Jay-Z STOPS T-Shirts Sales Amid Criticism, Called A "Hood Rat" And "Scrotum" By Protesters!

​ ​ ​ ​

Amid a growing amount of criticism and charges of corporate greed, Jay-Z and Rocawear have stopped selling their "Occupy All Streets" t-shirts. Get the deets inside......

We told you earlier that Jay-Z's Rocawear company planned to cash in on the whole Occupy Wall Street protest by selling a line of t-shirts reading "Occupy All Streets."

But as soon as folks found out that the company would not be donating any proceeds to the movement, fans and critics began to cry foul!

One very vocal protestor named Grim said,

"Jay-Z, as talented as he is, has the political sensibility of a hood rat and is a scrotum. To attempt to profit off of the first important social moment of 50 years with an overpriced piece of cotton is an insult to the fight for economic civil rights known as #occupywallstreet."

Ouch.

The tees have vanished from the Rocawear's website.

And if you decide to flip your already purchased item on Ebay for a few dollars.....please donate to the movement.

 

EXTRAS

In other shocking hip hop news, last night, DJ Scratch tweeted that Erick Sermon (of EPMD) had suffered a heart attack. He wrote,

"Erick Sermon had a heart attack today.  He's ok, but still send your prayers. He is not on Twitter."

After tons of questions from fans, DJ Scratch replied,

“I wish yall tweet me this much when I tweet good news. Smh."

We will keep you posted with updates.

@ Anonymous 7:58pm get on

@ Anonymous 7:58pm get on your hustle means try being inovative and creative, coming up with new ideas, that's what is meant. don't know what the next great idea is, wish i did, but people who came up with the idea of twitter, facebook etc. they started out with just an idea, look a them now.
Aha!'s picture

the attitudes of some

the attitudes of some people, are quite bewildering. they act as if, just because they are poor and other people who worked very hard and became multimillionaires, have a moral duty and obligation to give their money to the poor. now, it's nice to contribute or donate if that's what they want to do, but for people to attack them, saying they have enough money and don't need any more, making hostile, verbally abusive statements, demanding that they part with THEIR money that THEY EARNED is absurb. let them donate or contribute as THEY SEE FIT. IT'S THEIR MONEY!!!

change or doing the right

change or doing the right thing does'nt always have to be on a large or grand scale, sometimes it can be a small act ......

@ Anonymous 10:09 am nov. 14,

@ Anonymous 10:09 am nov. 14, 11 it means be aware and rectify injustice and wrong doing on all streets, in every aspect of this country and even broader the world, not just wall street. don'nt stand by complacently and not do something or at least try to make a change when you know something is wrong. ex. in the penn state sex scandal, the assist coach who saw the little boy being raped and did'nt do anything to stop it or at least report it to the police.

The YBF Staffer who wrote

The YBF Staffer who wrote this post needs to be slapped. NOW all of a sudden you want to be all political. How much awareness have you brought the to cause using this medium, you self ritcheous prick!! There has barely been a post on the movement but you want to demonize Jay Z for his attempt to raise awareness on the "Occupy All Streets" Movement. You guys didn't even give him a chance to explain what he meant by the shirts. I would have loved to see is interpretation of what he meant. People are soooo quick to judge and point fingers, especially at someone of his economic status. No he does not need the money...but I really dont think it was about Money. He did not take anything away from the protestors Many of the pricks who are running their mouth prop have not given to the cause including the biggest prick who wrote this post. I really wish i could give him/her a good piece of my mind.

The message of the shirt "Occupy All Streets" is cryptic to me. It doesn't seem to support the movement or really be about anything. J messed the mark with this one..

They dont care to speak out against or even know what their senators/congresspeople are doing. Do they even know about the laws that are disenfranchising voters? Why dont you idots read the book "The New Jim Crow" and realize that Jay is the least of your worries. Dumb asses thats why we are in the state we are in now. Distracted by bullshit stories and ingoring everthing else going on around us!.

Jay-Z is a Capitalist. There

Jay-Z is a Capitalist. There is nothing wrong with him wanting to make money. He may have made a poor decision but I'm not holding anything against him. People are allowed to make choices be they good or poor ones. Jay-Z is not very well educated so this was just a poor decision. I don't think Jay-Z came up with the idea. But again...Jay-Z does not own any political movements his consideration. And Jay-Z has nothing to do with that movement. People need to take their anger out on the Political parties they support and the people who represent them. Most people attacking Jay-Z and saying he does not "care" about you probably are not even registered to VOTE! So please spare me the DRAMA. You are responsible for the situation you're in not Jay-Z. You have to be politically aware.......

