Susan Sarandon was one of several show business celebrities who personally visited with Occupy Wall Street protesters to lend them support.
“I don't know that much about Wall Street,” Sarandon was quoted as saying in The Associated Press, “but if I was running a business and I made that big of a mistake and lost that many people's future, I don't think I would get a bonus or even keep my job.”
That, of course, depends on how high up one is in any business, including the movie business.
Anyhow, the presence of people like Sarandon, her former companion Tim Robbins, Michael Moore, Penn Badgley, Mark Ruffalo, Roseanne Barr, Kanye West and Russell Simmons irks right-wingers who insist that if you're rich, you can't – in fact, you have no right to – strive for a just socioeconomic system. Unless, of course, you give all your money away and live in rags, begging for money in street corners.
