Rapper Jay Z shares confusion with many Americans about what the Occupy movement is actually about. Because of that, he has criticized it, even calling it un-American for demonizing the rich.

He made all of this clear in a recent interview.

“I’m not going to a park and picnic — I have no idea what to do,” Jay-Z said, recalling a conversation with Simmons about joining the movement.

He said Occupy Wall Street’s blanket demonization of the rich is un-American.

“I think all those things need to really declare themselves a bit more clearly because when you just say that ‘the 1 percent is that,’ that’s not true,” he said.

Russell Simmons felt the need to respond to Jay-Z (Sean Carter).

And without wasting any time, Occupy supporters started insulting the rapper.