That is one of the reasons I

That is one of the reasons I love ALicia Keys, she does donate a great deal of her time and money to charity. People want to put Beyonce on this icon level--to me, since day one under Matty--she's always been self centered just like her husband. I wish them both well in the crystal palace they have built for themselves. Hail Queen Bey and Hov (other word for God). . .
Anonymous's picture

Bey does plenty for charity.

Bey does plenty for charity. She does not put it out there. She does it out of the kindness of her heart and not as another layer of her superstar persona like Alicia does. Alicia does it cause thats what she wants to be known for, she wants the recognition associated with it. Bey has founded plenty of charities and recently opened up a cosmetology school, but does not hold gala's and such to draw attention to it. She donated her whole 4 mil salary to a drug abuse facility when she played in Cadillac Records. She donated 1mil to Haiti relief fund and the list goes on and on. Everyone wants to search for anything remotely negative about Bey what choose to ignore the good she does.

When a celebrity puts her

When a celebrity puts her face to a cause, it's way bigger than an amount of money she could donate. Alicia Keys putting her face to the save a child campaign has enabled that charity to make millions and millions of money, and be the success that it is today. It brings in donations from the public, her fans and other celebrities. That does a lot more than a one time $4million donation, trust me! Maybe Bey is the one too concerned with her image to put her face on a charity that deals with AIDS. Think about that....

You are guessing. Some people

You are guessing. Some people think giving should be done anonymously , and some don't. Bey has a foundation to raise money for, but does it differently. That doesn't make Alicia any better.

These people with money just

These people with money just want some pubicity. They don't really know about us. They want to feel connected to where they came from. We know it is not genuine when you tooo are trying to profit of of us. Yes, you Jay Z. Selling T-shirts for profit. Where was the money going and who buys your stuff? The people need to stop wasting their money buying all thes records and movies because those celebrities don't care about us except when they want someone to buy their stuff because that is their money. I say tthey all need a paycut they are not doing nothing that deserves the millions they make. They are not really taking care of the poor in this country, helping with education in this country, medical care in this country. Helping kids to go to school. We have people in this country that live like people in the third worlds. Hell, Jay Z could take care of all of one poor black community and still live in luxury is he? no. Why? cause he is a greedy bastard like the rest of them.

He is a greedy basterd! all

He is a greedy basterd! all he thinks about is money and I don't even know the man. If he was not giving all that money away for the sales what else was his purpose other than he saw an oppotunity, dollar signs. Hell, he know how to make money off his wife too. They make'in money every time they're pictures are being taken while they are out because they are the ones calling the paparazzi to come and take the pics. On a personal level I do not think he is someone I want to be around too caughtr up in the money. Whenever he claim he helping somebody he has to advertise it that is not a genuine heart. Beyonce always talkin about her alter ego that girl is crazy! she gotta be to be with that thing she is with.

Yes you are correct. Everyone

Yes you are correct. Everyone cannot be an entreprenuer. However there are several jobs out here for people. Do you think someone making 6 figures is going to work at McDonald's? You are telling me that these kids who are on the ipads and iphones as someone else noted are incapable of being creative? I was just watching the news and saw that North Dakota/Montana has alot of jobs that are making 70K++, but who wants to move there? Please read, "Who Moved My Cheese?" by Spencer Johnson. It is a great analogy for life's changes. The real problem is that we have a bunch of adults that are inflexible and unadaptable. They don't have transferrable skills and they don't have back-up plans. They overspent trying to live like the real wealthy people on t.v. Now they don't know what to do. Yes we need more jobs. But Jay Z isn't to blame. He isn't a sell out. He has no obligation to contribute to this disinfranchized movement. His shirt means "GET ON YOUR HUSTLE!" Get it together people.

Get on your hustle and do what, sell drugs? Get on your hustle and exploit a movement that is speaking out against corporate America exploiting people? I'm a professional, financially VERY comfortable, but I understand that the "system" is highly flawed, and yes reform is needed. I've been down to OWS , and trust me not everyone there is what you've described. Open your eyes and realize that this movement is about ALL of us.
