We Off That: Jay-Z Tells Department of Labor "We Are Past Equal Pay"
According to sources, Jay-Z met with the Department of Labor on Tuesday, announcing, "All that equal pay for women shit...nah, we moved on."
Prominent equal pay advocate Brittany Jenkins was astonished.
"We’ve spent 4 years negotiating terms with the Department of Labor, and they were finally beginning to concede. Jay-Z just undid years of progress."
When reached for comment, Jay-Z was still not moved. "They protested and brought attention to the issue, but look, we gotta move on. We gotta take the next step. We can't just pop off. Unrelated but y’all heard of Lil Uzi Vert?"
In a press release, several equal pay advocates deemed Jay-Z’s move as callous, questioning if this is “part of a bigger plan? Like what is he trying to do?"
A representative from Roc Nation offered clarification.
“We know it may sound hypocritical for Jay-Z to claim we’re ‘past equal pay’ because Jay-Z is a man. People may wonder if he even has skin in the game. But that's the thing — he isn’t just a man, he is a businessman."
Beyoncé refused comment, but was later spotted by paparazzi at a girls’ brunch with her daughters, warning them to "please, for the love of god, never date a corny nigga from the hood. I beg of you."
Jay-Z’s meeting with the Department of Labor is the second of a series of social justice he has planned initiatives is participating, first kicked off in his meeting with the NFL. He also has plans to meet with Palestine to encourage them to “give up, and perhaps leave” before stopping in Hong Kong to tell protesters to “fall back.”
His tour will end with a guest appearance on "State of the Culture," where he plans to confirm Joe Budden’s status as the “hottest rapper alive.”
