UPDATE 11/12 4pm: TMZ reports that Rocawear is no longer selling the shirts.
The Throne supports Occupy Wall Street… sort of. Last month, a silent Kanye West hit the protest site in New York’s Zuccotti Park for a quick walk-around. Now, Business Insider (via the Hollywood Reporter) reports that Jay-Z’s clothing label Rocawear plans to sell Occupy Wall Street-themed t-shirts that read “Occupy All Streets.” (Hov’s been seeing wearing one of the shirts himself).
But the slogan is as far as the support goes. “‘Occupy All Streets’ is our way of reminding people that there is change to be made everywhere, not just on Wall Street,” a Rocawear spokesperson told Business Insider. “At this time we have not made an official commitment to monetarily support the movement.”
Below, watch footage from Jay and Kanye’s “Watch the Throne” kick-off show in Atlanta last month:
