Top 25 'Occupy' Supporters Worth More Than $4 Billion
With a slogan lamenting, “we are the 99 percent” one would assume that the remaining one-percent would stay out of the protests. But that's not quite the case at all.
25 of America's most affluent celebrities have thrown their support at OWS. The group is worth $4.1 billion combined.
From the sounds of things, several of these celebs may not be fully aware of just how much wealth they truly possess, especially comedian Roseanne Barr, who said there should be a maximum wage cap of $100 million (she's worth a cool $80 million herself).
Barr has called for some seriously strict measures to be taken as an attack on the “extremely affluent” citizens of our country. She said we should return to the days of the guillotine and beheadings of the past in order to punish those guilty of possessing extreme riches:
''I do say that I am in favor of the return of the guillotine and that is for the worst of the worst of the guilty. I first would allow the guilty bankers to pay, you know, the ability to pay back anything over $100 million [of] personal wealth because I believe in a maximum wage of $100 million. And if they are unable to live on that amount then they should, you know, go to the re-education camps and if that doesn't help, then being beheaded.''
Crazy enough, she's not standing alone. Here is a jaw-dropping list of the top 25 wealthiest celebrities who support the Occupy Wall Street Movement, compiled by Celebrity Net Worth:
