Michael Moore isn’t the only one cashing in on the increasingly violent, deadly Occupy Wall Street Movement.
He’s selling books. Rappyer Jay Z’s hawking t-shirts.
And he’s got no plans to redistribute the wealth:
Jay-Z is releasing a new line of T-shirts in support of the Occupy Wall Street movement Friday via his Rocawear clothing label, but he doesn’t plan to share any of the profits with the protesters.

The rapper was recently seen wearing one of the shirts, which tweaks the phrase “Occupy Wall Street” by crossing out the “W” and adding an “S” to make it read “Occupy All Streets.” The protests, which started Sept. 17 in New York, have since spread to Los Angeles and other cities as demonstrators protest corporate greed and corruption.
The Business Insider noted the “irony” in that Jay-Z has no intention to distribute any of the proceeds to protestors.
Jay-Z has the support of fellow 1 percenter-posing-as-99 percenter Russell Simmons.
$22 a pop. Come on, cough it up, progs.
Occupy Jay-Z’s Wallet!
Money Ain’t a Thang…
Update: Backlash plus mockery equals no more Jay-Z #OWS swag.
