Jay-Z's Occupy Wall Street T-Shirts Removed From Website

After there was criticism surrounding Jay-Z's Occupy Wall Street t-shirts (like above), the shirts have miraculously disappeared from Rocawear website.

Critics were mad because Jay and Rocawear didn't plan on giving a single cent from the t-shirts to the Occupyers themselves. So, who exactly would profit from the shirts? Millionaires like Jay-Z??

Grim, one of the leaders of the Occupy movement commented on matter, saying:

"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 moment of 50 years with an overpriced piece of cotton is an insult to the fight for economic civil rights known as #occupywallstreet."

Those are fightin' words there! Yikes!!

It seems that there was good intention behind the theme of the t-shirts, but, perhaps it wasn't fully thought out…

    Maybe, they could donate the proceeds to the cities they are occupying. The damages created in the parks have to be paid by the city and taxed to the 99%.

    LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

    I thought it was cool when he first made the shirts, giving publicity to an important movement, but the fact he wasn't going to give any percent of money ma is outrageous! Like what the fuck JayZ??? I really thought dude had good intentions here… how the fuck you gunna bank off poor kids trying to do something right you greedy fuck?!?!

    Re: vheevixen – That was my thoughts exactly. Those people are out there suffering and taking a stand sleeping on the streets and here he is trying to profit off that. Unreal. Would have been great had he done this to help fund them by giving a %100 profit since he is not out there himself. Stepping out for a few hours is nothing when he gets to go home to his cozy lifestyle while the rest is fighting just to put food on the table. No, def. not thought out.

    With the NBA lockout bitch needs to make some coin and fast. That he would piggyback his 1% lifestyle just goes to show everyone what an enterprising capitalist money hoarder he is. The shirts will be on the clearance rack at Marshall along with the rest of his clothen line by tomorrow.

    He lived in the projects when he was young and now is supposed to be worth of 450 million. Screw you Jay Z. Don't buy Rocawear.

    This dude is TRASHY & TACKY, just like his wife. I can't believe he'd have the nerve to sell shirts based on the Occupy W S movement, but refuses to help the protestors w sum cash. Go away dirty a$$hole!!! Only stOOpid dumb fucks like you now. Thankfully I despise the shit u produce so u won't b seeing a penny from me, EVER. Besides, I can't believe this money hungry, DESPERATE TOOL is still alive and Tupac is dead. NOT FUCKING FAIR!!!!
    P.S: those shirts r butt ugly.

    This is why I will not go to none of his concerts. This dude is insane. Some of these artists don't need to be out Occuping anyway, I feel they have plenty of money. Last time it was Kanye out there with his expensive gold around his neck and here it is people on sleeping on the street for a cause. Look at Diddy just made 1 billion did he donate to the cause? We need to teach our children about buying some of these artists music because they are making big money while the parents are struggling to make ends meet. I say this again fuc* Jay and anymore like him.

    obviously Jay-Z is a greedy "man" (and I use that word loosley) without a conscience
    if he were a real man he'd go by his given name and not his childish rap moniker
    if he were a real man he would have donated every cent from the shirts to either charity or city coffers to assist with clean-up…or not done the shirts at all
    his jumping on the Occupy bandwaggon to profit tells me a lot about him and the woman who knows him best and still chose to marry him …
    all about the $$ and the pretence of being "good people"
    have no use for either of them
    "when people show/tell you who they are…believe them" is something that Oprah used to say that Maya Angelou told her
    well Jay Z has shown us who he is and I for one am disgusted!

    OWS'ers are true American heros. Thank God for them. Obama will win next year. Americans are not dumb enough to hand the country over to the sick greedy 1% Republicans.

    STF UP AND GROW A BRAIN.

    "…as talented as he his…" isn't this the guy who needs a teleprompter with his OWN lyrics at his concerts?

    Another reason to hate fugly monkey.
