The 10 Richest Celebrities Supporting Occupy Wall Street
From Celebrity Networth: Street’s slogan “We are the 99%” is derived from the idea that they represent the difference in wealth that separates the top 1% and every other American citizen. The top 1% of Americans is defined as anyone who has an annual household income greater than $593,000. So why are multi-millionaire celebrities showing up to offer their support and grab attention? And why is Occupy Wall Street taking them seriously? Here is a list of the 10 richest celebrities supporting Occupy Wall Street (they have a combined net worth of $1.255 billionby the way):
#1 Yoko Ono Net Worth – $500 million. Ono stated “I love ‘Occupy Wall Street’! John is sending his smile to ‘Occupy Wall Street’. I am sending my love to ‘Occupy Wall Street’. We are all working together. ”
#2 Russell Simmons Net Worth – $325 million. Keep in mind that on top of being a hip-hop mogul Simmons is the founder of a high fee credit card company called UniRush Financial Services.
#3 Roseanne Barr Net Worth – $80 million. Roseanne thinks anyone with over $100 million should be beheaded. Interesting that her net worth is $80 million. I guess she doesn’t make “the cut”.
#4 Deepak Chopra Net Worth – $80 million. Chopra said #OWS is turning anger into awareness. The fortune he has made off his fluff filled books has just turned me to anger.
#5 Kanye West Net Worth – $70 million
#6 Alec Baldwin Net Worth – $65 million
#7 Susan Sarandon Net Worth – $50 million
#8 Michael Moore Net Worth – $50 million
#9 Tim Robbins Net Worth – $50 million
#10 Nancy Pelosi Net Worth – $35.5 million
How come these Occupy Wall Street protestors aren’t demanding these celebrities, part of the very rich they claim to despise, cough up their fair share?
As for these rich celebrities showing up at Occupy Wall Street, have they no shame? I guess when you are seeking publicity, shame knows no bounds. How shallow and empty their lives must be to pursue such a desperate/hypocritical move to enhance their egos.
