Jay-Z's "Occupy All Streets" shirt, which was made available on Friday through Rocawear's website, has seemingly been pulled from the market amidst a storm of controversy. After it was revealed that the rapper's apparel empire had no intention of donating sales profits from the shirt to the actual Occupy Wall Street movement, critics found the move cynical and self-serving.
Rocawear initially defended the shirt and their line of reasoning, releasing a statement that claimed, "There is change to be made everywhere, not just on Wall Street." As of now, the label has offered no explanation for their decision to remove the shirts from their site.
UPDATE: According to hip-hop blog Global Grind, the "Occupy All Streets" shirts will remain on the market despite the disappearance from Rocawear's site.
