Kanye West, representing the 1% at Occupy Wall Street

 I am not really a political person. I have my views, but I really hate choosing between the lesser of two evils, and that’s all politics really means to me. I’ve been loosely following Occupy Wall Street, which I think has shaped itself from a bunch of angry anarchists with no real ideas for a better political and economical system to an actual movement that might actually bring light to the fact that that there needs to be a change…and that student loan debt is the root of all evil.

Apparently, Kanye West is at Occupy Wall Street today. Excuse me Kanye, what in the HELL are you doing at Occupy Wall Street? I bet the clothes on your back cost more than 3 months of my rent. I bet you went and ate at NoBu in TriBeCa before heading down to the Financial District. Why are you at a protest that is essentially protesting your lifestyle? Did you bother to even read a 140 character tweet about what was going on? I know your brain capacity is that of a pea, so I wouldn’t expect you to go so far as to pick up a newspaper, but come on man!

If you didn’t already know that Kanye West was a huge attention whore, ready to jump on to any trend, politically, musically, or fashionably, now you do. This is one of the biggest examples of stupidity and hypocrisy I have seen in a long time, and frankly, it makes me really upset.

If Kayne was so supportive of the Occupy Wall Street protest, why doesn’t he go and bail out all of the people protesting. I’m sure he’s rolling in enough benjamins that his bank account wouldn’t even flinch. I don’t see Kanye West hiring the artists, students, graduates, and parents down on Wall Street who have been looking for work for months. I see him tweeting from his gold plated iPhone in caps lock about the $1,000 bottle of champagne he poured into his bathtub as part of a new skin softening treatment.

Like I said, I really don’t like politics, but I like Kanye West even less.
