Jay-Z’s ‘Roc-a-wear’ removes ‘Occupy Wall Street’ shirt from site
For Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, it appears he’s “onto the next one.” Onto the next money making idea that is.
After taking heat for his Roc-a-wear clothing line selling “Occupy Wall Street” T-shirts without donating the proceeds to the movement, the rap superstar’s company has decided to take down selling of the shirt on their website.
Jay-Z had worn the shirt earlier in the week in a photo with music mogul and regular ‘Occupy’ visitor Russell Simmons. Simmons has continued to defend the multi-platinum artist’s decision on his Tweeter page despite the criticism, saying, “what Jay-Z did was great.”
