Kanye West

Never one to hold back his opinions, Kanye West got into the protest game when he paid a visit to Occupy Wall Street in 2011. While West didn't exactly raise a fist against The Man himself — in fact, he was teased for showing up at the anti-capitalist event rocking gold chains and Gucci loafers — he did spend a fair amount of time listening to the thoughts and concerns of the protesters.
