Jay-Z

Occupy T-Shirts Disappear

Amid Criticism

11/12/2011 11:32 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jay-Z Occupy Wall street T-Shirts
Jay-Z and Rocawear have removed their Occupy Wall St. themed t-shirts from Rocawear.com -- after the rap mogul came under heavy fire for profiting off the protests, without donating anything to the cause. 

Jay-Z was photographed wearing the "Occupy All Streets" shirts earlier this week and began selling them on his website. Checking the site today ... the shirts are now gone. 

Before the t-shirts were pulled ... TMZ spoke with Grim, one of the leaders of the Occupy movement, who told us, "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 movement of 50 years with an overpriced piece of cotton is an insult to the fight for economic civil rights known as #occupywallstreet." 

We've been calling Jay-Z's camp for the past two days ... no word back.

update_bar
As of Monday afternoon, the shirts have re-appeared on Rocawear.com, but they are on back order. Still no word back from Jay-Z's camp.

Ask the Fleabaggers @ the OWS protests why they aren't protesting Obama giving HUGE bonuses to the CEO's of FreddieMac and FrannieMae even though those 2 entities are soley responsible for the housing bubble bursting and the financial crisis we're in today

OWS = Biggest losers on Earth. How embarrassing that these low-lifes put themselves on display. Why not just paint "LOSER" on their foreheads?
