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.

With the Occupy Wall Street protests one Foo Fighters performance away from turning into Lollapalooza, we captured your best tweets from the Kanye sighting.
