We've all been so busy buzzing about the birth of Blue Ivy Carter that we didn't notice some less joyful news out of the Jay-Z camp. His company Rocawear recently laid off more than half of its staff. To make matters worse, the timing of the firings was especially poor.
They fired 28 employees in total for "economic" reasons. The cuts were made on January 6th, just one day before Jay-Z and Beyonce welcomed Blue Ivy to the world in the comfort of a fancy private hospital suite. Well, this does even further damage to the idea that Jay supports the 99%. [The Cut]
