Comments:  | Leave A Comment

Jay-Z’s Occupy Wall Street T-shirt line has been pulled from Rocawear’s website just days after critics slammed the millionaire rapper for cashing in on the movement without promising to share a penny of profits with the 99%.

The shirts, stamped with the phrase, “Occupy All Streets,” first appeared when Russell Simmons tweeted a picture of Jay-Z wearing one backstage at a concert.

Rocawear announced on Thursday that it planned to sell the T-shirts for $22, but any trace of garments has now been wiped from the brand’s site.

Backlash sparked when Jay-Z’s camp announced it had no plans to share profits.
