Kanye West was just spotted with Russell Simmons at the Occupy Wall Street protests down in Zucotti Park.
UPDATE: He left. Everyone started freaking out about him showing up.
When asked about the protests Simmons told us: “I’m here everyday. We need to take the money out of politics. It’s as simple as that.”
When we asked Kanye what he thought of the Occupy Wall Street movement, he didn’t respond.
He’s definitely the biggest celebrity to appear so far. (Russell Simmons, Susan Sarandon, and a few others have shown up.)
