He’s no Thom Yorke, but it’ll have to do.

Yes, that Kanye West—the one with the $25,000 chains and small child-sized Horus-head-as-bling pieces—dropped into Occupy Wall Street today. He was apparently accompanied by Def Jam founder Russell Simmons, who Tweeted “kanye west is on his way to #occupywallstreet” with this photo:

It sounds like it was sheer pandemonium, though no definitive accounts other than plenty of pictures and “he was here, and then he left” have yet to come through.

And so it is: Kanye West gets added to the list of celebrities (Susan Sarandon, Jeff Mangum, Michael Moore, Talib Kweli) who have dropped into Occupy Wall Street who are not Thom Yorke.

Also, here’s his gold grill:

      I don’t quite understand why their race needs to be added into your insult. You don’t like them? Fine. You question their intelligence? That’s fine also. However, I’m a bit confused as to what importance their race holds in your insult.

    Kanye West = oxymoron

    If he had worn modest clothing to the protest instead of his usual clothing, then the author of this article would have mocked him for that.

  9. I like how his jewelry, excuse me, BLING, is probably equivalent to someone’s student loans. Kayne West is one of the reason’s people are distracted and uneducated about what is happening in America and the world. Sell out.

    What the hell !!! did’nt they SELL OUT?

    Its doesn’t matter if the outfit Kanye is wearing is suitable for appearance in Occupy Wall Street. . .
    Its a question of what the hell is he doing there?? With the life he has, I don’t see how he could rightfully fit to the equation, unless he is against the Congress/ Gov. agenda of handing out special priviledges/ funds to the wealthy (which I would say includes him!).
