Just like those who came before him (Prime Minister Susan Sarandon and Governor Penn Padgley), Rabbi Kanye West stopped by the Occupy Wall Street protest to lend his voice to the crowd, to assert alongside his peers that the government is in disarray and that the corrupt injustice of class warfare has become too much to bear.
Actually — for the first time ever — he didn’t say anything. He was with his buddy, Speaker of the House Russell Simmons, who acted as his hyperactive publicist, saying, “[Kanye] doesn’t want to make a statement. He didn’t want to do any media at all, actually, but…he’s here.”
That he is. But is he…okay? Because he looks like he might be asleep with his eyes open.
