get billions in bailouts from taxpayers.
The 99% ARE consumers and we are sick and tired of having our money mean less and less every year and see more and more of our taxes go to corporation that make BILLIONS in profits every year at our expense and the expense of the country.

The OWS protesters are NOT calling for abandoning capitalism or material possessions. That's just another Fox News lie. They are calling for JUSTICE. For the s*** bags who drove this economy over a cliff to pay some price. For the 1% to sack up, step up and PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE instead of leaving to the rest of us to pay for and clean up THEIR screw ups. They are calling for a fair and equitable system in which the people who do the work earn a fair wage rather than having their effort go to pay the bonuses of Wall Street sleaze bags who steal for a living.

Wake up America. You are being robbed. The 1% are our for 100% of everything and they will take it if they are not stopped.

And, no, TMZ he doesn't have a point. Frankly, he's an idiot.

He was born Jim Helwig, and legally changed his name to Warrior so WWE (WWF) couldn't take his persona (intellectual property) away from him. FYI - he's not actually from Parts Unknown.
