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.

Abysmal     

First important social moment in the last 50 years? Hahaha.They've done nothing but sit in a park for the last two months.These people complain about how much they want to see a change in government that they don't realize that they haven't done enough to accomplish their goals.

ha! = who cares - OWS already has over 1/2 million in the bank from fund raising that they can't spend because they have no clear message or plan to institute - all they have is a slogan and ppl protesting, not exactly well thought out

OWS IsStupid    

I think he should put them back up on the site. the OWS morons do not deserve someone contributing anything to them.
Sexual assault, deaths, disease, thefts, destruction of property, filth. That is all they have contributed, and they think someone owes the money???

Oops, just feel off my seat laughing so hard.

Jay-Z is an idiot, but this Occupy Goons are pathetic worthless pieces of garbage that don't have a clue. Most are either paid shills of Obama or mindless sheep just following the crowd.

So quick to judge, so quick to rush to conclusions... only time will tell if this movement accomplishes anything or it was all just a blip on the radar. I for one hope they do accomplish something. I think this country is heading towards disaster if things continue as is.
I'm tired of government passing on problems to future generations. Seems no one in power and/or money has the cajones to make the hard decisions. Seems all they care about is getting elected or protecting their tax sheltered bonuses. History and God will judge us all.
