Noted Supporter of the 99% Occupies Floor of Hospital

Hip-Hop empresario Jay-Z has expressed his support Occupy Wall Street in his own way before. If reports of the trip to the hospital for the birth of Jay-Z and Beyonce’s baby are accurate, he’s still standing behind the 99%… actually, way behind them, down the hall, past the security guards and up the elevator:

To accommodate the influential couple’s demand for privacy at Lenox Hill Hospital, other new and expecting parents said they were essentially put on “lockdown” and even booted out of the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) — on the same floor as Beyonce’s delivery “suite” — so the pampered songstress and her party could come and go unencumbered.

“They just used the hospital like it was their own and nobody else mattered,” raged new dad Neil Coulon, whose efforts to see his premature, newborn twins in the NICU were disrupted by the birth of little Blue Ivy Carter.

“They locked us into the NICU and would say, ‘You can’t come out to the hallway for the next 20 minutes.’ When I finally was able to go back out, I went to the waiting room and they’d ushered my family downstairs!”

Congrats to the happy parents! And by “happy parents” I mean Jay-Z and Beyonce, because some of the other parents at the hospital still don’t sound very happy:

Last night, at least four security guards stood watch at the hospital’s fourth-floor elevator bank, where new parents and grandparents were still voicing their frustrations over security measures that delayed or completely prevented them from visiting.

“People are really upset and complaining,” said the hospital worker, noting that the medical staff has to “shut down” whenever there’s movement on Beyoncé’s part.

But at the end of the day, there was another satisfied 99er courtesy of a fabulously wealthy OWS advocate:

Coulon scoffed at the double-standard treatment.

“I know they spent $1.3 million and I’m just a contractor from Bed-Stuy, but the treatment we received was not okay,” Coulon said.

Cool it, dude — if you play your cards right you might be allowed up to the private suites and given the opportunity to purchase matching OWS onesies for your newborn twins.
