Jay-Z's got 99 problems — but a T-shirt ain't one. Or maybe it is. Or maybe it isn't. like us on facebook As is the case with so much of the Occupy Wall Street movement, it's all so confusing. The artist/entrepreneur known as Jay-Z was seen last week at OWS protests wearing a nifty T-shirt that proclaimed, "OCCUPY ALL STREETS." The shirts were made available on his Rocawear website — but there was an outcry from OWS organizers who said none of the proceeds were coming their way. "Jay-Z, as talented as he is, has the political sensibility of a hood rat and is a scrotum," said an individual who identifies himself as "Grim" and is described as one of the leaders of the movement, which appears to have leaders even though it claims it doesn't have any leaders. "To attempt to profit off the first important social movement of 50 years with an overpriced piece of cotton is an insult to the fight for economic civil rights known as #occupywallstreet," Grim told TMZ. Wait — 50 years? So apparently the civil rights movement of the 1960s, Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech, protests against the Vietnam War — none of those count as an "important social movement" when up against the "mic check, mic check" movement of 2011. Got it. After the backlash, Rocawear pulled the $22 T-shirts from its site — but they were back up on Monday. tags occupy wall street protest occupy wall street protest occupy wall street protest occupy wall street protest occupy wall street ...
