Jay-Z Occupy Wall Street Shirts Not on Rocawear Site Anymore

Jay-Z came under fire last week after a rep for his Rocawear clothing line announced he would be releasing an Occupy Wall Street-inspired shirt that would not benefit the movement. Now, it appears the T-shirt idea has been scrapped.

TMZ reports Jay-Z’s “Occupy All Streets” tees, which Jay-Z was pictured rocking during one of his Watch the Throne concert stops recently, are no longer on sale on the Rocawear site.

Before the t-shirts were pulled, TMZ spoke with Grim, one of the leaders of the Occupy movement, about Jay-Z’s new clothing venture, and he said, “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.”

Jay-Z has not publicly responded to the reports.—Gina Montana
