Jay-Z creates an Occupy Wall Street t-shirt to support the movement, but not with proceeds.
Jay-Z is looking to make a little change off the ongoing Occupy Wall Street protest, now in its third month.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Rocawear has designed a shirt that crosses out the “W” in the popular phrase and adds an “S” to “Street.” The phrase on the t-shirt reads “Occupy All Streets”
But perhaps what makes this matter a bit bizarre is that Rocawear has no plans to share any of the profits with the protestors camped out at Zucotti Park in lower Manhattan.
A spokesperson for the mega clothing company said, “The ‘Occupy All Streets’ T-Shirt was created in support of the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement. Rockawear strongly encourages all forms of constructive expression.”
But made it clear that “official commitment to monetarily support the movement” doesn’t exist.
Should Jay-Z be a little more generous with the earnings, since folks are fighting against corporate greed that’s greatly affecting many Americans?
