Former wrestler slams OWS protesters as hypocrites

News

The Occupy Wall Streeters took a piledriver to the face when former WWF wrestler Ultimate Warrior (Brian Hellwig) called them a bunch of hypocrites.

"I find it a little ironic that most of these kids own iPads and iPhones and all these material things. They're a big part of the consumerism that goes on in this country," Warrior told TMZ.

It looks like he's probably right. Social media, such as Twitter, has been a big help in organizing the movement. And OWS organizer Justin Wedes is pushing protesters to get in on it by using their iPhones.

From the Detroit Free Press:

“I call it tweets from the streets,” Wedes said Sunday night in Detroit in a talk broadcast on Livestream. “Take your computer to the streets. Take your iphone, your smartphone…Make the street your office, Make the park your office.”

And here's a photo taken by THE BLAZE's Mike Opelka showing some OWSers sitting on garbage bags with what appears to be an iPhone and a MacBook.
