With a growing list of participating cities, the Occupy Wall Street protests continue to grow in size and media attention.
And celebrities are stepping out to join the movement.
Most of them are lending support.
Even George Clooney thinks it’s a good idea.
Welcomed by demonstrators, celebrities are joining in protest, delivering speeches, and performing.
Well Kanye West has joined the protesters ordaining “Occupy Wallstreet” as Hollywood’s new “It” cause, Danny Glover showed up in LA, and Mark Ruffalo (that gorgeous hunk) called the demonstrations “a beautiful celebration of democracy.”
Lending her usual support, Susan Sarandon hit the streets running and her former X Tim Robbins, declared “This is a good sign of a healthy democracy.”
We can’t ignore Russell Simmon’s speech that he made the protesters repeat back to him. Even Penn Badgley joined in on the fun (whoever that is). And what would a movement be without Michael Moore and Roseanne Barr on hand?
But take note of this recent celebrity to join in the #Occupy WallStreet Protests:
In an official statement in support of the ever-growing movement, Ben & Jerry’s state:
“We, the Ben & Jerry’s Board of Directors, compelled by our personal convictions and our Company’s mission and values, wish to express our deepest admiration to all of you who have initiated the nonviolent Occupy Wall Street Movement and to those around the country who have joined in solidarity. The issues raised are of fundamental importance to all of us.”
The site then goes on to list a handful of the issues (inequality, unemployment, corporate lobbying, etc).
Dylan Ratigan, from MSNBC asks us-
Our question: What name would you give to the Ben & Jerry’s #OccupyWallStreet flavor?
