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.

if he had promised all proceeds to go to a legitimate charitable organization I would have bought one.But he's a billionaire twice over with partner Beyonce,& he wouldn't commit the proceeds to anything but his company? You stink Jay-Z.R. Simmons's a well know philanthropist & outspoken advocate for peaceful solutions,& a practicing disciple of eastern philosophy;he probably told Jay-Z:"big,bad,greedy, p.r.move Jay-Z.".

Jay-Z you've kind had your time, move over, your rhymes are weak and it's only the money you have that's allowing you to buy ghost writers galore under a different company, using different rappers to test your style on...YO...it's obvious...but I goes you need more exposure. Hack.

Well first of all IF he supports those Libtards on this OW BS he's an IDIOT. But if he's just doing it to make money I can care less make money off those tardos. They are all Idiots anyway. A complete Tardfest supported by none other than Crackhead Oduma and his Regime of Liberal Marxists..

Jay-Z is a sell out Illuminati douche bag who would sell his own family for a dollar. I find it hilarious that he's selling T-Shirts to advocate a cause against those who gave him all his cash. Way to go Jay-Z....sell yourself out to the Illuminati become filthy stinking rich and then pretend your rooting for the have-nots. What a hypocrite...stick to promoting the Illuminati in your records at least then your backing who you really support!

Oh that is so great!!!!!! It is about time someone puts this mans over sized ego in check. Grim isn't one bit intimidated by Jay-Z, he spoke the truth, Jay-Z is a self serving arrogant jerk who is media created and has allowed himself to believe his leaches when they tell him how great he is.

Oh, that's right. Him and his wife routinely party with Obama and MEchelle. Barry must have told him it's bad PR. It was nice to see JayZ and Beyonce hangin' in Whitehouse under the Presidential Seal. Beyonce has certainly rubbed off on Moochelle, she too considers herself and African Queen!

Any idiot can blame Obama for our financiaal woos but the reality is: This President walked into alot of S*&$4>T! created by greedy GOP CEO's and sneaky GOP investors combned with two wars started by GOP politicians...look on the bright side if Palin was vice president she would had reasigned after her 2nd year.
