Kanye West shows up at Occupy Wall Street. It's not clear what he has in common with the other 99 percent.

Well, the 99 percent finally has its spokesperson who we can all relate to: Kanye West!

The wealthy rapper (i.e owner of a $1.7 million Mercedes) made an appearance at the #OccupyWallStreet protests this afternoon prompting Twitter users to react in confusion—to say the least.

Russell Simmons on Monday afternoon tweeted a picture of himself standing alongside the gold-necklace-wearing West and that blew up in the Twittersphere.
