VIDEO: Kanye West's a Big Spiritual Supporter of Occupy Wall Street, Says His Spokesperson Russell Simmons

Ah yes, this is the protest Kanye West turned up at wearing a $355 Givenchy plaid shirt and a Yeezy necklace from his debut Paris womenswear collection. Watch this video: Russell Simmons does all the talking and Kanye just stands there, expressionless, being a big spiritual supporter of the protests. Or something. On a semi-related note, we think that if Kanye had named his new womenswear label Yeezy, many of the sins he showed on the runway would have been far more easily forgiven.
