Jay-Z's 'Occupy' Shirts Vanish amid Profit Flak

@UncleRUSH/Twitter(NEW YORK) -- Rocawear, clothing line of rapper and entrepreneur Jay-Z, was recently criticized for trying to profit off of protests with a $22 "Occupy All Streets" tee. Soon after news broke about Rocawear's plan not to share proceeds from the shirts with the movement, the t-shirts disappeared from the Rocawear website.

Money is quickly becoming a sticky issue for the various Occupy gatherings in several U.S. cities. While many of the members claim to be against capitalism and rail daily against banks, the organizations are sitting on war chests worth hundreds of thousands of donated dollars -- which the groups' organizers are storing in various banks across the country.
