It’s no big surprise when folks like Michael Moore, Susan Sarandon, and Tim Robbins show up at Occupy Wall Street, but when Kanye West and Russel Simmons make an appearance, you kind of start to think this thing might turn into one big party. Don’t think they stayed too long though. I’d give Kanye a lot of credit if he slept over night in the park with the protesters, but don’t think that will happen.

It becomes a fine line in a way, are celebrities or politicians supporting the protesters or using the growing media coverage for their own personal gains. For now, and for Kanye and Simmons, I think you’ve have to say their support is genuine.

Hat tip to Michael Skolnik for the image.
