Last week we saw a photo of Gossip Girl actor Penn Badgley participating in the Occupy Wall Street protest going on in NYC, NY and today we learn that another big name celeb was spotted at the protest this weekend. None other than rapper Kanye West himself was spotted in the midst of the protestors rallying against corporate greed. Click below for the photographic proof.
Now … why was he there? Unlike Penn who was holding aloft a protest sign, Kanye was just chillin’ in the crowd. Was he really there to protest … or just to hang out. It’s possible he was on his way to some other place and he decided to cut thru what he thought was a group of tourists along the way … BAM! someone takes a photo and POOF! he’s part of the protest. I suppose it’s possible that Kanye is actually participating in the protest but … my gut tells me he was just there to stand amongst the throngs of people for a little attention. HMMM. What do YOU think? Is Kanye West part of the 99% fighting against the 1% of the richest people who run the world?
